Company Overview

ViiV Healthcare is a global specialty HIV company, the only one that is 100% focused on researching and delivering new medicines for people living with, and at risk of, HIV. ViiV is highly mission-driven in our unrelenting commitment to being a trusted partner for all people living with and affected by HIV. Our aim is to think, act, and connect differently through a focus on education on and treatment for HIV. We go to extraordinary lengths to deliver the sorts of breakthroughs, both in treatments, care solutions and working with communities, that really count. We go beyond the boundaries of medicine by taking a holistic approach to HIV through developing and supporting sustainable community programs and improving access to care. We are fully committed to push through every challenge until HIV/AIDS is eradicated. ViiV has played a significant part in delivering breakthroughs that have turned HIV into a manageable health condition. We offer the largest portfolio of HIV medicines available anywhere, and we continue our work to cater for the widest possible range of needs in response to the HIV epidemic.

We are aware of how much is at stake for those affected by HIV and we show up every day 100% committed to the patients. Our work culture is fast-paced, diverse, inclusive, competitive, and caring. But ViiV isn’t just somewhere to work – it’s a place to belong, an invitation to bring your very best, and a team full of impact-driven team members who are hungry to make a difference.

While we have been improving lives of HIV patients for 30 years, this is an especially exciting time to be at ViiV, as we evaluate novel approaches to treatment and prevention that could further reduce the impact of HIV on individuals and communities.

ViiV is seeking an experienced, results-driven professional for the position of External Affairs Community Liaison. The US External Affairs team is committed to disrupting the enduring racial disparities that define the HIV epidemic in the US. Our work is focused on accelerating the response for the communities most affected by HIV. The ability to thrive in a fast-paced, complex environment and work with local community leaders in HIV and beyond is critical.

It is expected that the successful candidate will have demonstrated experience working within communities to achieve change and address HIV, social determinants of health, or other disparities. The ability to partner cross-functionally with other ViiV Healthcare teams will be critical.

Success in this role means that we will have improved outreach and engagement in HIV care and prevention for the most disproportionately affected groups in the territories.
