Partnerships Officer

About the role

Salary: £25,000 - £27,000 depending on experience

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 recent merger of Fight for Sight and Vision Foundation 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 to 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.

The Partnerships Officer will account manage a portfolio of active Small Trusts and Corporate donations whilst also providing research and administrative support to the high-value team. This is a great role for someone that has some fundraising experience and would like to develop their high-value relationship skills.
