Border to Coast Pensions Partnership is an asset manager owned by 11 Local Government Pension Funds (our ‘Partner Funds’) with total assets of £55 billion – making us one of the largest pooled investment funds in the UK.
We are looking for someone to manage our work with policy makers to ensure we understand the regulatory and political environment that may impact our ability to deliver for our Partner Funds. A key element will be to allow us to understand and influence the evolving Responsible Investment reporting requirements, and to manage a coordinated programme of activity and engagement to support our purpose.
We’re looking for someone who has experience in a policy or political environment and who has excellent analytical, writing and advocacy skills. With good communication skills, able to communicate complex policy messages to a range of audiences through a variety of channels, you will have experience of engaging with and advising senior managers and be a team player who can work collaboratively with colleagues from other parts of the business.
A self-starter, who excels in a fast paced and dynamic environment, you will have excellent organisational and leadership abilities and be able to manage multiple workstreams, working effectively under pressure, to deadline and to budget. We’d also like you to have an understanding of asset management and of responsible investment and sustainability issues.
Experience of working in the financial services sector (or another regulated industry) is desirable.
