Becoming a Pensions Consultant (Projects) with Capita Employee Solutions :
We are looking to employ a dynamic individual to take up the role of a Pensions Consultant. This will be a two-year contract to deliver on projects arising from two high-profile Court cases.
The Pensions Consultant (Projects) will join the Policy and Technical Team (PATT). While pensions experience would be preferred, the successful candidate will need a broad range of skills in order to deliver a challenging project which is due to be completed by 2022.
Working at our bright modern offices at Lingfield Point in Darlington, you’ll work on the Teachers’ Pensions (TP) contract to implement a rectification solution following the Court of Appeal judgement in the McCloud and Sargeant cases.
On 20 December 2018, the Court of Appeal ruled that the transitional protection arrangements for members of the Firefighters’ (Sargeant) and Judicial (McCloud) Pension schemes (introduced as part of scheme reforms in 2015) were unlawful on the grounds of age discrimination.
A rectification solution is to be applied across the public sector, including the Teachers’ Pension Scheme (TPS).
Reporting to the Head of Teachers’ Pensions, the successful candidate will be required to work closely with other colleagues in the TP Client Delivery Team and wider areas of TP operations.
The candidate will need to have an eye for detail and, using their analytical skills, be able to deal with a range of correspondence and queries from members, employers, regulatory bodies and staff.
The successful applicant will need to become fully conversant with overriding legislation and the Teachers’ Pension regulations, which govern the Teachers’ Pension Scheme.
What you will do :

This will involve revisiting previous entitlements and awards previously paid by the TPS to see if they are subject to amendment.
