Pensions Officer (Employer Services)

Are you looking for a new challenge in a varied and interesting role where every case is different?
Are you good at building positive working relationships?

If the answer to these questions is yes, then there may be an exciting opportunity for you in the Pensions Service based at One Angel Square in Northampton.

The Employers Services team is looking for a new Pensions Officer to join a dynamic team delivering professional advice and support to over 500 scheme employers across the Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire Pension Funds.

The Pensions Officers (Employers) are the principal day to day contact for scheme employers, and provide a helpdesk and support service for all employers in both Pension Funds.

The successful candidate will provide support to employers from the start of their relationship with Pensions Service right up to the point that they cease within the Fund.

They will help to facilitate entry to the Local Government Pension Scheme (LGPS), provide advice and support on all public sector pension issues as well as undertake work for risk assessments, valuation of the LGPS Funds and calculation of exit payments for employers ceasing in the LGPS.

There will also be the opportunity to:

* Assist employers with understanding their responsibilities within the LGPS,
* Assist with the organisation of training events, annual forums and other presentations,
* Assist with the production and delivery of general employer communications, including maintenance of the LGPS website.

As well as the relationship management described above, many aspects of the role will involve preparation and manipulation of pensions data, including data validation and extraction in connection with onboarding, covenant monitoring, cessation valuation and cyclical reporting activity. For this reason, the Officers will continuously be working on multiple projects.
