The National Association of Pension Funds is looking for volunteers to help spread the word about the benefits of pension saving.
The NAPF associates and pension guides, as they will be known, are expected to be drawn mainly from recently retired industry professionals or those working part-time.
The associates will either work with staff to help during NAPF conferences or will assist on policy work ranging from the scrutiny and review of draft regulations through to helping build a case for regulatory reform in key areas of the pension debate. Pension guides will deliver the NAPF’s new pensions force service. Pensions force is a free, independent service to help people understand pensions and the options available to them. Pension guides will use scripted information packs to deliver information on the benefits of planning for retirement and the choices available to people through worksite presentations.
Director of policy Joanne Segars says: “We are looking for people who want to make a real contribution and who will become either NAPF associates or pension guides. Both will be volunteers with a passion for pensions and time available.”
