Are you a Pensions Fund Accountant who figures it would be nice to work part-time, just 2 or 3 days a week and the days of your choice? Or even 1 week on, 1 week off or similar? Or perhaps you would like to be able to work just a few hours each day, to fit around your lifestyle and AM/PM commitments. Our client is very happy to consider a variety of options to suit your needs, as long as you are able to efficiently carry out your responsibilities.

In your new role as the pension fund accountant you will work within a small in-house team of circa 10, who administer 3 legacy Defined Benefit Schemes and have an open Defined Contribution scheme. The company also sponsor a further 3 Defined Benefits Schemes which are currently outsourced with the team having increasing exposure to these arrangements.

Your main duties will be to deal with bank account operation and reconciliation, invoice tracking and approval, cash–flows, quarterly production of Management Accounts, quarterly HMRC accounting for tax preparation, bi-annual production of IAS19 figures, annual preparation and sign-off of Trustee Report and Accounts, and Pension Scheme investment reconciliation, including co-ordination of asset transfers as and when required. You will also deal with the day-to-day management of external pension scheme auditors, and mentor junior members of staff.

You must have previous experience of pension administration and payroll systems and be advanced in Excel and Word. You may also have professional qualifications, or simply be qualified by experience, the latter is absolutely fine to apply for this role. Please get in touch ASAP to hopefully secure your new part-time role that works around you, not you working around work!
