Blind Veterans UK helps vision-impaired ex-Service men and women of every generation rebuild their lives after sight loss. Since 1915, we’ve provided rehabilitation, training, practical advice and emotional support to tens of thousands of blind veterans.

We’re looking for a capable, professional Administrator; a confident communicator and team player with a flexible attitude and positive approach.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Administrator with good knowledge and experience in the facilities, property, or construction industry.

In December 2021 it was announced that Blind Veterans UK will be moving from our iconic but now unsuitable building in Brighton along the coast to our new home in Rustington, West Sussex.

This high-profile project will see a complete refurbishment of the new site and along with moving our residents and staff once completed.

This role will provide a full administrative support to the Facilities Manager who leads on this project and to the wider design team. With an eye for detail and a proactive approach you’ll be at the heart of creating and coordinating work schedules and planners, take meeting minutes, organise meetings and be confident in dealing with every kind of internal and external stakeholder.

This post is subject to enhanced disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly CRB).

Benefits include free life assurance, generous pension scheme, employee assistance programme and an excellent working environment.

*Please note that this role is currently based in our Brighton Centre but will be based in our exciting new centre in Rustington (currently planned to be opened later this year). Applicants will need to be able to commute to Rustington once the move has taken place.
