The Dunhill Medical Trust is an independently endowed charity which not only funds some of the very best of the UK’s academic and clinical research into understanding the mechanisms of ageing and treating age-related diseases and frailty; but also supports some community-based organisations with impactful and innovative ideas to enhance the lives of those who need extra support in later life.

The Board of the Trust has three Committees reporting to it, of which the Investment Committee is one.  The Trustees are now seeking up to two new Investment Committee members to help and advise the Trustees and staff in their endeavours.

We particularly welcome applications from candidates with a professional background in one or more of the following areas:

  • as an investment practitioner;
  • developing investment strategies and policies appropriate to charities; (particularly endowed charities), including asset allocation;
  • appointment of investment managers and the administrative aspects of relationships with investment managers;
  • monitoring and assessing the performance of investment managers;
  • the environmental, social and governance aspects of investment.

Applications are invited from across the UK and committee meetings are held quarterly in central London (the time commitment is around 4-6 days per year).

Although the role is unpaid, reasonable expenses will be reimbursed. 

This is a great opportunity for current practitioners to contribute to their continuing professional development in a small, friendly and well-governed organisation which is playing a significant role in improving the health and well-being of an ageing society.

How to apply

Applications in the form of a covering letter of no more than two pages setting out how you meet the needs of the person specification and why you are interested in the role, together with an accompanying CV should be sent by email to the Trust’s Chief Executive, Susan Kay ( by 1st November, 2019 at noon.  We will not be able to consider CVs without a covering letter.
