Job Description

Board Vacancy for an Investment Management Advisor


We welcome applications for the position of Trustee (Councillor) from candidates with investment management expertise. The successful candidate will be co-opted as a Trustee and member of the BFSS Finance & Investment Committee.
Applicants for this position should be able to demonstrate skills and experience in one or more of the following areas:
 As a fund manager;
 Developing investment strategies and policies appropriate to charities; (particularly grant giving charities), including asset allocation;
 Monitoring and assessing the performance of investment managers;
 The environmental, social and governance aspects of investment management and the principles of ethical investing.
BFSS is one of the oldest educational charities in the world and is a leader in grant giving to small and medium sized charities focused on addressing educational disadvantage in the UK and around the world. We make annual grants of around £1m per annum to UK based charities. Our income comes mainly from our investment portfolio, which reached over £26 million at the end of 2019. The Society draws income and, as necessary, capital from its investment portfolio to support its grant-giving; it does not at present engage in fund-raising.
It’s an exciting time to be joining us and we’re looking people with the commitment, vision and expertise to contribute to writing the next chapter in our story.
Further information here: https://www.bfss.org.uk  and on the document attached to this notice.

To apply

Applications should be addressed to Dr Joanne Knight, Director of BFSS joanne.knight@bfss.org.uk and should be in the form of a curriculum vitae with a covering letter of no more than two pages outlining your interest in the work of the Society and how you believe you meet the needs of the role.
BFSS recognizes that diversity is essential for excellence and increases the capacity to develop, innovate and grow. We therefore encourage applications from under-represented groups.
