Our client is the only charity in the UK dedicated to beating macular disease by funding medical research and providing a range of support services. Over a million people in the UK are losing their sight through macular disease; the leading cause of blindness in the developed world, and with an ageing population, this number is set to double by 2050. The need for their Society is growing – and so is the need for a cure.

Your excellent writing skills, aptitude for research and relationship building will help them to achieve their mission. By writing targeted applications for funding to these trusts, you will contribute to raising the funds that will help them end the devastating impact of sight loss experienced by people with macular disease.

•    Excellent writing skills to produce copy that is inspiring, concise and informative.
•    Ability to work proactively under own initiative to meet deadlines.
•    A team player, with a flexible approach, willing to work with and support colleagues across the organisation.
