Bursar

Hughes Hall is looking to appoint a new Bursar to lead a strong team recruited and developed by the current Bursar who is moving with her family away from Cambridge.

The Bursar will be tasked with overseeing the successful and efficient day-to-day running of the College’s financial and operational services as well as motivating and developing all professional services staff. This is a strategic senior leadership role with specific responsibility for finance, estates, HR, IT, legal matters, catering, conferences and accommodation. The Bursar will be responsible for ensuring the estate can accommodate growing student numbers, and for continuing to bring about significant change and improvement in the way the College operates and serves its community of staff and students.  The Bursar is a member of the College’s senior management team, a Governing Body Fellow, and reports to College Council.

The postholder will bring significant management experience including having led a range of support services. Experience of managing the financial and project planning aspects of a capital development programme would be particularly helpful as a major expansion of the College’s estate is planned over the next few years. The successful candidate will enjoy managing people and projects, and engaging with all parts of a community. The Bursar must be a strong and credible advocate for the College within relevant University fora. Excellent organisational and interpersonal skills will be critical, as will a proven ability to make things happen. The appointee will bring a creative, flexible and positive approach to solving problems and leading change. Candidates need not be qualified accountants, but must have a solid understanding of finance.

The Bursar will join a highly committed team of College Officers and will be able to shape the future of the College.
