Our current Chief Officer is retiring so we are recruiting someone to manage and lead our organisation. Vision Northumberland is a well-established and highly respected local charity, meeting the needs of people with sight loss. The Charity offers a range of services including:
- a dedicated resource and information centre
- a low vision assessment service
- Client Connect, our telephone befriending service
- our volunteer transport service
- a community cafe
- a broad range of social and leisure activities
- outreach services within local communities
- volunteering opportunities
We are passionate about ensuring that the voices of people with sight loss are heard by decision-makers and policy makers and campaign at a local and national level to bring about improvements in services.
We are looking for a Chief Executive to develop the core services of the organisation as our funding landscape changes; someone who has a proven track record of income generation from small grants to statutory contracts.
They will act as an ambassador for the organisation both locally and nationally and should be fully committed and supportive of what we do, our staff, volunteers and members of the Charity.
