Core Responsibilities:

  • Helping enable the delivery of GMP equalisation projects to meet a high-quality standard of service for clients.
  • Providing technical specialist expertise working collaboratively alongside a client team.
  • Work collaboratively in the preparation of calculations and related advice including checking calculations undertaken by more junior team members.
  • Ability to work independently to proactively resolve complex cases and queries relating to pension scheme specific features stemming from GMP equalisation.
  • Ability to explain and resolve technical matters for the client team.
  • Encouraging effective communication within client teams and technical team to support the delivery of GMP equalisation projects.
