At Aidsfonds - Soa Aids Nederland, we strive for a world where there are no longer any deaths from AIDS and where people enjoy good sexual health. A world in which everyone can love freely and without fear. We do this by working together with the people who are hit hardest by HIV, STIs, discrimination and exclusion. We strengthen their voices and support them with access to information, knowledge and funding. For all that is love.
The International Department is responsible for funding community-led action to increase access to health and rights, as well as for conducting global advocacy towards these aims. We focus on communities of populations living with or affected by HIV (including LGBTIQ+ people, sex workers, people who use drugs, youth, women and children) in 10 countries and two (2) regions worldwide. Our 2022-2025 strategy “For All that is Love” describes our ambition towards increased co-decision making with community representatives throughout our funding. The International Department consists of an advocacy team, the Secretariat of the Robert Carr Fund, and two programmatic teams: Key Populations and Children, Youth & Women. The teams’ work is organized by projects with project leaders responsible for the implementation and budgetary oversight.
To join the Key Populations team we are looking for a
32/36 hours per week
Worldwide, key populations continue to account for a disproportionate number of HIV infections and AIDS deaths. We have the tools to ensure that people living with HIV can live a healthy and long life, and new infections can be prevented. Gender and power inequalities stand in the way of access to good prevention, treatment and care for many LGBTIQ+ people, people who use drugs and sex workers. Aidsfonds is committed to supporting these communities to access their full rights. The Key Populations Team contributes to this aim by supporting community-led partnerships and projects and by leading on global advocacy.
The Team Leader undertakes human resources responsibilities for the team and its members. The Team Leader monitors and actively facilitates the quality of implementation, knowledge management within the team, and strategic coordination of the team’s broad project portfolio. You contribute to the optimization of business processes, fundraising and organisational development. Your role as a team leader is to allow your team members to flourish, based on the principles of servant leadership and to make a significant contribution to our ambitions on diversity and inclusion. Servant leadership is a leadership style in which the goal of the leader is to serve. Servant leaders share power, put the needs of the employees first and support people develop and perform as highly as possible. The eight qualities of a servant leadership includes: authenticity, empowerment, ownership, modesty, stewardship, responsibility, empowerment, forgiveness. Aidsfonds offers training to new colleagues on servant leadership.
First of all, we offer you an ambitious and diverse organization. We work together in an accessible, open and inspiring atmosphere and deliver on quality-based appealing goals and clear roles.

We are curious about your talents and your social drive to work with us on our mission. You look at issues from different perspectives and you connect with the communities with whom we work because you can draw on your own experience, have become acquainted with members of these communities or are interested in working with them (people living with HIV, women, youth and children, LGBTIQ+ people, people with a migration background, (former) sex workers, (former) drug users).
