Streamlining Discretions

15 November 2020

At any one time, a number of our staff are seconded to in-house pensions teams to add interim support, cover maternity or long-term sick leave, or to assist with streamlining departments or “one off” projects such as IDRP backlogs.

Our recruitment policy ensures that our staff come from a wide variety of backgrounds including former Pensions Managers, Lawyers, Investment specialists, Actuaries, Pensions Administration experts and independent Trustees. This ensures that whatever your needs, we have someone who fits the bill.

Our Service

  • Experienced “plug and play” support when and where you need it
  • Fixed term or rolling contract
  • Based in your offices or working remotely (your choice) working the same hours as the “in-house“ team on a fully confidential basis.

Case Study 1:

An existing client was looking to recruit an in-house pensions administrator but was struggling to identify a preferred candidate. We placed one of their Assistant Trustee Executives with the scheme at their central London head office. The placement was on a two-day a week basis for an initial three-month period, with a rolling monthly contract thereafter. Our placement had previously spent four years working for a large outsourced pensions administration firm and was experienced in every aspect of the pension administrative role. The placement lasted for four months.

Case Study 2:

A new client required a mixture of standard outsourced Trustee support for meeting cycles (which was provided by an Inside Pensions team from our St Albans offices), coupled with an in-house presence for ad hoc projects and periods of high activity. To accommodate their requirements, one of our Senior Trustee Executives was based at the client’s premises for one day a week, with additional members of the team brought in as and when required. This set up allowed the client additional experienced in-house headcount when required, with the ability to flex down during quieter periods, without the need to recruit a permanent in-house resource.

This contract is ongoing and has been in place since Q4 2018.
