Founded in the 1430s and situated in the heart of Oxford, All Souls is distinct among Oxford colleges for its focus on academic research. It is a thriving academic institution comprised of a distinguished group of Fellows in the Humanities, Law, Social and Natural Sciences, and Mathematics. Its Fellows are involved in teaching and supervision of research at Oxford but there are no undergraduate members of the College. Through its Fellows and otherwise, the College has strong ties to public life.
The College is seeking a new Estates Bursar, who will be responsible for overseeing the College’s investments, which are in both the financial markets and property, and the income from which finances the College’s activities. He or she will become a Fellow and a member of the College’s Governing Body, which determines the strategic direction of the College and maintains it as a world-leading place of education, learning and research. In addition to managing the property and financial investments across the endowment, he or she will be central to the College’s financial planning and operations, and will be actively involved in discussions and collective decisions that will impact the College for the long term.
The Estates Bursar will be, or have been, a senior asset and investment manager with a wide range of experience, an impeccable reputation and an instinctive understanding of financial markets. She or he will bring experience, perspectives and expertise in multiple asset classes, along with a global mindset. Ideally, they will have had both public and private markets experience in senior positions, and they must be intellectually agile, capable of making sound decisions from a strong analytical base, and able to work in collegial fashion with academic colleagues. Experience in property held for income, investment and development potential is desirable.
All Souls College has retained Russell Reynolds Associates to advise on this appointment. For further information about the position and additional details on how to apply, please visit: www.rraresponses.com
