Pension Scheme Administrator
Defined Benefit Scheme Pension Administrator – Case Handler
£18,000 - £25,000 + Benefits
My client is the trustee of a large number of occupational pension schemes, and is based in Nottingham.
The schemes are mainly defined benefit arrangements, but often have a defined contribution element. Most are in the process of being wound up, following the insolvency of the sponsoring company. An increasing proportion of these schemes are being assessed for eligibility for entry into the Pension Protection Fund or the Financial Assistance Scheme. This requires the drafting of, and adherence to, a detailed project plan with strict reporting requirements. A degree of secretarial duties on behalf of the trustees may be required depending upon the specific circumstances of the scheme.
The Case Handler will be responsible for a portfolio of schemes, reporting to a ‘Principal’ who has responsibility for representing the company in its capacity as trustee, or to a Director.
