Pension Fund Policy & Governance Lead

Thousands of people rely on Warwickshire County Council to run their pensions well. For funds to perform, good governance is critical – and that’s where you come in. As our Pension Fund Policy & Governance Lead, you’ll reinforce our high standards and see that pension policy is fit for purpose. In effect, you’ll be a technical specialist, advising senior leaders and staying abreast of the latest legal requirements.

Join us, and you’ll be the guardian of good governance and administration, applying your knowledge and skills in this crucial role. Our subject matter expert, you’ll make sure that statutory, regulatory and organisational requirements are met so colleagues such as the Section 151 Officer can perform their duties. Up-to-date knowledge of pension policy matters will be essential to your success. That means connecting with peers outside the organisation and tracking developments in your field.

Day to day, you’ll be developing plans and policy documents, advising senior managers, elected members and board members. We’ll be looking to you to assist with all aspects of governance of the pensions service, including monitoring arrangements. 

To join us, you’ll need the expertise to perform. We’ll therefore be looking for a relevant qualification in pension fund management (or equivalent) plus an experience of LGPS or DB scheme governance and administration. 

You will also need good communication skills. It’s important that you can plan, develop and present policies and complex technical information and build positive relationships with our pension fund committee and Local Pension Board. In return, we can offer you a pivotal role that has an impact on thousands of lives. It’s a big responsibility, but if you have passion and purpose, it will be just the kind you like. 

If you would like an informal conversation about this role, please contact our advising consultants at Penna: Kelly Ridley on or call 07709 512415
