“It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.”
“Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.”
“Clare Owen has been a really excellent scheme secretary”
“Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.”
“Ian has added more value than we thought he would at the start… which shows it pays to go with someone who is doing the job of a professional trustee as their bread and butter.”
“The trustee training was a very well-paced overview which gave opportunity to explore ideas and question more deeply at key points.”
Kirsty co-ordinates all day-to-day activities for a range of trustee secretary appointments. She also provides support to our team of independent trustees.
Kirsty began her pensions career in 1990 with Provident Life (Winterthur Life) where she worked on a variety of occupational and individual pension schemes. She has also held administration positions in third party and in house environments, including with Hartshead Solway, Aon and QinetiQ.
In 2006, Kirsty moved into a pensions specialist role at QinetiQ, a public private partnership outsourced from the civil service. She supported the pensions manager and trustee board with the day-to-day running of the scheme. Her duties included organising trustee training, maintaining internal processes, liaising with the HR team during sales and acquisitions and setting up a new GPP. She joined us in 2011.
Kirsty has been a guide leader for over 30 years, winning a service award for her work with her Unit, District and Division.
