Challenging, varied and stretching…..

Joining the Church of England Pensions Board will be all three…Steeped in history and international significance, The Church of England, through its staff and volunteers have been serving communities for centuries, whilst the Pensions Board has been providing pensions and housing those who have retired from that service for nearly 100 years.

The Church of England Pensions Board is seeking a trustee with significant social housing experience at a senior level to help us deliver retirement services for those who have worked for or served the Church of England.

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 19 other trustees and with the Executive Team to ensure that the best interests of our customers are met and secure. Out 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 operational housing 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.

If you are interested in finding our more contact Mary Hope on 07948978804 or 020 3434 0990.
