Please note: This article is only relevant for salaried colleagues who were earning a pension in the final salary scheme at the time it closed in February 2011.

We are looking for a new colleague to become a Colleague Nominated Trustee of the Asda Group Pension Scheme. This vacancy presents a great opportunity for an enthusiastic colleague to serve the scheme so, if this sounds like something you’d like to know more about, please read on…

Asda Pension Scheme

What is required from a new Trustee?
We are looking for a colleague who was building up a pension when the Scheme closed. Previous pensions knowledge may be useful, but is not essential, as full training will be available. We’re looking for a colleague who is able to think clearly and logically, and is comfortable making important decisions based on complex information – decisions that may potentially affect a large number of colleagues and former colleagues. Expert professional advice and support is always on hand but the responsibility for the decisions made rests solely with the Trustees.
