Interim Senior Public Fundraising Manager

Senior Public Fundraising Manager, Interim. Part time (3 or 4 days per week) £50-55k FTE

Salary: £50,000 to £55,000 FTE (depending on experience) - part time (3 - 4 days a week)

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. We’ve secured well-respected and highly engaged ambassadors and patrons, from Sir John Major and Marsha De Cordova MP.

We are now looking for experienced, committed, and creative individuals to join our dynamic team as we devise and launch a new five-year strategy. You’ll be part of something impactful, we’d love to hear from you.

As Interim Senior Public Fundraising Manager, covering maternity leave, you will be responsible for an ambitious team of nine with three experienced direct reports covering Individual Giving  Community and Challenge Events. As a newly merged organisation we launch our new organisational and fundraising strategy in Spring 2024. The Interim Senior Public Fundraising Manager will oversee the delivery of the new public fundraising strategy. The post holder will also lead the implementation of the new brand across these areas and support with its launch programme.   

Responsible to: Director of Development

Direct Reports: Events and Community Manager, Individual Giving Manager and Senior Individual Giving Officer.

Working hours and contract: This is a part time maternity cover role until July 2024 (3 or 4 days per week).
