    This is fantastic news for the charity & the Board of Trustees made sure that part of the interview process involved a cross section of staff & volunteers. The shortlisted candidates gave a 15 minute presentation & then faced a Q&A session from the volunteers, front-line staff & some managers.

    Dr Gillespie was my preferred candidate, I was able to ask a question of each of the candidates & I was particularly impressed by the way Dr Gillespie engaged with me & others who quizzed her.

    All HIV charities are facing massive challenges in the era of the New NHS / Local Authority debacle that has resulted in the fragmentation of services. I am sure Dr Gillespie will ensure that THT meets these challenges & goes from strength to strength.

    I am really looking forward to working alongside the new Executive in my current service user facing role. An exciting and challenging year ahead both for me personally & for the organisation as a whole.

    Having worked with Rosemary in a previous role THT has made a fantastic appointment. The organisation can only go from strength to strength building on the excellent work done by everyone so far.

  3. Another Unnecessary, extortionate salary no doubt for a charity that according to it’s own survey has systematically failed to educate the country and prevent HIV transmission – pathetic waste of hard found donations being diverted from the communities who need them.

    Wait for W6 to pull his tongue out of her arse and respond in his usual meelly mouthed (salary saving) way

      For someone who used to work for the organisation JD I don’t seem to remember you complaining when THT were paying you a decent salary – sour grapes that you were made redundant maybe, or perhaps you didn’t have the skill set to be considered an asset to the organisation when regrettably redundancies were being considered.

      Either way, we have a new Executive Team which I believe will take the organisation forward, & I am pleased to have taken part in the selection process!
