Trustee of the Church of England Pensions Board
Recruiter: The Church of England Pensions Board
Salary: Not Specified
Posted: 23 Nov 2017
Closes: 15 Dec 2017
Job Function: Trustees
The Church of England Pensions Board is seeking a trustee with significant investment experience to help us deliver retirement services for those who have served or worked for the Church.
Our services include administering pensions for over 38,000 people working for more than 450 employers, and housing over 2000 retired clergy and their dependants. Pensions and charitable funds under investment total in excess of £2.3bn.
The role involves working with the other trustees and with the Executive Team to ensure that the best interests of our customers are met and secure. Our trustees set and review the purpose and vision of the Board, contribute to its strategy and hold the Executive Team and the Board’s staff responsible for their performance. Trustees also play an active role in our committees.
Our work is complex and subject to legal regulation (including by the Pensions Regulator and the Charity Commission). You will therefore need to be able to get to grips with and assess detailed material and difficult issues across the full range of the Board’s responsibilities, work constructively and collaboratively with a diverse group of trustees and exercise excellent judgement.
You will also be able to demonstrate a proven ability to help shape strategy and ensure robust governance arrangements. You will have the intellectual rigour, relationship skills and political sensitivity to be credible and influential within a diverse board and with all our key stakeholders, and will bring outstanding communication and interpersonal skills. And for this particular appointment, we are seeking candidates with significant investment experience, gained in a relevant organisation.
This is no ordinary trustee role and we are looking for somebody who will share our vision and our values. Currently women, the minority and ethnic communities and people under the age of 45 are underrepresented within the Board’s membership and we would like to redress this.
