Company Description

Securing pensions over the long term can be a challenge for many businesses.

Our ambition at Legal & General Retirement Institutional (LGRI) is to help companies and pension scheme trustees honour their defined benefit pension promises to their employees.

We're helping companies settle their pension liabilities so they can focus on growing their businesses, as well as helping to support their members' financial security in retirement. And we're investing for the long term to back our pension promises.

In the last 30 years we've written more UK business than any other insurer, and we currently look after more than half a million pension policyholders. We're the UK's longest-serving active bulk annuity provider, and a market-leading, multi-award winning business.

Job Description

We are currently looking for a Senior Transition Manager to join our Transition team here at L&G.

In this role you will take ownership of the end to end scheme implementation and on-boarding of a portfolio of Pension Risk Transfer (PRT) transactions. You will also support the PRT Business Development team in securing and maximising new business opportunities by providing technical expertise with regards to the implementation process and ensuring that milestones within the project plan are achieved in a way that takes into account the fair treatment of all customers.

You will also take responsibility for liaising with trustees, brokers and administrators, to agree a timescale and process for verifying data to ensure that benefits are costed accurately and reflect the legal liabilities being taken on by L&G. This will include establishing and monitoring actions against the agreed timetable and putting remedial actions in place if required. As well as undertaking a Post Implementation Review for each scheme, and meeting with or reporting to the Trustees, their advisers and administrators as appropriate.

You will also maintain an excellent knowledge of the Pension Risk Transfer proposition and processes of L&G along with any changes to pensions and de-risking legislation to further support the development of our Pension Risk Transfer Implementation capabilities across our UK business structures and future active territories.

This is a hybrid working opportunity based from our Hove Offices, which will allow you to work flexibly between your home and the office to find a work/life balance that works for you.

PLEASE NOTE - Whilst this role is advertised as Full Time, we would also welcome applications from people who are seeking Part Time opportunities.
