A law graduate of Exeter University, Jonathan has over 30 years’ director level experience.

A former Business Ambassador, working with HRH Prince of Wales at Business in the Community, he created and led the Social Purpose function at Woodford Investment Management from 2014-19. At Woodford, he developed and implemented an energetic £multi-million charitable programme which focussed on core-costs support – “supporting the business of charity” – and developed links with well over 200 charities.

The core cost question triggered Jonathan’s wider interest in the issue of system improvement. Together with Sir Stephen Bubb, he co-founded Charity Futures and served as its first Chair. He has been involved with the Oxford Institute of Charity since its inception and now sits on its Advisory Board.

Jonathan now works as an independent advisor and consultant with a range of commercial and charitable organisations including Oxford University’s Career Service. He also supports a number of organisations in a pro bono capacity.
