The People’s Pension is a leading workplace pension scheme in the UK. Our Scheme has grown rapidly since launch in 2011 and we now provide workplace pension benefits on behalf of over 3.4 million members from over 74,000 employers. We were the first scheme to report on its governance and administration arrangements in accordance with the ICAEW assurance framework for master trusts. In 2015 and each year subsequently, The People’s Pension has achieved the Defaqto 5 Star Rating for auto-enrolment.
We’re now looking to continue the strong governance standards set by our Scheme and are seeking to appoint three Trustee Directors to The People’s Pension Trustee Board on terms varying from 2 to 5 years. These roles will have particular responsibility for administration and digital technology as well as establishing market leading engagement with employers and employees providing a voice at Board level.
You will have relevant knowledge and experience to succeed in this role although this can come from a diverse range of backgrounds. Experience at Board and/or Trustee level is desirable, along with current pensions administration and customer service credentials. Above all we are looking for candidates with the right skill sets and knowledge to produce meaningful results that make a difference.
Candidates will need to have the commitment and diary flexibility to attend special meetings outside the pre-planned annual meeting cycle.
Desirable skills include:
- Self-motivated, disciplined and organised
- Commercially astute and strong awareness of the pensions landscape affecting Master Trusts
- Significant experience of chairing meetings and events
- Credibility at all levels
