Retirement is changing dramatically. Where it used to suggest an ending, today it can be a beginning – a time to explore, discover, and get on with the rest of your life. This change has paved the way for Just to be a new type of company. One that sees people as unique individuals, always adapting and evolving, and dares to believe in great things.

You’ll be responsible for project planning and managing scheme transitions from contract negotiations through to the end of data cleanse, agreeing process and timescales with the trustees and internal key stakeholders ensuring client commitments are met.
You will need to display excellent stakeholder management throughout the process as the role will involve working on a number of transactions at once and you’re responsible for ensuring all parties involved in the initial transition activities (Just, the Client, administrators and advisers) are aware of their responsibilities and agree with proposed timescales for completion.
