Commercial Services Assistant Apprentice
£23,000 per annum
Contract Type: Permanent
Position Type: Full Time

Hello, we’re the Pension Protection Fund. We protect millions of people in the UK who belong to defined benefit pension schemes. Our members rely on us to look after their pensions if their employers collapse and the pension schemes cannot afford to pay what they promised.

We have a new apprenticeship opportunity to join our Commercial Services team on a 30 month apprenticeship programme. You will have an opportunity to support the day-to-day activities in our busy Commercial Services team.

Within this apprenticeship you can expect to learn and contribute to commercial best practice through policies, processes and procedures. This can include tasks such as responding to internal and external queries, supporting system workflows as well as identifying areas of improvement, generating supplier reports and preparing for and supporting team meetings.

Our ideal applicant will have a passion to forge a career in commercial services, utilising your communication and numerical skills you have cultivated in your life to-date. You will have a team oriented approach with a curiosity to grasp concepts quickly, ensuring a focus on the wider team and business stakeholders. Ideally you will have a general understanding (via work experience or other) of working in an office environment.  

You will be completing a Level 3 Procurement and Supply programme which will consist of time away from the day job with our partnered education provider. Should you hold a higher qualification or degree in a discipline related to Commercial Services/Procurement/Supply Chain, then you may not be eligible to qualify for this apprenticeship programme.

Sound like you? Apply now.

In return for your skills, experience and commitment we’ll give you a challenging role within a business where you’ll get the support you need to develop your career.

You’ll also get an outstanding rewards package which includes a generous pension scheme, private medical insurance, health cash plan, critical illness insurance, volunteering leave, holiday trading and a discretionary bonus scheme.

We’ll also give you lots of opportunities for personal development and skills training.

Our Croydon office is just across the road from East Croydon station, which is around 15 minutes from Victoria or London Bridge, 10 minutes from Clapham Junction or half an hour from St Pancras.

We are a Disability Confident Leader, the highest accreditation under the Disability Confident Scheme. If you have a disability and meet the essential criteria for this role you will be guaranteed an interview.

We embrace diverse talent welcoming people with different beliefs, backgrounds and ways of working, and we aim to create an environment in which everyone can be themselves.

We are a flexible organisation and welcome the opportunity to talk about what arrangements may work best for you.

No agencies please.
