Trustee - The Church of England Pensions Board
Recruiter: The Church of England Pensions Board
Posted: 16 Apr 2020
Closes: 08 May 2020
Job Function: Trustees
The Church of England Pensions Board administers pensions for over 40,000 people working for more than 700 employers and provides housing for over 2500 retired clergy and their dependants. Pensions and charitable funds under investment total in excess of £2.8bn.
We are now seeking a new trustee to help us deliver retirement services for those who have served or worked for the Church. 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.
With recent experience as a trustee or as a non-executive board member, you will demonstrate a proven ability to help shape strategy and ensure robust governance arrangements, gained in a complex organisation. You will have the intellectual rigour, relationship skills and political sensitivity to be credible and influential within a diverse trustee board and with all our key stakeholders and will bring outstanding communication and interpersonal skills. Prior experience within pensions or housing would be advantageous as would a professional background in IT/Cyber security project management.
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 disabled people are underrepresented within the Board’s membership and we would like to redress this.
