Vision West of England
Contract Type: 
Details of Role: 

Vision West of England exists to reduce the impact of sight loss, supporting blind and partially sighted people to lead independent lives and to secure equal access to services.  We deliver local services across Bristol, Bath and South Gloucestershire, and in Wiltshire under the banner of Wiltshire Sight. 

We are looking for individuals to join Vision West of England’s board of trustees.  The board should collectively have a balanced range of skills, experience and contacts.  Following a skills audit of existing trustees we would like to add to our board’s expertise in the specific areas of HR and people development, finance, legal and contracting, and media and communications. 

Individually, our trustees should have organisational or management experience, or should be able to bring valuable insights and perspectives which support Vision West of England’s work with blind and partially-sighted people across the West of England.  

Whilst we welcome applications from anyone who meets our selection criteria, Vison West of England is particularly interested to receive applications from people who are living with visual impairment, as we aim to ensure that a significant proportion of the Board have lived experience of sight loss. 

Closing Date: 
Monday, 1 April, 2019 - 17:00
