Cambridge Trusts


Applications are invited for the part-time post of Investments Officer in the offices of the Cambridge Trusts. The person appointed will formally be on the staff of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust. The post will become vacant from 1 May 2004, but it is hoped that the person appointed could start not later than 1 April 2004 to allow for a short period of induction by the outgoing Investments Officer.

The Cambridge Trusts offer awards for study at the University to applicants from overseas and the European Union.

The principal duties of the post are to assist the Treasurer and Deputy Treasurer by undertaking accounting tasks related to the substantial investments of the Trusts and to the income from those investments. Duties include obtaining monthly portfolio valuations, arranging meetings of the Investment Committees of the Trusts and taking action on their decisions, ensuring the correct transfers of investment and other income to the accounts of the Trusts, preparing trial balances for audit purposes, and providing accounting support to the Accounts Administrator as required.

Experience of book-keeping and computerized accounting is essential. Experience with the Cambridge University Financial System and with the Sage accounting system used by the Trusts would be an advantage. Any necessary training will be given.

The person appointed will be expected to work the equivalent of about three days a week, by negotiation. Annual salary, which will be commensurate with skills and experience, is likely to be pro rata within the range of £26,000 to £31,000 a year for a full-time appointment.

Further particulars of the appointment may be obtained from Mrs Sue Osterfield, Cambridge Trusts, Trinity College, Cambridge, CB2 1TQ (tel. 01223 327308). Applications should be sent to the Director of the Trusts and should include an up to date curriculum vitae and the names of two referees. The closing date for applications is 21 February.
