We are recruiting for two Catwalk 4 Power Coordinators!

Tuesday, November 27th, 2018


SALARY  £25,000 to 27,000 per annum pro rata, depending on experience
HOURS 15 hours per week
DURATION 1 Year fixed-term contract

Catwalk For Power Coordinator (two posts):

This one-year project will build on the success of the 2018 Catwalk 4 Power Resistance and Hope. Our pilot model gathered over 20 women with HIV to promote action to challenge stigma through creative participatory methods.

In 2019 the Catwalk for Power will create three series of workshops, with three different women’s groups (London, Brighton and Manchester), to look at the roots of stigma towards women with HIV and develop skills and strategies to confront it.  The workshops will lead to the performance of three Catwalks 4 Power, where women with HIV will manifest empowerment through their performances and with the outfits they have styled and/or designed. 

The project coordinators and volunteers will also do outreach in the wider community through local market stalls. Markets are a key place for social interaction between women, therefore each catwalk group will organize two market stalls displaying products produced during the workshops to disseminate information and raise awareness through women-specific HIV resources.  

At the end the project coordinators in collaboration with volunteers, participants and Positively UK staff, will produce a report in the form of a Catwalk 4 Power ‘toolkit’ ,  to share learning so that other women’s groups around the world can be inspired and know how to create their own Catwalks for Power.  

Successful candidates will be:

  • Diagnosed, and living with HIV, for at least two years
  • Open about living with HIV
  • Self-starters, able to work as part of a team and under own supervision
  • Experienced in public speaking and/or activism
  • Interested in arts and crafts or performing arts
