Would you like to be a Trustee?

24 Sep 2013

We are currently looking for a scheme member to join the board and become a trustee director of UMSS Ltd, the trustee company.

UMSS Ltd directors have overall responsibility for the management of UMSS and investment of the assets.

There are nine directors of UMSS Ltd, five who are nominated by the University (University Nominated Directors), three who are selected by UMSS members according to defined staff categories and one by UMSS pensioners (Member Nominated Directors or MNDs).

The current term of office for the Member Nominated Director for Technical and related staff, will end on 20 October 2013.  Nominations are invited for this vacancy for a 3 year appointment.

If you wish to stand as an MND, you must:

  • have been a member of UMSS for at least 1 year, and
  • on an official Nomination Form obtain 20 signatures from UMSS members within your staff category

The existing MND, Peter Leigh, is eligible to stand for re-election. If one valid nomination only is received, the nominee will be automatically appointed as an MND.  If more than one valid nomination is received an election will be held.

The role of a trustee is both interesting and rewarding and full training would be provided.
