The Opportunity

If you are an existing PCF12 & PCF14 with an operational background in Financial Services and specific knowledge of pensions, a rare opportunity has become available with a superb client in Kildare.  This is a great opportunity for someone keen to work on a flexible basis in a standalone role, working with an affable and personable MD, avoiding the Dublin traffic and joining an organisation that is set to get a clean bill of health from the Central Bank so timing is ideal for a new starter.  Reporting to the Board of Directors, you will ensure the organisation is proactive in terms of regulatory returns, corporate governance, and MCC requirements – there are no staff to manage and access to external supports if, and when, required are available (Consultancies and Admin teams). A well-established SME with great customers and a solid team and very low attrition rates, this is a long term opportunity for the right candidate.
