The Role

As a Calculations Implementation Consultant, you’ll be a key member of one of our project delivery teams within Heywood Pension Technologies’ (‘HPT’) - effectively developing, managing, and delivering solutions for new and existing customers.

Collaboration is key at HPT, both within the Professional Services team and across the wider business. You will be able to build strong working relationships across teams and with our customers to deliver configuration of our in-house developed and award-winning software, Altair, which our customers use to administer some of the UK’s largest pension schemes.

This is a varied role which involves a fantastic mix of technical and consultancy skills. You will implement a range of different solutions for customers, each with their own bespoke requirements. These solutions range from routines that help customers to calculate their members’ benefits and programs for loading and validating data, to automated reports to help customers manage and monitor their services. You will be involved in the end-to-end lifecycle of implementation, including requirement gathering, solution design, configuration, delivery, and post implementation support.

Our culture nurtures continuous improvement and you will be able to put your own footprint on where we are going next, and what tools and processes we should make use of in the future.

Working for an expanding established market leader, you will have a real voice to influence our evolution. Continued learning and progression is ingrained in our daily life, encouraged through a variety of forums from e-learning subscriptions and a monthly down-tools day (“Hive Day”) and communities of practice for learning and experimentation. Our open culture encourages wide participation and innovation.

We also reward our hard work through regular socials, organised by our people. Socials events include fiercely competitive online quizzes, sporting events, games nights and much more!

We are very fortunate at HPT to have grown our business during a global pandemic, remotely on-boarding over 70 (and counting) new recruits in the last 18 months.

We are committed to a hybrid working model. We have empowered our people to determine if working from home or the office, under current safety provisions set out by official guidelines, suits them best, giving us all greater flexibility.
