Job description

If you are naturally patient, organised and have reliable and experience of enabling senior leaders to achieve then Vista needs you to support our Chief Executive by providing administrative and secretarial support and co-ordinating the smooth day-to-day running of our head office.  

Vista is an independent, local charity providing information, support and care to people affected by sight loss who live in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. We have been doing so for over 180 years and are working hard to make sure we will do so for the future too.  

We are looking for a special person to take on this new role to help us get back on our feet after Covid-19 and deliver on our future plans.   Ideally, you will have training and qualifications relevant to the role and experience of working in the third sector, and we will provide all the training you need to excel in the role. 

You will, however, need to bring:

  • Excellent interpersonal, communication and organisational skills;
  • Ability to work on your own initiative to anticipate and prioritise work and ensure tasks are completed on time;
  • Natural tact and diplomacy with a warm sense of humour.

In return we offer a competitive salary, staff benefits scheme, flexibility and opportunities for professional and personal development in one of the largest local charities and a leading organisation in the sight loss sector. This job will never be boring and is yours to develop within our team. 

Working for Vista means you will be working for one of the oldest and largest local charities in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland, working with people with sight loss and their families

We welcome applications from all candidates, regardless of any protected characteristic and are an equal opportunity employer. We particularly welcome applications from candidates with disabilities including visual impairments, and we encourage applications from such people who are under-represented in our workforce and face disadvantage on account of disability. 

All candidates will be treated equally, and we will base decisions on appointments on the merits of the candidates
