The Linbury Trust

Competitive Salary

One of the group of grant-making foundations that are collectively known as The Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts (SFCT), The Linbury Trust was founded in 1973 by Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover KG and his wife, Anya, Lady Sainsbury, CBE, the former ballerina, Anya Linden. Over the intervening 46 years it has made grants totalling more than £150 million to organisations and towards causes across a broad range of categories, including the Arts; Education; Museums and Heritage; Environment; Medical; Social Welfare and Developing Countries. In recent years the three children of Lord and Lady Sainsbury have become increasingly involved in the work of the Linbury Trust. The Trust is now looking for a new Director to lead its considerable portfolio.

As the role will require working closely with Lord and Lady Sainsbury and other trustees who make up the Linbury Board, as well as the Director of SFCT, you must be able to demonstrate your experience of cogent analysis, clear judgement and prudent decision making.  Commercial acumen, competence in financial issues and exemplary communication skills are critical.  In order to establish and maintain strong internal and external links you will be adept at building robust, transparent and productive relationships with a wide range of stakeholders.  Interest in and familiarity with the Trust’s varied fields of grant giving is highly desirable. You will enjoy working in a complex environment and be prepared to work some evenings and weekends when necessary.

We have no preconceived ideas who this leader will be but are clear that the role is far more than a list of qualifications, achievements or networks. For that reason, we want to encourage interest from as wide a range of talented individuals as possible. We particularly welcome applicants from groups which are underrepresented at senior levels in the voluntary sector.
