Pension ignored in recruitment advertisements

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) has recently issued the findings of a report into the number of recruitment advertisements carrying information relating to company pensions. Whilst the government has upped its campaign for pension reform the research found that out of 1,132 job advertisements, only 69 provided details of an employee pension.

The 6.1% marks a 0.5% drop from 2004, and of the 69 advertisements, only 29 mentioned a final salary scheme.

“Employers who offer workplace pension schemes should be boasting about it,” said Brendan Barber, general secretary of the TUC. “Those who don’t are missing a golden opportunity to attract and retain key workers who are seeking a pension in their benefits package. If all job adverts gave clear information on their pension schemes, prospective employees would take the advertisement more seriously.”
