Welcome Letter from the Director, Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts

Dear Applicant

Robert Bell

I am delighted that you are considering applying for the role of Director of The Linbury Trust. This is a prestigious role, leading one of the UK’s preeminent funders of the arts, heritage and museums, and its considerable portfolio of overseas, education and social welfare grants.

We are seeking someone with gravitas, intellectual rigour, a good understanding of the work we support, skilled at building strong, productive relationships externally and with colleagues at the other Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts.

You will work closely with Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover KG and his wife, Anya, Lady Sainsbury, CBE, their three children and other trustees who make up the Linbury board, and bring experience, good judgement and sound advice to its decision making and grants management. You will work closely with and report to the Director of the Sainsbury Family Charitable Trusts, and alongside the Director of Finance and Resources.

I hope that your enthusiasm for the role will be reinforced by the attached background information and can I take the opportunity to wish you well if you decide to proceed and make an application.
