The Role

As a Calculations Implementation Consultant, you’ll be a key member of Aquila Heywood’s project delivery team, effectively managing and delivering work packages for an exciting new customer.

You, with the team around you, will deliver configuration of our in-house developed and award-winning software, Altair, which our customers use to administer some of the UK’s largest pension schemes.

This is a varied role with a fantastic mix between technical and consultancy skills. You will implement a range of different solutions, each with their own specific requirements - ranging from routines that help customers to calculate their members’ benefits, programs for loading and validating data, to automated reports to help customers manage and monitor their service. You will work on the whole lifecycle implementation from gathering requirements, configuration, to delivery and post implementation support.

Our culture nurtures continuous improvement and you will be able to put your own footprint on where we are going next and what tools and processes, we should make use of in the future.

  • About Us

    Aquila Heywood combines a passion for software with Agile methodology to create modern software solutions for businesses, pension providers and third parties that help transform how their members manage their lifelong financial journeys.

    Working for an expanding established market leader you will have a real voice to influence our evolution. Continued learning and progression is ingrained in our daily life, encouraged through a variety of ways from e-learning subscriptions and a monthly down-tools day (“Hive Day”) and communities of practice for learning and experimentation. Our open culture encourages wide participation and innovation. We also reward ourselves with regular socials, organised by our people. Socials are of course remotely for the time being, but we do have a fiercely competitive online pub quiz, games nights and much more!

    We are very fortunate at Aquila Heywood to have grown our business during the global pandemic, remotely on-boarding over 50 (and counting) new recruits in the last 12 months.

    We are committed to a hybrid working model. We have empowered our people to determine if working from home or from the office, under the current safety provisions set out by official guidelines, suits them best; giving us all greater flexibility during this challenging time.
