Are you a contract pensions specialist at Senior Pensions Administrator level seeking your next role but keen to take on something slightly different? Enhance your CV by the end of the contract? Yes, then how about working for a large in-house scheme during their countdown to buy out! And whereas normally you would be doing the administration calculations, in this role you will be checking them on the pensions department pensions administration system (UPM – don’t worry if you have not used this system, as long as you have used plenty of similar ones). Sound exciting, then read on…

Location of work options:
1. Homeworking for anyone not within daily commuting distance
2. 3 days office long travel time
3. 5 days office living locally

Our client is initially offering a six-month contract, to be reviewed at the end, with potential your services might be needed for 12 months.

Core hours are 8-6pm, so you can work early/late, finish early/late, this contract will be PAYE only via the client’s own payroll, and if you do decide to work in the office 5 or 3 days or to just go in for initial training to collect IT equipment, etc., you will also be entitled to purchase all their lovely products at special staff discounted prices from the staff shop, + have entitlement to various other super benefits.

You do need to be highly experienced in Defined Benefit Pensions Administration, having worked for either an in-house pension administrator and/or a third-party administrator. You need to be able to work on your own initiative, and set to work checking calculations, looking at their breakdown on the system and ensuring they are correct. At the same time, you may be called on to deal with general inquiries from Pensioners to defer by both phone and email. You may also be asked to assist more senior department members with work projects linked, from GMP rectification/equalisation to data cleansing. So, this contract offers a core role, linked to some other add on work and a super opportunity to work on a scheme going to buy out.

If you are ready for a new contract (on company payroll) and fresh challenge with a lovely in-house pension department team please get in touch ASAP.
