RTW in the UK essential
With gene therapy now available on the NHS as treatment for some forms of sight loss and therapies for other forms now at phase 3 clinical trials, we have never been closer to relegating sight loss to the history books. Now is the time to ramp up investment and build stronger partnerships, not rest on our laurels.
As the leading UK charity dedicated to stopping sight loss through pioneering research, Fight for Sight is at the forefront of making the above aim a reality. With a visually-impaired CEO joining us, who will soon be launching our new 5-year strategy, we are putting the lived experience of those with sight loss at the heart of what we do. Off the back of incredible success across our 2017 – 2022 strategy and a near 100% increase in income, we’ve never been better placed for success.
We currently invest over £8 million into 159 research projects across 44 leading universities and hospitals around the UK, funding some of the brightest minds in science. We are determined to create a world that everyone can see, and we have the resources and networks needed to make it happen.
You will be taking over an established trusts portfolio of c.£1.5m, made up of around 400 trust mailing respondents, 100 small donors. 50 medium donors, and 4 donors providing large strategic gifts. Whilst the programme doesn’t run itself, it is built on solid foundations and has a framework of extremely strong relationships; the programme is primed for growth and we’re excited to meet the person whose passion will help us achieve this.
The last few years has seen us become the first medical research partner of a number of large foundations, and those relationships continue to develop and flourish. We’re able to clearly explain our work and demonstrate the impact it will have on people’s lives. Our ability to engage with these non-traditional donors is a clear sign of the strength of our message.
We are routinely commended for being able to demonstrate our impact and the through-line from cutting-edge research to real-world application, above and beyond that seen from some of the country’s largest medical research charities. We know what we’re doing and we do it well.
Why you should apply
If the 10% non-contributory pension, inclusive and supportive culture, and exciting plans for the future don’t cinch it for you… Then you should join because this is an incredible role for someone who is looking to take the next step in their career; our trust fundraising programme has fantastic foundations and fundamentals, the investment and organisation is in place to facilitate growth and our appetite for change and new ideas is large. In short, if you want to take everything you’ve learned to date and sculpt a trust fundraising programme that is your version of perfect, with the full support of our board and SLT, then this is the place to do it.
Veganuary is the non-profit that encourages people to go vegan for the month of January - and beyond. We focus on changing consumer behaviours and attitudes, while providing lots of information and practical support - to make the transition to veganism as easy and enjoyable as possible.
We also work with businesses to drive up vegan food provisions in shops and restaurants and have made veganism more visible and accessible through our work with national and international media.
What we do
- Our Aim: A world without animal farms and slaughterhouses. A world where food production does not decimate forests, pollute rivers and oceans, exacerbate climate change and drive wild animal populations to extinction.
- Our Mission: To inspire and support people to try vegan, drive corporate change, and create a global mass movement, championing compassionate food choices with the aim of ending animal farming, protecting the planet, and improving human health.
We work toward our lofty ambitions by following a simple, 3-step plan:
- Encouraging and supporting millions of people to try veganism.
- Creating the necessary media and social media buzz to raise awareness of the topic and the benefits of a vegan lifestyle.
- Encouraging companies to promote and launch more delicious vegan options to increase the quality, availability and visibility of vegan food.
How we do it
You’ll have no doubt seen our public campaigns for Veganuary, you may even have tried it yourself. We’re incredibly proud of the global movement we’ve built, and it continues to grow year-on-year.
The part of work you might be a little less familiar with is our work in influencing businesses. The more businesses speak positively about veganism and launch new vegan products, the better the availability, visibility and quality of vegan products becomes, making it easier and tastier to try vegan. This is inspiring more people to choose plant-based options and stick with it long term.
Amongst many others, we are incredibly proud to have worked with the following companies to increase their vegan offering:
What we’re looking for
As we head into the next phase of our strategy, we are looking for a talented Head of Operations and Finance who can help us build a robust, sustainable organisation. You will help us to shore up our gains to date and capitalise on the increasing number of growth opportunities coming our way.

We are looking for someone who can work closely with the board and executive to devise and implement business plans that are robust enough to accommodate our rapid growth and flexible enough to take advantage of new opportunities.
You will lead on financial management, supervise and optimise the organisation’s operations in the UK, and support our growing international team in operational matters.
Playing a pivotal part in the Senior Management Team, you will be responsible for ensuring that Veganuary’s day-to-day operations - including governance, administration, HR, finance, legal and IT remain compliant, responsive and efficient.

- Do you enjoy building efficient structures and processes that limit bureaucracy and drive growth?
