Jesus College


The College wishes to appoint a Senior Bursar to take up his or her duties as soon as possible. The Senior Bursar, who will be elected a Fellow of the College, is responsible to the College Council (and Bursarial Committee) for overall financial strategy. Principal responsibilities include: financial planning and control; investments; long-term fund-raising; overview of the student loans and grant system.

In addition to possessing financial expertise, the Senior Bursar needs to develop a wide-ranging understanding of, and sympathy for, the academic purposes of a College and its role within a University of international repute, in a period of considerable flux. Organizational skills, administrative capacity, and the ability to exercise responsibility and authority within an organization which places a high value on consultation and full discussion with its members at all levels, are of prime importance.

The salary will be up to £42,500 a year (currently subject to review).

Applications should include a full curriculum vitae (including career history, relevant achievements, latest remuneration, correspondence address and, for use with discretion, daytime telephone number) and should be sent in strict confidence to the Master's Secretary, Jesus College, Cambridge, CB5 8BL, fax 01223 339304 (from whom further particulars of the post may be obtained), so as to arrive not later than 6 June 1998.
