This is an exciting time for Wiltshire's Pension Fund. We are looking at the next stage in the Fund's development and as a Board, we are keen to ensure that Wiltshire's excellent reputation and position as an innovator in the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS) is continued and grows in what will be a challenging period.
We have two fantastic opportunities to join our Finance department. We are recruiting a Head of Pensions Administration and Investment Manager.
We are entering an exciting stage for our investment management, although there is a considerable period of transition. You will manage this period, whilst also leading us to securing a sustainable and robust investment strategy in an increasingly complex economic and responsible world.
The roles will also be critical to holding Brunel Pension Partnership (BPP) to account for its targeted performance to ensure the excellent return of the Fund’s investments and reduced fees.
As Investment Manager, you will have considerable experience in managing Funds and Fund Managers and be both innovative and strong in driving an effective investment strategy to fruition.
However, we recognise that just as an effective Fund requires equal strong management of assets and liabilities, our focus cannot be taken off our members and employers and the risks that lie within the ever changing and more complex world of pensions administration. As Head of Pensions Administration, you will be empowered to lead the administration function to deliver an efficient process, develop people, respond to ever changing regulations and most importantly clearly communicate with our 55,000 members and 175 employers.
If you think you have the skills to deliver continuous improvement and you are excited by the challenges our Fund offers, we would be delighted to hear from you.
We empower our people to innovate and collaborate and in order to build stronger communities. We encourage flexibility and promote work-life balance by offering staff the opportunity to mix home working with office working. We trust our people to deliver and work collaboratively to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for our customers. Wiltshire Council is a friendly, welcoming place to work, with a strong team ethic. That’s why we focus on getting the things that matter to our people right – such as flexible working, support for career development and rewards and benefits.
As part of our staff benefits package we offer a 25% discount on rail season tickets, salary sacrifice schemes which save tax and national insurance - including childcare vouchers and cycle to work and a range of discounts with national and local retailers through Wiltshire Rewards.
Over the last decade we have improved our governance and performance to become one of the country’s leading funds.
We are proud of our track record and were a key player in establishing the Brunel Pension Partnership (BPP) that forms the South West of England Investment Pool.
Our aim is to ensure a sustainable and viable fund where assets meet the liabilities, and that members and employers receive an efficient service with clear communication.
