Audit and Risk Commissioner
Church Commissioners for England

The Church Commissioners hold investments, valued at over £8.6bn at the end of 2019, across a wide range of asset classes including UK and overseas securities, commercial, residential and rural property and alternative strategies.  The fund exists to meet the cost of clergy pensions earned in service before 1998 and to provide a sustainable level of support for parishes, bishops, cathedrals and other purposes of the Church of England.

We are looking for a Church Commissioner who will be a member of the Board of Governors and will also serve on the Commissioners’ Audit & Risk Committee. Given the Board and Committee’s current make-up, our focus is on candidates with strong experience of financial scrutiny. You might have built this within an audit context, or in a senior finance role, and an accountancy qualification is desirable. Candidates will also bring enthusiasm and energy for the full range of activity of the Church Commissioners. You must be a practising Anglican with an empathy for the Church’s mission.

This is an opportunity to be involved with an exciting and innovative organisation, which takes its ethical responsibilities very seriously. You can make a real difference to the Church of England, work with a committed team, and be part of a relational team culture at a time of significant change. We are keen to speak to a wide range of people and to ensure the Commissioners reflect the community we serve, so if you think this might be for you do get in touch for a conversation.

The Audit & Risk Committee meets in London for half a day three times a year and the Board meets, usually in London, for half a day four times a year (although remote participation is sometimes possible), in addition to the Annual General Meeting at Lambeth Palace in June.

This role 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 three 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.
