I'm currently assisting my client with the recruitment of a permanent Pensions Manager. You'd be working for a Local Authority in the North East which has a proud tradition of delivering services and stable leadership.
The Council's Pension Fund, part of the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), has a value of £2.8 billion, a total membership of over 53,000 and 114 scheme employers.
The Pensions Manager will be responsible for the development and delivery of the investment strategy for the Council Pension Fund. This is an exciting time for local government pension schemes with the Council Pension Fund now being a member of the Border to Coast Pensions Partnership with eleven other local government pension schemes. The Border to Coast Pensions Partnership will operate the investment funds for the underlying local government pension schemes, to invest into based on their allocation strategy. The Pensions Manager will be expected to work with the Border to Coast Pensions Partnership to maximize returns from the investment strategy, reduce investment costs and control risks.
You will also lead on providing strategic advice, information and support to all Pension Fund employers and to be a key strategic adviser to the Pension Fund Pension Committee and the Local Pension Board.
The Pensions Manager will lead a team which is responsible for the administration of the Council Pension Fund. This role requires good technical knowledge of LGPS administration, effective performance management skills and the need to ensure the best use of IT systems to support the delivery of services.
The prospective candidate would be expected to have significant experience of pension fund management, including investments and administration, preferably at a senior level. The ability to work in an ever changing environment working with partners and senior officers and politicians will be vital.
