Trainee Pensions Administrator

This is a 12 month fixed term contract.

The Surrey Pensions Administration Service is going through a very exciting phase of a Service Transformation whereby through a programme of works including a series of projects, continuous improvements, automation and people development, we will deliver a more modern and digital service, with more efficient systems and processes to support our vision of being ‘The outstanding provider of exceptional LGPS administration’. 

The service improvement programme will be looking to deliver the following high-level outcomes:

  • Intuitive digital self-service of pension processes
  • Increased automation of transactional processes
  • A single trusted source of accurate pension data for improved decision making

To deliver these outcomes, a service improvement plan has been designed with 5 major work streams:

  • Digital Platform
  • Data Excellence
  • Operational Efficiency
  • Customer Engagement
  • Expert People

To achieve success within these work streams, we are looking to expand the size of our teams within our administration areas.

We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to join our team. This is a truly unique opportunity to join a ground-breaking organisation that can offer you the chance to grow and develop your career within a forward-thinking team.

You will provide efficient and customer focused administration to the Local Government Pension Scheme for the employees of local authority organisations for which Business Operations provides a service. This will include our partnerships with county Councils as well as London Boroughs.

Ideally you will have some experience in pensions – but what’s more important is that you enjoy working with figures and have a strong commitment to customer service. You will have excellent IT skills and could be given projects to work on in connection with our computerised pension administration system.

  • IT skills
  • Maths and English GCSE or equivalent

In this role you will enjoy the challenge of working in a busy team, have the ability to work flexibly and be able to prioritise workloads to meet challenging deadlines. 

For our part we will provide staff with an open environment where they feel confident about raising ideas and taking part in shaping our culture and celebrating our success.
