Growth Plan Employer Committee

The Growth Plan Employer Committee (EC) is nominated by employers within the Plan to act as their representative for consultation with the Trustee. EC responsibilities cover four main areas of activity: scheme funding, investment strategy, scheme stewardship and scheme benefits.

Typically, the EC meets twice a year, but will meet more often in a valuation year.

The EC is made up of 15 members nominated and elected by participating employers. 

  • Simon Smart (Chair) Benenden School 
  • Rona Betts Aster Group
  • Steve Cochrane Save the Children
  • Clare Elliott Redmaids High School​
  • Tanya Hill Oxfam
  • William Howarth YHA
  • Jenny Jenkinson Hull Community & Voluntary Services
  • Karen MacLaughlin VSO
  • Iain Smith British Red Cross​
  • Peter Waugh North Star Housing
  • Jan Wilkinson CAFOD
  • 4 vacancies

An election will take place early in 2022; nominations will be invited via an email to employers in late January/early February 2022.

The Growth Plan Employer Relationship Manager and Committee Secretary from TPT attend EC meetings. Representatives from TPT’s Trustee Services, Covenant and Investment teams or Executive Board may also attend depending on the topics to be discussed.
