At Royal Greenwich we we pride ourselves on being a well-managed and well-run authority.

This role is an exciting opportunity for a Pensions Operations Manager, with experience of the Local Government Pension Scheme. Working with the Head of Pension Services you will be responsible for the delivery of a high quality service covering Pension administration and Pensioner Payroll for the Local Government Pension Scheme and Pension administration for the NHS Pension Scheme and the Teacher’s Pension Agency.  The successful applicant will manage Pension Operations on a day-to-day basis and will be a key part of the management team, looking to build on the current foundations and deliver continuous improvements in the Pension Administration service to all stakeholders.

Who we are looking for:

We are keen to hear from experienced pension professionals with a can do attitude who are highly motivated to provide an excellent and proactive service in line with operational deadlines.  You will have a keen interest in looking at opportunities to change processes and develop systems.  Key to this role will be your strong interpersonal and communication skills to direct change and then make it work on an on-going basis.

It is essential that you have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the LGPS and that you are able to provide clear professional information and guidance to scheme stakeholders.  Knowledge of the NHS and teacher’s pension schemes is desirable but not essential. You will have proven experience in managing staff and overseeing staff performance. 

You will need to possess excellent communication skills, effective time management skills, be able to work under pressure, display excellent attention to detail and demonstrate   understanding of data protection and the importance of maintaining confidentiality.

If this sounds like you, we'd love to hear from you. 

We offer a range of staff benefits and are committed to staff development and creating a supportive environment for colleagues to flourish and develop.
