About the Opportunity
The Hymans Robertson Foundation was established in 2016 to provide oversight and direction to Hymans Robertson’s charitable work in the field of financial literacy. The Foundation was registered as a charity in England & Wales (1168951) and Scotland (SC046931) the following year - marking the beginning of an exciting new era in the firm’s commitment to the greater good of society.
The original idea behind setting up the Foundation was to make a real difference to the lives of disadvantaged young people by helping to improve their financial literacy. The financial literacy ambition remains a key component of the Foundation’s objectives and the work in this area is very active through the Hymans Robertson Financial Footsteps Programme.
In addition, over the last year, the Foundation’s remit has evolved to encompass full oversight of the portion of Hymans Robertson’s profits which are allocated to charitable activities (typically in excess of £200k per year). The key reason for making this change was to ensure effective use of these funds for the benefit of our target groups in society.
The Foundation has broad charitable objectives (as defined in our registration). These are:
1.The advancement of education;
2.The relief of those in need, by reason of youth, age, ill health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage;
3.The advancement of health or the saving of lives.
In practice this charitable spending is organised into three strands:
·Financial Literacy and Employability– Partnering with a small number of charities, we support the delivery of focused programmes with the goal of helping young people (particularly those with less advantages) to build confidence and enhance their opportunities for the future.
·Local Community Support– each Hymans Robertson office actively supports its local communitythrough volunteering and fundraising projects. Much of this work is co-ordinated by Helping Hands groups in partnership with local charities.
·Matched Giving– Hymans Robertson employees are supported in their payroll giving and fundraising efforts for charities of importance to them.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic, capable CEO to lead all aspects of our strategy and operation and the Foundation’s continued growth.

This role is perfect for someone who thrives on working collaboratively and enjoys making a difference in the lives of young people.
The successful candidate will have proven leadership and management ability. This will ideally have been honed within the charitable sector as the role involves responsibility for the overall operations of the Foundation, ensuring every aspect is compliant to legal requirements. Familiarity and understanding of charity governance is essential, as is fundraising skill and experience.
We are flexible on hours and expect the time commitment to be the equivalent of one day per week over the year. Our ideal candidate will be based in Scotland, able to access our offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow and with established networks in the charitable sector in place.
Salary: Equivalent of c1 day per week, £10,000pa
