For immediate release: 27 June 2016

Workplace pensions provider NOW: Pensions has expanded its Nottingham office, taking an additional floor at its newly opened 37 Park Row office.

The expansion comes seven months after NOW: Pensions opened its Nottingham office in November 2015. Since that time, NOW: Pensions has hired 66 employees including roles in client support, finance, sales, I.T. and administration. As part of the expansion, the aim is to hire a further 192 members of staff over the next two years.

NOW: Pensions will be hosting regular assessment centres for its client support and administration roles and all jobs will be advertised on our website, various hiring sites and also at the Jobcentre Plus. Whilst experience of financial services is preferable, it is not essential as full training is provided. Further information can be found on the NOW: Pensions careers website at www.nowpensions.com/about/careers

One of the UK’s leading providers of workplace pensions for auto enrolment, NOW: Pensions has over 20,000 clients and more than 900,000 members. Its parent company is Danish pension fund ATP.

Morten Nilsson, CEO of NOW: Pensions said: “We opened our doors in Nottingham just seven months ago and have been impressed with the calibre of staff we’ve attracted in Nottingham.  We look forward to welcoming many more over the coming months.

With thousands of firms still to introduce pensions for their staff in 2016, there will be huge demand for our services. The office expansion in Nottingham will help to make sure our customers receive the support they need both with the introduction of their schemes and on an ongoing basis.”

Sarah Louise-Smith, NOW: Pensions Technical Consultant, Nottingham said: “What initially attracted me to NOW: Pensions was the growth of the business and the opportunities that creates. The recruitment process was pretty straightforward and I really enjoy the team I work with, the environment and flexibility offered. If someone asked me what to say to somebody thinking of joining NOW: Pensions, I would say do it!”
