About the role

This role is based within our "ongoing" pension administration team so we will expect you to have considerable experience administering Defined Benefit pensions. You will be responsible for making sure that customers' pensions are accurately maintained and services and this will involve checking the work of less experienced members of staff as well as performing manual calculations.  We're looking for somebody who will embrace our Barnett Waddingham values and who can hit the ground running.
