The Pension Scheme Administration Staff Remuneration Survey was established in 1998, and examines the remuneration of third-party corporate pension scheme administrators.

Participants include the majority of the UK's leading pensions consulting organisations.
ROLES COVERED BY THIS SURVEY


Third-party pensions administration jobs are matched against a model that has seven levels available - 2 at manager level, 2 at team leader level and 3 at administrator level.

The Survey separately analyses the remuneration of the following roles;
  • Client Service Delivery Roles
  • Administration Operations Roles
  • Technical and Operations Support Roles
At present all jobs are drawn from consulting and specialist administration firms. In-house pensions administration jobs and insurance company administrator jobs are not currently included.
