1851 Trust – an update

It’s a month since the launch of the 1851 Trust and we thought that we should write a quick update on how things are going.

Most of the work has been focussed on finding our new CEO. The post was advertised at the time of the launch and we were delighted to received over 80 high quality applications from candidates with a broad range of backgrounds; in the private, public and third sectors.

Four outstanding candidates were interviewed on the 6th November, and the panel will report back to the Trustees who we expect to make a decision by the 4th December – an announcement will follow shortly after that. We hope to have the new CEO start early in the New Year, working from our Portsmouth base.

At that point, the Trust will be fully operational and the real work can begin!
