Job vacancies

Leicester Ageing Together is a fantastic programme to work for; our staff are experienced, caring and passionate about what they do, and in return we provide a working environment in which staff can flourish. If you join our team, you can help us reduce social isolation for older people in Leicester.

We wish you the best of luck in your search.

Director of New Opportunities (Vista)

22 hrs per week, £42,843 pro rata

We do lots of things at Vista, we run award winning services with our award winning staff. We support 6,000 children, young people working age adults and older people with sight loss, we work in schools and in care homes and we’ve grown 40% in the last 2 years.

We have an ambition to be even better than we are now, we have an ambition to provide more benefit to the people we support now, and to reach those who could be but are not currently supported by Vista. This is where you come in.

This is a real opportunity to develop interesting new models of support, build partnerships that deliver real social change, generate ideas that can inform and influence, and then take the ideas through to implementation.

This is not an operational role, though it will involve working closely with Operational colleagues. This is not a Fundraising or Marketing role though it will involve working closely with Fundraising and Marketing.

This is about creating the next generation of opportunities for Vista to be of more benefit to more people. That might be in service development, it might be in influencing policy, and it might be in generating research – but whatever form it takes it is not about business as usual.

What we are looking for is     

  • Someone who is passionate about making social impact happen and developing new partnerships
  •  Someone who can balance creativity and sustainability.
  • Someone who can help us be better at doing what we do.
  • Someone who is outward facing, and can help us to stay at the forefront

 In return we offer excellent health benefits, a defined contribution pension scheme and access to an employee assistance programme.
