This is a unique opportunity for a senior fundraiser to take a strategic lead in income generation, profile raising of the brand and positioning Operation Eyesight UK as a leader in sustainable international development.

Operation Eyesight is an innovative international development organisation that is working to eliminate avoidable blindness with the help of private donations and public support. They are a well established Canadian charity that manage a comprehensive range of all levels of eye care, from training community workers to building and refurbishing hospital infrastructure in developing countries globally. Having just launched in the UK, OE are now looking for a Development Director to expand the impact of their work by attracting funding from around the world.

You will be working closely with a well connected Board of Trustees to identify, cultivate, solicit and develop major donor, corporate and innovative funding streams to support the charity's growth and development. You will be a self-starter, combining passion and an excellent track record of generating high value gifts. This will be ideal for someone who has significant charity fundraising experience, including managing high level donor relationships.
