Overview of the Member Nominated Trustee Director (MNTD) vacancy
In 2020 we will be appointing new Trustee Directors to the board of the Siemens Benefits Scheme.
Successful Trustee Directors are people who care about the wellbeing of their employee colleagues and fellow Scheme members. They are progressive and positively focused individuals who have the ability to see the big picture and have Scheme members’ best interests at heart. They are people with a strong sense of professional commitment who are comfortable with the responsibility and accountability and never act purely in their own self-interest.
Each candidate needs to have their nomination supported by five other active members. They also need to explain what makes them suitable to be a MNTD.
What is a Siemens Benefits Scheme MNTD?
A MNTD is part of the Board that has overall control of how the Scheme is managed. MNTDs are part of a group that use their collective skills and experience to ensure the smooth running of the Scheme, acting in the members’ best interest at all times. A MNTD is generally appointed for a period of four years, but can resign from office at any time.
Who can become a MNTD?
Most people over the age of 18 can become Trustee Directors. MNTD applicants need to have their nomination supported by 5 active Scheme members. They will be highly motivated and enthusiastic with at least two years’ membership in the Siemens Benefits Scheme.
Is there a better feeling than knowing your efforts are resulting in the clarity, security and help for your fellow employees in their time of retirement or illness. Plus one day the recipient will be yourself. There are few less satisfying days than Trustee meetings!Clark MacFarlane - Managing Director, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy Ltd / Former Trustee Director
