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.
Whilst this role reports into the Community & Events Fundraising Manager, they work 1 day per week, meaning that this role has a huge amount of autonomy. If you’re looking for a role where you can spread your wings and start to take the next step in your career, but like the idea of having some strategic support in place, then this could well be the job for you.
Our community fundraising programme is focused on highly committed families who arrange their own fundraising initiatives, with support, insight, and guidance from us. During the incredibly difficult pandemic year, our amazing groups were able to raise £70k, which has allowed us to launch a pioneering partnership with Moorfields Eye Hospital.
Our events portfolio is focused on third-party running events, including the London Marathon and Great North Run.
Whilst we are open to ideas from across the community & events fundraising spectrum, one of the key areas of growth for us will be in the development of a portfolio of bespoke events. We are looking for a creative thinker with a keen eye for opportunities, combined with the passion to take your ideas from concept to reality.
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 community & events 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 work in an empowering environment where you will have the room to explore and test new ideas, then this could well be the place for you.
