Work for us
Interested in joining us? We have a small team of staff, working at home, at one of our offices in Devizes, Cheltenham and Bristol, in our shops, and out in the community.
Thank you for your interest in working for us, we currently have the following roles available.
If either role isn’t right for you, please consider our volunteer vacancies. We have roles to fit all skills, and volunteering with us can help you gain great work experience for future paid roles.
Insight Gloucestershire exists to reduce the impact of sight loss, supporting blind and partially sighted people across the county to lead independent lives and to secure equal access to services.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated self-starter to join our team and take the lead on all administrative and office functions within our Cheltenham office.
The role will manage our admin systems and suppliers, perform basic bookkeeping functions on our online finance system, coordinate mailings to clients and support the production of external communications for the charity.
Although a small team of 5 in Cheltenham, we have recently joined forces with two other local sight loss charities, Sight Support West of England and Wiltshire Sight to develop a joined-up and comprehensive service across the local area. This joint working arrangement enables us to share workload across the three organisations, creating efficiencies and sharing costs.
Although based locally, the postholder will operate as part of a wider admin team working across the three organisations. This is a great opportunity for the right individual to add real value to a small but ambitious charity at a time of significant redevelopment and modernization.

Insight Gloucestershire is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and welcome applications from all backgrounds. As a sight loss charity, we particularly encourage applicants who are visually impaired to apply.
To apply for this post please send a CV and a covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a cover letter explaining why this job appeals to you, and how your skills and experience meet the criteria in the job specification. Applications without cover letters will not be considered. Please title your email ‘Application for Office Coordinator’.
Closing Date: Sunday 7th January. However, if we have good early applicants for the role we may close the recruitment early and hold interviews in December.
