Project and Data Team Leader

Job ID: E26223

Location: Shell Centre/Canary Wharf, London, United Kingdom

We’re looking to recruit an exceptional team leader to join our Pensions Administration Team in the UK. This team provides administration services for the Shell Contributory Pension Fund and Shell Overseas Contributory Pension Fund . These are both defined benefit pension funds and, together, have a fund membership of approximately 50,000 members, including a pensioner payroll of £30 million per month for a population of around 30,000 pensioners in the UK and overseas.

The Projects and Data Team Lead will report to the Pensions Administration Manager. With two direct reports this would be an ideal opportunity for an experienced pensions administration professional to manage pensions administration projects and key pension administration events and to ensure the integrity of data for a significant pension fund in the UK and to become part of Shell’s global pensions community.

The Pensions Administration Team has recently been reorganised following the implementation of a new pensions administration system, Compendia, including a significant exercise to cleanse the member data. In addition to acting as Deputy to the Pensions Administration Manager, the successful applicant will be expected to manage pensions administration projects and key events, to improve and maintain member data quality and to encourage new ways of working which are now possible with the new pensions administration system.

Duties will include, but not be restricted to the following:-
Lead and Manage the Projects and Data Team.
Oversee delivery of and authorise all key pensions administration events, e.g. annual benefit statements and valuation extract.
Manage the monthly bulk leaver process to ensure accurate information is provided to members and customer service level targets are met.
Manage and undertake ad-hoc complex pensions projects, including enhancements to the pensions administration system.
Manage the data change process for active members through the HR and payroll interfaces.
Ensure compliance with the Pension Regulator’s (TPR) record keeping requirements and, in particular, meet TPR’s target for all member records by end 2012.
Ensure complete and accurate data is maintained for all membership records.
Manage the administration of the Additional Voluntary Contribution arrangement.
Contribute to the Administration Reports for the Trustee Boards.

Educated to A level standard or higher, you’ll preferably hold a professional pension qualification (e.g. PMI,QPA) We’d expect you to have experience of managing a small team of administrators and have strong communication skills. We’d also expect you to have advanced technical knowledge of defined benefit pension schemes and UK pensions legislation. Experience with pensions administration systems, deputising for senior leadership and Projects are essential.
