Trustee Director

We are always on the lookout for outstanding candidates to join our trustee director team. We would love to hear from you if you are:

  • A professional individual with the experience and gravitas to win the trust of sponsors and trustee boards
  • Bringing extensive pensions knowledge (ideally gained at least in part as a trustee)
  • Committed to being a trustee, having completed the Trustee Toolkit and preferably having begun or completed the Pensions Management Institute’s Award in Pension Trusteeship
  • Interested in committing to LawDeb’s City-based team earning a salary rather than paying franchise fees
  • Seeing the role as a phase in your career, not a way of easing into retirement, with an expected time horizon of at least six years.

Our eighteen trustee directors have backgrounds in accountancy, actuarial work, banking, investment/fund management, multinational company finance roles, pensions administration and pensions law equipping the team with a wealth of technical knowledge and experience. We are currently particularly interested in candidates with insurance or investment backgrounds.

At LawDeb we see pension trusteeship as a career and are committed to training our people. We do not expect you to bring clients with you but would expect you, over time, to support the development of our business. Our structure means we are able to support your development as a trustee through working with our existing clients alongside experienced trustee directors.

We also have a specialist pensions management team who support the work of our trustee directors.

If you are interested in finding out more about working at LawDeb as trustee director please email vicky.paramour@lawdeb.com.
