Pensions Senior Manager/ Manager, PMC, London
The Pensions Management Consulting group in PwC works with clients to establish and maintain effective pension scheme governance processes and administration services. Pension services exist in an ever changing and challenging environment. Against a backdrop of legislative change, regulatory requirements and increasing pressure on company balance sheets, the governance and administration of these arrangements has had to adapt as Trustees and sponsoring employers seek to control costs and operational risks.
Working as part of the broader Top Tier Pensions practice, the Pensions Management Consulting (PMC) group is a client facing team with deep specialist skills and expertise over the spectrum of pensions change projects including outsourcing, administration contract reviews, target operating model design, software selection and implementation, data analysis, process re-engineering, implementing operational change, governance and risk management, and benchmarking. The team are either Associates of the Pensions Management Institute or are actively studying towards it.
We have recently worked with some of the biggest names in industry in the private sector as well as playing an instrumental role in the development of pension services in the public sector. In the private sector, we've been engaged by a number of high profile clients to help them deal with legislative requirements such as compliance with workplace pension reforms (automatic enrolment), to achieve increased levels of efficiency and cost saving and to effectively communicate pensions change and liability management exercises to scheme members.
