Job description

London Vision supports blind and partially sighted people who live, work and study in London. Our vision is a society and a capital city where blind and partially sighted people can participate fully.  Our mission is to make London more equal and inclusive.

Our work includes information provision, influencing and championing change, networks and community connections and projects which aim to “bridge the gap” to bring about greater inclusivity and equality.

Currently supported by Thomas Pocklington Trust, our shared ambition is for London Vision to widen its funding base so as to reach more people affected by sight loss.

 

Purpose of the job

The postholder will be responsible for the leadership and governance of the charity. Working closely with staff and a new trustee board, you will develop London Vision’s new three-year strategy, secure new sources of funding and support London Vision’s development and positioning as a trusted and authentic organisation for blind and partially sighted people in London. 

This role may be worked full time or part time and we are happy to discuss flexible hours due to childcare or other caring responsibilities.
