Pensions and Retirement Officer

The post holder will act as secretary to the Pension Fund Trustees, handle a range of administrative tasks for the Pension Fund, manage the Church’s portfolio of retirement housing and oversee the provision of services by a range of external service providers. The post also includes acting as secretary to the Church’s Investment Committee and Ethical Investment Advisory Group.

The post holder will demonstrate a high level of administrative skills, an ability to work on their own initiative and have a general understanding of issues involved in pensions administration and property oversight.

You will be part of a national team based at the General Synod Office in Edinburgh reporting to the Chair of the Pension Fund Trustees for pensions matters, and the Secretary General and Treasurer for other areas of activity.

Benefits: Some flexible, remote working; non-contributory final salary pension scheme.
