Blesma – The Limbless Veterans is the national charity and membership association for limbless serving and ex-service men and women and their dependants.  It exists to help its people to lead independent and fulfilling lives.

With a turnover of over £6M in 2019, Blesma continues to provide tailored advice and support to its members through a network of Support and Outreach officers.  

The Operations Director leads a high-performing team that delivers efficient, effective and sustainable fundraising, our communications strategy and an activities programme that has gone from strength to strength over recent years.

The Fundraising department sustains the Association through individual, corporate, legacy and regional fundraising as well as grants, sponsorship, direct marketing and fundraising events.  The Communications team reaches a variety of internal and external audiences through the Blesma magazine, regular bulletins, a popular website and coverage on both social and conventional media.  Our Member Activities programme varies from extreme endurance events, through sporting and challenge expeditions to social activities for families. As a charity, we are committed to ensuring that every penny we receive is spent wisely and this forms the foundation of our commitment to the donors who support our work.

We seek to attract and employ the best people from the widest talent pool, as well as those who reflect the diverse nature of our society. Blesma encourages a culture where people can be themselves and be valued for their strengths.
