APPOINTMENT OF CHURCH COMMISSIONERS The Archbishops and The Crown wish to appoint up to three individuals to serve as Church Commissioners and members of the Church Commissioners Assets Committee. The Church Commissioners hold investments valued at some £10.1 billion, which include a wide range of asset classes including UK and overseas securities, commercial, residential and rural property. The purposes of the fund are to meet the cost of clergy pensions earned in service before 1998 and to provide sustainable financial support for parishes, bishops, cathedrals and other ministries of the Church of England. Owing to imminent vacancies, the Archbishops/ Crown wish to appoint three Church Commissioners, at least two of whom will also be expected to serve on the Commissioners Assets Committee. Given the Committee s current assets and skills mix, expertise is sought in either securities (in particular broad asset owner/institutional investor experience, or experience in alternative investment strategies), property (in particular housing), or up-to-date experience in risk management. Strong ethical and responsible investing credentials are also highly relevant. The successful candidates must a) be a member of the Church of England or of a church which subscribes to the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, and b) support and be passionate about the charitable objects of the Church Commissioners to support the mission and ministry of the Church of England. The Church of England is for everyone and we want our Board and Committees to reflect the diversity of the community the Church serves across the whole country. As part of this commitment we encourage applications from individuals regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and cultural or social background. The Assets Committee meets for half a day about four times a year (and additionally there are further meetings attended by some members focused on certain asset classes) and the Board meets for half a day up to 5 times a year, usually in London but at least once a year in other locations (remote meeting technology is also extensively used), including the Annual General Meeting . This post is not remunerated but all reasonable travel costs and other disbursements are reimbursed. The term of the appointment is expected be for an initial period of 5 years with the possibility of renewal. Partners, directors, consultants, associates or employees of the Commissioners appointed auditors (Grant Thornton) or Actuaries (Hymans Robertson) are not eligible for appointment to this post.
