Job Introduction

What does it take to become a leading health and social care organisation in the UK? It takes people who can turn lives around every day – providing encouragement, delivering innovative services and generally improving life for individuals with a learning disability or those affected by drug and alcohol misuse or mental health problems. But it’s not just our front–line teams that make a difference. So do the dedicated professionals who work behind the scenes to support the vital work we do? And that’s where you can come in.

Turning Point is recruiting a Pensions Officer who will be based partially in Manchester City centre and partially at home.

Role Responsibility

Our payroll and pension function is based at The Exchange in Manchester alongside our People Services team.

As Pensions Officer, your duties will include ensuring accurate and timely deduction and payment of pension contributions; providing an effective administration service to meet the requirements of all pension schemes and contributing to the continuous improvement of our payroll and pensions processes.

The following experience is essential:

  • Understanding of pension auto enrolment legislation
  • Exposure of a salary sacrifice defined contribution pension scheme
  • Ability to use Microsoft Office applications to an intermediate standard
  • A practical understanding of confidentiality and data protection legislation
  • A strong knowledge of payroll and pensions legislation coupled with the ability to respond to and apply mandated changes
  • Experience of delivering a customer focused payroll service
  • Excellent numeracy and analytical skills

The following experience would be beneficial:

  • Experience of pension scheme starters, leavers and year-end administration including NHS and Local Government Pension Schemes
  • Experience of processing complex monthly payrolls with a large volume of employees
  • Ability to undertake manual calculations (including tax, NIC and pension deductions) in line with legislation
