eCommerce Assistant

About the role

Salary: £23,933 per annum

Every 6 minutes, someone learns that they are losing their sight. Every five hours, a baby is born with sight problems. In these moments, two profound questions emerge:

  • Can this be stopped?
  • How do I (or my child) live this life?

The merger of Fight for Sight and Vision Foundation on 1st April 2023 will enable us to address both questions. By combining our strengths and expertise we’ll be the only significant national funder with the efficiency, capability, and capacity to increase investment in medical research and social improvement. Together we can mitigate both the prevalence and impact of sight loss.

We have a clear ambition, led by our CEO, Keith Valentine, who has valuable lived experience of sight loss. This ambition includes retail growth plans and an income generation strategy to open more shops over the next 5 years. We currently operate 10 shops selling donated goods. Our eBay shop receives donations daily from the public which then need to be sorted, researched, and listed for sale.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced eCommerce Assistant at this key stage in our retail growth plans.

The role demands a great blend of skills, along with the belief that every blind and partially sighted Londoner should be able to lead their life to the full.

As an equal opportunities’ employer, Fight for Sight and Vision Foundation welcomes applicants from all backgrounds irrespective of race, religion, belief, gender, disability, age or sexual orientation.
