We especially welcome applications from groups which reflect George House Trusts’ service user groups – HIV positive people (and other disabled people), gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, people from black and minority ethnic groups, and people from refugee communities.

 

George House Trust’s recruitment and selection procedures reflect our commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and vulnerable adults.

 

A Disclosure & Barring Service check will be requested, at the time that a job offer is made.

 

George House Trust's vision is for all people living in the North West of England to live happy and healthy lives and be free from stigma and discrimination; for all people to know their HIV status and to be HIV aware. Read our Mission and Values here.
