Our client is keeping an open mind about the type of background a candidate will have to fill this contract. Pensions and Clerical, Insurance and Clerical, Financial Services and Clerical… are you seeing a pattern here, but you must at the minimum understand a little about what pensions are and how they operate, and also have some prior office experience. This role is a mix of exciting pensions administration work (where some guidance and training can be given if you have the aforementioned), and not quite so exciting (but massively helpful to your team) duties around the office.
This role will entail day-to-day clerical tasks like opening, logging and filing post, scanning and/or returning original documents, e.g. certificates to scheme members, and all round general record maintenance, including bank changes, address updates and power of attorney.
Anyone who has done a little occupational pensions administration work will find this role very easy and prove very suitable. Defined Contribution or Defined Benefit scheme experience are both helpful, as you will deal with pension scheme administration work like Transfers in and Transfers out, liaising with and providing information to the DWP, and contacting members via email about their scheme.
If you do not have some understanding of pensions please do not apply, this is not an administration only role. It is a role for someone who wants to deal with pensions administration work and progress in this area but in the short-term is happy to also deal with general office duties whilst they do the ground work of pensions administration provision.
