Avon Pension Fund is looking for someone to advise on, and develop, the Fund’s Strategic Investment Policy with a particular focus on Responsible Investment.
You will be able to balance the Fund’s obligation to deliver investment returns and value for money with being able to present an informed view on a number of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues, including climate change. This role might be suited to someone coming from an investments, governance, or projects-based background and with an appreciation for how ESG issues are embedded in financial and investment decision making.
You will be the Fund’s expert in the field of Responsible Investment and work collaboratively with the Funds pooling provider and other stakeholders to communicate and implement policy. The successful candidate will be rewarded with exposure to some of the industry’s leading asset managers, insight from market-leading consultants and will have autonomy to shape the role.
The Council offers a flexible working environment, 25 days annual leave plus bank holidays and membership of the Local Government Pension Scheme. The Investments Team is based in the Civic Centre, Keynsham.
A market supplement will be considered where appropriate.
