This is an exciting opportunity to join a successful and established membership based organisation and conference business working in the pension industry and offers the chance to use your pensions expertise to help develop our business. We produce over 50 seminars a year for pension funds with 11 membership divisions in the UK, Western Europe and Southern Africa.

  • Develop our database to include additional colleagues at the pension funds

  • Establish regular contact with key clients by phone, e-mail and social media

  • Maintain industry knowledge and research new leads, including job changes, in all markets through ongoing internet and publication research

  • Calling non respondents to our campaigns to confirm interest (project work during quieter periods)
