We are part of Sanlam, the global AA-rated financial services group that was established in 1918.

The roles
 
One area for these vacancies is a newly formed team where your role will be to support the activities of our Discretionary Fund Managers (Portfolio Managers) who we have based across the country.
 
Your role will be to ensure all financial instructions from our Portfolio Managers are conducted as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
 
Typically this will involve investment and disinvestment activities across a wide range of products; and whilst a considerable proportion will be Sanlam products (that will need your engagement and interaction with the relevant internal teams); you will also be dealing with an extensive range of 3rd party product providers to ensure requests are carried out as required.
 
The other area for these vacancies will involve a wide variety of tasks and responsibilities, which may include managing pension and life transfers, informing customers of their options they have under pension freedom changes, setting up drawdown products, arranging payment of benefits and client amendments (such as changes of name, sums assured, date of birth, frequency, servicing agent and amount of premiums).
 
Joining our experienced administration team; your role will be to engage with customers, financial advisors and third party providers to ensure that our customer’s pension and life products are suitably managed.
 
These are great opportunities for a highly organised administrator to gain or further their knowledge of DFM / Investments / Life and Pensions and wider financial services products.
 
Both areas will involve a wide variety of administrative tasks to complete; so the key to these roles will be your flexible approach, your prioritisation and time management skills as well as your ability to multitask.
