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’re equivalent in size to a top 5 UK pension scheme and have developed a highly sophisticated, best-in-class investment strategy. Our culture combines private sector standards with a public service ethos.

We are looking for a Fund Accountant to join the team and be responsible for contributing towards all financial accounting and control aspects of the PPFs investment portfolios.

The position will be liaising with multiple areas inside and outside of the organisation, from our own investment team through to the Custodian and Fund Managers.  Responsibilities will include the reconciliation and administration of investment portfolios on a daily basis, administer cash payment, review fund manager expenses and investigate and analyse daily performance reporting queries.

Our Ideal applicant will be a Qualified or Finalist Accountant (ACA, ACCA, CIMA or equivalent) with demonstrable experience gained working within an investment manager or investment bank environment, dealing with various investment types. Experience of investment accounting packages along with strong IT skills to develop models and reports is essential, along with strong analytical skills.

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.
