Project officer

To join our international department, we are looking for a Project officer (temporary position) for 32 hours per week. 

Aidsfonds - STI AIDS Netherlands works as one organization on a world without AIDS and on reduction of STIs and HIV in the Netherlands. Over 140 highly motivated people work at our office in Amsterdam.

We are at a historic turning point in the fight against AIDS. We have all the knowledge to defeat the AIDS epidemic for good. In the Netherlands and in the rest of the world. But it is not yet a completed race. If we do not put the fight against AIDS at the highest speed now, the epidemic will continue. That may not happen. Together with 140,000 donors and partners, such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Postcode Loterij, Aidsfonds does everything to prevent that. As one of the largest private funds, we have been playing a pioneering role in the fight against AIDS for years. To put an end to AIDS, we work with local communities, do research and ensure that AIDS remains high on the global agenda.

The international department consists of two teams – the Children, Youth and Women team and Key Populations team – which are supported by global advocates, a strategic policy advisor, a gender advisor, a PM&EL advisor, a business developer and an institutional fundraiser. Collectively we work on different projects in flexible teams to successfully reach our organisational objectives.
