Board / Charity Trustee member


The Cambridge Theological Federation, formed in 1972, is an ecumenical collaboration between twelve colleges and institutions who teach theology in Cambridge. The member institutions together fund the Federation and through it are able to offer their students access to degrees through Anglia Ruskin University, Durham University and the University of Cambridge.

Members from the twelve institutions appoint a Board who have overall responsibility for ensuring the Federation’s central services are run effectively and meet our obligations to students, the member institutions, partner universities, regulators and other stakeholders. Board members have responsibilities under the Companies Act and the Charity Commission.

We are looking for an individual with financial expertise to join the Board, taking the lead on scrutinising the Federation’s use of resources and providing advice to other Board members to ensure they meet their fiduciary governance responsibilities. The appointed individual will sit on the Resources Committee which receives regular management account reports, reviews the annual accounts, proposes the budget, reviews policies and considers resources issues, including relating to the staff team.

The Board and Resources Committee normally meet once a term and so we are looking for a commitment of approximately six meetings a year, occasionally more if the need arises.

If you are interested in helping the Federation in this way please contact the Chair, Professor John Bell, on either for an informal discussion or to offer yourself for consideration.
