Job: Campaign Manager for Our Children’s Vision – UK, Ireland and Northern Europe
Location: Based with Vision Aid Overseas, Crawley, West Sussex (with some home-working possible)
Full-time, initial one-year contract (with probable extension to two)
Competitive salary, some national and international travel required
Our Children’s Vision has been gaining momentum over the last few years, with the total number of supporting and implementing partners now standing at 61. Following recent announcements including the prioritisation of eye health by the recent Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) and the formal launch of ATscale, a new global partnership accelerating access to assistive technology (including eyeglasses), the time is now ideal for this position to take Our Children’s Vision forward in the UK and Ireland (and later in Northern Europe) to muster further support.
The Campaign Manager will develop an Advocacy and Campaign strategy and plan together with OCV partners. They will advocate for the prioritisation of resources for school health initiatives globally that deliver eye care services to children and for services to reach out to school children. They will also advocate for Children’s Eye Health to be integrated into School Health programmes and education systems, particularly in lower and lower middle-income countries. They will raise the profile of the Campaign and VAO’s programmes. Promote the use of the Standard School Eye Health Guidelines, recruit more Campaign Partners and support partner’s international campaigns to integrate children’s eye health. They will also connect partners to form innovative inter-sectoral partnerships to meet the goal and objectives of the Campaign.
