Business Development Manager - Part Time & Flexible Working Available
Nest is the National Employment Savings Trust. It was set up by the government to give every worker in the UK somewhere to save for retirement. We’ve since grown to become one of the UK’s largest schemes
Your new team:
As an organisation Nest has a unique status within UK financial services: supported by a government loan, the scheme was set up to address a market failure and ensure all employers automatically enrolling their employees into a pension scheme had a quality, low cost scheme available to them.
The scheme is now operating in the market at scale, and that brings with it a series of new challenges and opportunities: how can we evolve the business to best serve our membership, taking into account the obligations placed on the scheme due to the nature of our funding arrangements with government?
The Nest Experience (NX) directorate was established in October 2020 and merged previously discrete directorates as part of continuing evolution to best meet the needs of our customers. The new directorate brought together the Customer Engagement, Service Delivery and a programme team that been running a re-procurement of our scheme administration contract.
Your new role:
The employer & intermediary experience (ERIX) team has responsibility for the end to end experience of our employers and intermediaries.
