Chief Investment Officer – Camden Community Wealth Fund

Salary: c.£100,000 plus benefits

Location: London King’s Cross

Closing Date: Midnight 15 October

Camden is building somewhere everyone can thrive by making our borough the best place to live, work, study and visit. Because we’re not just home to one of the UK’s fastest growing economies, we’re home to the most important conversations happening today. Through our mission-led approach, we’re making radical social change a reality so that nobody gets left behind. Here’s where you can help decide a better future for us all.

The Community Wealth Fund is a mission-driven social impact investment fund that will invest in Camden organisations, businesses and people to drive value for Camden’s people and change the investment and funding market for the better. With an initial capitalisation of £30m and four core missions that cover food poverty and sustainability, diversity in positions of power, health and sustainability of estates, and opportunities for young people, the Fund is an ambitious and bold intervention in our economy that places citizen involvement and decision-making at its core.

The Chief Investment Officer will be critical to transforming the current approved design into reality. This is a new role that will lead all aspects of the Wealth Fund, including the set-up, beta testing and launch; sourcing of investment opportunities; leading and driving relationships with the private sector to secure partnership and co-investment opportunities; and creating and leading a new Investment Team and associated commissioned services for Camden to deliver a viable fund ready for operation in late 2024.

You will lead the strategic approach to the Fund, developing the assurance, governance and evaluation of products needed to make it a success, and have extensive experience and knowledge of investments across multiple asset classes, including an understanding of debt and equity products and grant funding as well as in depth knowledge of investment funds and a commitment to Camden’s values.
