Back to Career Advice forum


Post time10:31 18-04-2013

Strong investment returns are vital to the continuing success of Greater Manchester Pension Fund (GMPF) and it is the strength of these returns which will continue to enable GMPF to offer a high quality pension scheme to its members at a cost which is affordable to its employers. These new posts are designed to provide extra internal resource to play important roles in achieving the necessary strength of returns when prospects are for difficult economic and market conditions over coming years. Experience and professional qualifications relating to investments, accountancy or commercial banking will be a major advantage for both posts, whilst for the Local Investments role a property background will also be relevant. Both posts require incumbents who are sympathetic to the need for a strong compliance culture. 1) Investments Manager (Local Investments) This post will be a key inaugural member of the Fund's new 'Local Investments Team' with responsibilities covering Local Investment (designed to deliver commercial returns and assist in supporting the area), GMPF 'business development', Property Co-ordination and other specific tasks. Initially reporting to Peter Morris (Executive Director of Pensions), you will have the ability and experience to evaluate and progress a wide range of diverse local investment opportunities to fruition. You will be comfortable liaising with local public bodies at a high level and using project management techniques to help deliver tangible outcomes to demanding timescales. 2) Investments Manager (Traditional and Alternative Assets) This is an additional post within the Fund's 'Investments Group' whose remit extends to providing investment strategy advice to the Fund Trustees, overseeing the activity of the Fund's external public market securities managers, and investing in private market pooled vehicles on a national and international basis. You will report to Steven Taylor (Head of Pensions Investments) and will contribute to all areas of the team's work as necessary, although key growth areas for the team are in corporate governance, in expanding the number of external managers and the types of private market opportunities captured, and in offering differentiated investment strategies to individual employers. The role requires a range of relevant experience, strong analytical skills and a thorough approach to due diligence.
