From 1 November 2022 there will be three vacancies when the term of office for the existing MNTDs expires.
Although the current MNTDs are putting themselves forward for reselection, you have the opportunity to nominate yourself for selection.
Each candidate requires a nomination from at least one other member of the Plan. If you wish to nominate yourself, please complete the online Trustee Nomination Form by 1 July 2022.
In addition to completing the nomination form, you must also complete a biography and selection statement.
This should include the following
The Trustee will follow the Pensions Regulator’s principles of proportionality, fairness and transparency when carrying out the nomination and selection of MNTDs.
The Trustee’s procedures for selecting MNTDs are as follows:
MNTDs will hold office for three years. At the end of the term, MNTDs will be allowed to offer themselves for re-selection.
However, where an MNTD is appointed to fill a vacancy due to a post not being filled at a previous selection process, the new MNTD will serve until the term of office of that position would have expired had the vacancy been filled in the original selection process.
The Pensions Regulator’s Code of Practice will be complied with at all times and in particular, to ensure that the Main Board has at least one-third of its number comprising of MNTDs.
Individuals will lose their role as MNTDs before the end of their three year term of office if:
If an individual ceases to be an MNTD and a vacancy arises mid-term, selection of a replacement MNTD will be run at the next selection process. A selection process may be run earlier if the Trustee Directors decide or a replacement MNTD may be selected from applicants kept on file from the previous selection process.
