Vista changes lives. We are the leading local charity working with children and adults affected by sight loss and are looking for a candidate with strong charity finance and board governance experience to join our team.

You are all the things a good FD should be, with extensive experience of working at a senior level in the charity sector which has taught you how to support colleagues at all levels. You have a good head for governance, are naturally patient and systematic and want a board-level role that allows you to make a genuine impact on people’s lives.

As Director of Finance and Governance you will also be our Company Secretary and DPO, supporting the CEO and Board of Trustees to ensure that Vista is fully compliant with all regulatory requirements.

Vista is going through a period of change and service development so we are looking for someone who is willing to embrace this and has the requisite imagination and foresight to thrive in this environment.

Benefits: 31 days annual leave (pro rota for part time), inclusive of bank holidays, plus your birthday off as a gift from Vista; extended maternity/paternity leave; full training for the role; flexible and hybrid working; excellent health benefits; free and unlimited access to an independent and confidential Employee Assistance Programme.

We welcome applications from all candidates, regardless of any protected characteristic and are an equal opportunity employer.  We particularly welcome applications from candidates with disabilities including visual impairment, and we encourage applications from such people who are under-represented in our workforce and face disadvantage on account of disability. All candidates will be treated equally, and we will base decisions on appointments on the merits of the candidates.
