Experienced DB / DC Pensions Administrator - Redditch-£22,000 - £26,000 DOE

Beat the traffic, take the stress out of your commute! Based in a rural location this is an exciting opportunity for an experienced DB / DC pensions administrator to join a successful and growing team.

Recruit UK are working with a highly successful pension consultants and actuaries operation who are looking to grow their West Midlands hub. Their principal business activities are providing a boutique service to Trustees and Employers which includes corporate pension consultancy, investment consultancy, scheme administration and actuarial services.

Their focus is very much on the provision of a personal and professional service tailored specifically to meet each client's particular needs.

As an established business set up in Bristol nearly 30 years ago my client took the decision 10 years ago to open a second hub in a beautiful rural location to the South West of Birmingham. This is currently a small team of 7 employees who benefit from being part of a larger organisation while maintaining a close knit supportive team feel to their working environment.

They are looking to employ a well-motivated, enthusiastic and capable pensions administrator who will thrive within their challenging, but friendly and flexible working environment. All of their staff are encouraged to enhance their skills, progress in their career and develop a professional and enthusiastic attitude when working for them. This ensures that they provide all of their clients with the highest level of professional service, whilst offering a personal approach that reflects their own circumstances, requirements and objectives.

My client aims to attract and retain individuals who have a variety of skills, background and experience and are committed to ensuring the fair and equal treatment of all of our employees and job applicants.
