Trustees | SeeAbility


Compass Executives are delighted to be partnered with SeeAbility in its search for 2 x Trustees, for their charity which encourages people with disabilities to challenge what they expect from life, from themselves and from wider society. This is an exciting time to join the organisation as it continues to maximise the impact of its critical work on raising the profile of the prevalence of sight loss amongst people with learning disabilities and autism.

The next five years will see the charity celebrate its 220th anniversary, complete the world’s largest study on the eye care needs of children with learning disabilities and continue to carry out sight tests in special schools.

As a Trustee you must be inspiring, energetic, and commercial, able to provide support and challenge in equal measure. You will be sharing the benefit and experience of an accomplished career and we are actively seeking candidates who bring experience operating at a board or strategic level within a broad range of commercial sectors.

  • senior level corporate marketing or fundraising within agile organisations where customer experience and impact are key to its success.
  • demonstrable success at Board level, in a healthcare, charitable, public sector or commercial organisations
