Fight for Sight is the UK’s leading charity that is stopping sight loss through funding pioneering research.
Our vision is to create a future everyone can see. By funding world-leading scientists and clinicians we are helping make sight loss a thing of the past. We’ve already made huge strides. But the fight must go on.
There are currently over two million people in the UK affected by sight loss and this is set to double by 2050. For half of these people their sight loss is avoidable through a sight test and prescription lenses. For the rest it is not so straight forward. Medical research is vital if we are to find ways of preventing, detecting, treating and reversing sight loss.
Yet eye research is woefully underfunded. As the leading sight loss charity that funds research we need to raise our profile and awareness and increase our income so that we can increase our impact. We will not rest until we have a future everyone can see.
If you are an experienced marketing professional we need your help. We are looking for a Trustee to join our Board who will be committed to what we do and provide the skills and experience that we know we need. We are looking for an individual to challenge us, be part of shaping us going forward and become part of a strengthened and ambitious team. It is expected that the successful candidate will also join the Marketing & Fundraising Board Committee with the possibility of chairing this committee at a later stage.
