By joining our Investment Committee, you will manage our portfolio to generate funding for vital healthcare innovation in the NHS. We fund ground-breaking medical research, state-of-the-art hospital equipment and innovative healthcare projects which the NHS could not otherwise afford.
We provide awards totalling £30m each year, making us a nationally significant healthcare funder. Our funding supports the patients of Barts Health NHS Trust (comprising St Bartholomew’s, The Royal London, Mile End, Whipps Cross, Newham and the Nightingale London Hospitals) with funds providing life-saving patient care and well-being support for staff.
We also fund medical research undertaken at the Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry, part of Queen Mary University London, supporting medical breakthroughs in a wide range of areas including cardiology, trauma, HIV and COVID.
About the role
Our Investment Committee comprises investment experts of different types, whose role is to steward our investment portfolio currently worth about £450m. Their aim is to secure capital value, whilst also generating income and sufficient liquidity that the Charity can maintain grant awards at a significant level each year. Whilst we do also fundraise, our endowment is our primary source of income. We are looking for one or two new Committee members who will not also be Trustees, and therefore the time commitment is approx 2-3 days per year. This makes the role ideal for someone who wants to volunteer at a senior level but has other demands on their time, or who is maybe volunteering at this level for the first time.
You will have investment management experience, being able to interpret investment performance, using market data to make investment recommendations. You will know how to present investment data to non-specialist audiences. You will have developed effective short and longer term financial and investment strategies and have current knowledge of financial regulatory requirements & best practices, with ongoing links to the investment management sector.
We encourage applications from under-represented groups, particularly people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, but also a broad age-range and people living with disabilities. We also welcome applications from people who have not been senior volunteers or non-executives before.
Application is by submitting CV and supporting statement.
Closing date for applications: 11 October 2020
