Finance is right at the top of the agenda here at Surrey. We have a clear vision for our future and solid corporate and financial strategies in place. In line with our financial strategy we want to continue giving the very best service to our employees, our members and, of course, the people of Surrey. This is why we’re putting the ongoing development of our Pension Fund and Treasury function in your hands.
The Surrey Pension Fund won the LGC Fund of the Year award in 2010 and was shortlisted again in 2011. We want to continue this success story and ensure that the management of the Pension Fund continues to develop during a period of significant change for the Local Government Pension Scheme. You will therefore define strategies and policies for the management of the Pension Fund and treasury management functions and lead a directorate-wide change programme to put the policies into action. This will involve leading on risk and governance issues, influencing key stakeholders and integrating with our Pension Fund Administration function. The insight and leadership you provide will prove invaluable and any changes that you make will help to get us in even greater shape for the challenges ahead. You will be a key member of the Finance Leadership Team, reporting directly to the Chief Finance Officer.
Technical expertise is therefore essential. You will need to be CCAB qualified, with a keen understanding of public sector accounting and pension fund management best practice. Treasury management and pension fund investment and governance experience is key, as is a creative and innovative approach to service delivery. You will also need to be great leader with a proven ability to get the very best out of those around you. Too truly shine, you must be highly politically aware – comfortable building relationships and influencing change at every level within, and outside, of the council.
