Your next exciting project will be to manage and deliver the 3 key projects for the company Pension Scheme to agreed statutory deadlines. As the new Pensions Project Manager you will support: 1. The implementation of the Single Code of Practice. 2. The implementation of Pensions Dashboard. 3. The implementation of GMP Equalisation.

You will identify, implement and formalise operational practices, procedures and policies that will underpin the delivery of the 3 key projects.

You will be able to make informed strategic decisions when considering the 3 projects, and will be responsible for pension's operational audit requirements, preparing and keeping accurate budgets in relation to the 3 key projects, and preparing and presenting regular updates of the 3 projects to Trustees and the business. You will already possess pension's project management skills and a good knowledge of pension's legislation and applying this in a practical manner, alongside also using data to determine process improvement. You will have the ability to work in a matrix structure and build effective relationships with senior managers/stakeholders.
