Following the ongoing success of the Linden Fellowship program, Josephine (Brazil) Linden ’69, Founder and CEO of Linden Global Strategies based in New York, is again offering the Linden Fellowship to an Old Girl of Kambala during late Semester 2, 2018 or some of Semester 1, 2019.
With an established career as a partner in Private Wealth Management at Goldman Sachs and an Advisor to GSJBWere in Australia, Josephine founded Linden Global Strategies in 2011. Linden Global Strategies is a wealth management advisory firm offering financial planning, investment management and consulting services to an international clientele.
Josephine is a high profile figure in the Finance industry; she serves on public, private and non-profit boards. She is the Chairman of Lands’ End, Director of Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores, a member of the Advance Global Advisory Board, a trustee of the Collegiate School, and financial advisor for the Prince of Wales Foundation amongst others.
Josephine’s close ties to her education at Kambala prompted her to extend a fellowship opportunity and to provide mentoring to Old Girls of Kambala. The fellowship is an invaluable opportunity to get work experience in an internationally-renowned firm in the United States.
Old Girls Lucinda Bradshaw ’07, Claudia Yasukawa ’07, Annie Handmer ’11, Luisa Gidaro ’08, Carolyn Harris ‘10 and Sarah Swan ‘09 have all successfully completed a fellowship and Nicola Borton ’11 commenced with Linden Global Strategies in April 2018.
The Linden Fellowship will be offered to an Old Girl of Kambala who dreams of a career in Finance and who would like to experience working and living in New York City. Linden Global Strategies offers a high degree of flexibility in the timing of the fellowship, the inclusions, the role requirements and the training. It is important that candidates are similarly flexible. The right person for the role will be able to negotiate these aspects when selected as a successful candidate.
The commencement date is flexible, depending on the candidate’s availability. Linden Global Strategies prefers a commitment for three months in order to ensure the best possible experience for the fellow. This role will be nurtured by tremendous amounts of training and mentoring. The intention is that this experience should be mutually beneficial for the candidate as well as for Linden Global Strategies.
The fellowship is unpaid and the candidate will be required to cover airfares, medical, accommodation and living costs while acting as a fellow at Linden Global Strategies.
The work hours will be Monday to Friday, 9am to 6pm. These hours can be negotiated.
