Grade and Salary: In the range of £70-75k, according to experience.
Location: All Souls College, Oxford
Reporting to: Domestic Bursar
Contract Type: Permanent
Closing Date: 30 March 2023
All Souls is funded through its £525m endowment which is invested in a range of investment funds and directly owned UK property. The endowment is run on a total return basis. The College operates a Sustainable Income Rule under which an agreed percentage of the average value of the Endowment is transferred annually to fund the College’s day-to-day operations. Annual expenditure amounts to around £10m, which largely comprises academic and other staff, running costs of the historic buildings and an active catering function.
Reporting to the Domestic Bursar, the College Accountant is a senior member of the College’s operational team with overall responsibility for both the day-to-day financial administration and financial planning of the College, the College staff pension scheme (a scheme closed to new joiners) and subsidiary companies. The College Accountant also works closely with both the Warden, including on governance matters, and the Estates Bursar, on the management of the College’s property and investments. As the Bursary is a small department this role includes ‘hands on’ detailed work.
