Applications are invited for the post of Bursar of Clare Hall. The Bursar is the principal financial officer of the College, with responsibility for the management of its finances, property, and investments, and is head of the College’s non-academic administration. The role includes the management of an outsourced catering service.
Applicants should be of outstanding ability, with established managerial, leadership, and financial experience at a senior level, and with excellent communication skills. The ability to absorb and respond sympathetically to the ethos of a self-governing residential College, and to participate enthusiastically in its corporate life, will be very important. The appointment will be for five years in the first instance and thereafter with eligibility for reappointment every five years to the age of 67. The successful candidate will be elected a Fellow of the College. It is anticipated that the appointment is likely to be for four days a week.
Further particulars may be obtained from the College Secretary, Clare Hall, Cambridge, CB3 9AL (tel. 01223 765652, email firstname.lastname@example.org). Applications, comprising a curriculum vitae and the names of three referees with email addresses, should be submitted by email (email@example.com) and addressed to the President of the College not later than Friday, 19 February 2010. Interviews will take place in the week beginning Monday, 8 March 2010.
Clare Hall values diversity and is committed to equality of opportunity. It has a responsibility to ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK.
In the advertisement published on 13 January 2010 (Reporter, p. 483), the College failed to mention the fact that it is able to advertise this Junior Research Fellowship as a consequence of the generosity of the Cambridge Philosophical Society that has provided all the funding for this post. The College gratefully acknowledges that support.
The Governing Body of Wolfson College has elected Professor Richard J. Evans, FBA, to succeed Dr Gordon Johnson when he retires as President of the College on 30 September 2010.
Professor Evans is Regius Professor of Modern History and Chairman of the Faculty of History in the University of Cambridge, and currently a Fellow of Gonville and Caius College.
