Job Description

 The Kennedy Trust for Rheumatology Research is a long-established and successful charity which funds medical research into rheumatoid arthritis and related diseases. For the past 15 years it has funded a substantial grant programme to the Kennedy Institute for Rheumatology (now part of Oxford University) through royalty income received from patents owned by the Trust. This income will cease shortly and in future the Trust will rely solely on its substantial investment portfolio which is overseen, on behalf of the Trustees, by the Finance Committee and managed by professional advisers.

The Trust is seeking to strengthen its Finance Committee by the addition of a new member (who it is planned will become a Trustee) with experience of financial management and oversight at a senior level.  Four Finance Committee and four Trustee Meetings are held each year, normally in Central London, in the early evening.

Details of the Trust and the Institute can be found on their respective websites: www.kennedytrust.org
