In establishing The Gannochy Trust in 1937, AK Bell brought benefits to Perthshire and Scotland which are maintained to this day. Properties transferred to the Trust and still managed by it were the Gannochy housing estate and substantial other grounds for community and recreational purposes. The Trust’s funds included shares in the Bell’s Whisky Company, which were latterly invested prudently over a wide spectrum of investments and have grown significantly over the years. In 1967, the geographic footprint of the Trust’s donations was widened and now encompasses the whole of Scotland.
The Trust’s strategic plan supports the objectives that were set out by AK Bell in the Trust Deed. This includes providing affordable, high quality housing, an estate that protects and enhances green spaces and ensures good agricultural husbandry, improving community life through the use of Trust’s assets, grant giving and an efficiently run Trust through people development and management of resources. The Chief Executive works closely with the Trustees to discharge these responsibilities, with the Chief Executive helping develop strategies and being responsible for their implementation and for managing the Trust’s wide range of operations.

He / she will have knowledge and understanding of the environment and sectors that the Trust operates within the region and in Scotland. The successful candidate should also have experience in developing and influencing strategy and policy across a wide range of relevant subjects as well as experience of charitable and community funding.
