BRAVO VICTOR, a research organisation registered with the Charity Commission, was born out of Blind Veterans UK, a charity with a long history of serving and supporting veterans. Our hope is for a future where the risks of sight loss and disability are reduced, and those affected can live a full and independent life.
In 2017, Blind Veterans UK set up a Research and Innovation Department to explore research into the effects of sight loss. Work has included joint programmes with the University of Oxford, the Thomas Pocklington Trust, the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence, the United States Department of Defense, the National Health Service (NHS) England and the UK Sight Loss Sector Partnership.
The Sight Loss Sector Partnership has awarded BRAVO VICTOR a grant to establish and operate a new and exciting web-based development, the Sight Loss Sector Hub, and we are looking for a full time (initially 24-month full time) manager to lead this project and its subsequent operation. The Sight Loss Sector Hub, being adapted from and with permission by the Veterans & Families Research Hub (opens a new window).
The post-holder will deliver on the development, management and curation of the Sight Loss Sector Hub, supported by a part time research scientist and working with a commercial website building partner. The successful candidate will be required to work independently and work to demanding project deadlines. The post-holder will be supervised by the Chief Scientific Officer at BRAVO VICTOR, with guidance from an engaged Hub Steering Group from the Sight Loss Sector Partnership. You will work with a diverse and large group of external stakeholders and manage important relationships.

Additionally, they will have professional experience of managing hub platforms and research independently and to deadlines, including gathering, collecting, and securely managing data, using a range of analysis and cataloguing techniques and producing lay reports. They will be required to present work to potential users or stakeholders, using the most appropriate (easy to understand) way to communicate findings and implications.
