The Domestic Bursar will be an Official Fellow, a member of the Governing Body and one of the most senior College Officers and will report to the Principal. Their primary responsibility is the operation and efficient (and profitable) running of the facilities and domestic services of the College, which are relied on by Fellows, students, staff, visitors, conference guests and others.

They should be able to manage a large number of diverse problems and get to grips with underlying issues quickly whilst negotiating solutions sensitively. They must have a combination of extensive operational leadership together with a sound commercial outlook balanced by an appreciation of the values and priorities of a college with a strong academic mission. Strong financial, budget and procurement acumen together with experience of contract negotiation are essential requirements of the role.

In return, we can offer a competitive salary (dependent on experience) plus a Housing Allowance, up to 38 days annual leave, private medical insurance, membership of the Senior Common Room entitling the post holder to take meals at Common Table and membership of the Universities Superannuation Scheme.
