APPOINTMENT OF WARDEN
ROBINSON COLLEGE, CAMBRIDGE

Robinson College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Cambridge.  As one of the youngest colleges in Cambridge, it is a modern and diverse academic community.  The College prides itself on being an open, innovative, and welcoming environment, comprising around 80 Fellows, some 680 students and about 100 permanent staff.    In 2027, Robinson will celebrate its 50th anniversary and, leading up to this, will conduct a major fundraising campaign, as well as a wide consultation across its community to determine the sort of College it wishes to become over the next half-century.

Robinson is seeking to elect its third Warden who will guide, engage, and inspire the College through the next phase of its development.  The Warden is overall head of the College, with a remit that includes supporting scholarly excellence, ensuring financial strength, nurturing the collegiate community at all levels, overseeing efficient operations, and taking a lead role in fundraising.

Strong candidates will possess notable leadership skills and a track record of excellence and distinction in their particular field or sector. It is likely (though not essential) that they will have successfully led a large, complex organisation, whether in an educational, commercial, professional or charity setting. They should be able to balance the needs and interests of students, fellows and staff. They should possess excellent financial and managerial acumen to oversee the College’s administration. The incoming Warden will be able to develop, communicate and implement a shared strategic vision for Robinson.

For more information, including how to apply, please visit: www.minervasearch.com/robinson.   For an informal discussion, please email robinson@minervasearch.com.    The closing date for applications, which should be in the form of a CV and cover letter emailed to robinson@minervasearch.com, is 2 November 2020.
