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

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.
