Blind Veterans UK – Database Executive


About Us

We’re Blind Veterans UK, a charity that helps vision-impaired ex-service people from every generation rebuild their lives after their sight has been affected. Founded in 1915, by Sir Arthur Pearson, to help the many veterans losing their sight after the First World War, we have over a century of experience providing the best care to our veterans.

Since then, we’ve provided support to tens of thousands of vision-impaired veterans, helping them to regain their independence. By providing our members with the tools and skills they need to lead a fulfilling and active life, we ensure they remain valued members of society.

We are currently seeking a Database Executive to join our Data Management team on a permanent, full-time basis, working 35 hours per week. This is a home-based role.

This is a great opportunity for a proactive and outcome-focused Database Executive to manage the import and export of supporter and financial data to our Raiser’s Edge database.

You will play a pivotal role in the lifelong support we provide veterans to regain their independence and live fulfilling lives after sight loss.

We don’t just care for our beneficiaries; we care for our staff too. With a wide range of benefits to ensure the long-term health and prosperity of our team, you’ll have everything you need to be happy, healthy and engaged at home and work.
