Job description

Are you a compassionate and inspiring leader with a successful strategic and operational track record? This is an exciting time to join Croydon Vision as we embark on the next phase of delivering our ambitious strategy.

Come and join us as we paint the next 100 years for Croydon Vision. We are based in the heart of Croydon, South London.  We support and empower people of all ages affected by visual impairment.  You will be taking over from the excellent work of Susanette Mansour, who is moving onto new opportunities after seven years in post.  

Salary: £55-65K

Location: Croydon, South London

Benefits: 28 days holiday excluding bank holidays

Contract: Full-time (open to discussing four days)

Croydon Vision is an amazing charity based in the heart of Croydon, South London, that supports people of all ages with sight loss. Over the past few years, we have transformed as an organisation, improving the lives of our members from dependence to independence. We’ve extended our reach to Croydon’s wider community, increased the diversity of our membership, developed new strategic partnerships, and invested time and resources in team development.

About the role:

We’re looking for an experienced leader who has “the heart of charity and the mindset of a business approach” to help shape what the future holds and who is adept at executing strategies and capturing opportunities whilst keeping the culture and bringing the entire team along on this exciting journey – from Board through to staff and volunteers. Your goal will be to harness shared strengths and explore new opportunities.

About you:
You’ll need all the following skills and experiences in your toolkit to provide effective leadership for Croydon Vision. These can be gained in the Not-for-Profit sector or the commercial sector:

  • Inspire and lead people towards the achievement of excellence,
  • be compassionate and values-driven,
  • the ability to think strategically and translate strategy into operational objectives underpinned by robust measurement systems,
  • recognise needs and opportunities in the development of services,
  • manage operations to a budget with effective systems of financial management, control and reporting,
  • ability to deploy knowledge of the charity sector and related funding issues to the benefit of the organisation,
  • ability to identify and develop new sources of voluntary income,
  • manage organisational change and restructuring effectively and sensitively, to meet the needs of the charity and its members,
  • work effectively with external partners, stakeholders and Board of Trustees, and
  • an affinity for people with all forms of sight loss and championing their needs.

If you have an understanding of the needs of people of all ages with sight loss and of financial management and commercial acumen, that can be related to the charity sector, developing and marketing paid-for services then would be a bonus
