Partnerships & Commissioning Director
The Single Finance Guidance Body (SFGB) is a newly-created organisation that will replace the three existing providers of government-sponsored financial guidance - the Money Advice Service (MAS), the Pensions Advisory Service (TPAS) and Pension Wise - bringing together the provision of debt guidance, money guidance and pensions guidance to help “Change the Dial” in this country for Money, Debt and Pension guidance. This new, single body will provide an opportunity to deliver a more streamlined service to the public, providing easier access to the information and guidance people need to help them make effective financial decisions throughout their lives.
This new organisation will be a NDPB (Non-Departmental Public Body) and will be overseen by the Chairman (Sir Hector Sants), the Chief Executive (John Govett) and a number of Non-Executive Directors (NEDs) and Executive Directors (EDs). The new body will have five core functions; pensions guidance, money guidance, debt advice, consumer protection and the strategic function - to provide members of the public in England with information and advice on debt, money and pensions. The body will be primarily funded by levies on both the financial services industry and pension schemes. The Department for Work and Pensions will be the sponsor Department for the new body; though the body will also engage with the HM Treasury.
The Partnerships & Commissioning Director will be the outward face of the organisation, engaging with a wide range of stakeholders from the NHS through to Charities and FTSE100 companies. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in shaping new markets, identifying new opportunities and defining new ways of working.
As a member of the Board, you will help develop our overall strategy to achieve our strategic aims across Pensions, Money and Debt guidance and our leadership role in Financial Capability across the UK. The role will support the CEO, COO and Executive team to formulate longer term strategies and new, efficient ways of working that deliver high customer and staff satisfaction levels.
The successful candidate will champion development of Strategic Partnerships and Strategic Commissioning for debt, money and pensions advice and help establish a new Volunteer scheme. You will have extensive leadership experience and a track record of forging strong relationships with a broad range of partners and stakeholders. You will be a strong negotiator with extensive knowledge of commissioning and performance management of contracts to meet contract KPIs. Ideally, you will relish the opportunities to challenge the status quo, shape new markets and drive innovation. You will also possess the gravitas to build strong relationships and represent us at public events. Understanding of the Money, Savings, Pension and/or Debt markets is desirable.
