About us

More than half the UK working population rely on The Pensions Regulator (TPR) to regulate their retirement savings. With a career at TPR, you’ll be joining an organisation that will impact on millions of lives for decades to come.

Everyone at TPR plays an important role in helping to keep more than £2trn of savings safe. We’re committed to bringing people into TPR who are ready to make a difference and put UK savers at the heart of what we do.

It is important to us that TPR remains a great place to work. We do all we can to help our people reach their full potential with learning, secondment, and development opportunities. We put our 900+ employees first, supporting flexible working and offer a diverse, lively, and inclusive environment. This includes our Disability Network, Family Network, LGBT+ Network (Proud), Minority Ethnic (ME) Network and Women’s Network, which offer spaces to connect.

Our new corporate strategy outlines a bold and challenging vision of how pensions regulation should evolve to keep pace with a change in the scale and nature of the industry. We are at the start of that journey. Join us to find out what part you can play.

We operate a hybrid working model, subject to government guidelines, where regular attendance in our Brighton office is required. Attendance in the office is team and role dependent.


• We’re looking for a Specialist to be responsible for the case management and delivery of our regulatory and criminal enforcement cases. The successful candidate will take referrals from our Enforcement Investigations team and will then be responsible for the case from the commencement of formal legal proceedings until their conclusion, drawing on a range of internal or external expert advisers as necessary.
• This will involve leading a team of advisers through (i) our own regulatory enforcement process (potentially taking the case as far as the Upper Tribunal and Court of Appeal); and/or (ii) issuing summonses and undertaking prosecutions in the magistrates' and Crown courts for a broad range of criminal offences.
• Candidates should therefore have experience of regulatory or civil proceedings as a part (or leader) of a multi-disciplinary team; and/or experience of conducting criminal prosecutions in the Magistrates/Crown Court.
• We are looking for an individual that will be willing to support the work we do across the Enforcement directorate. This includes working in the Proceedings team but also in the Investigations team, when necessary.
