We are seeking employer representatives to join the NHS Working Longer steering group which was established to address the impact of a raised retirement age on NHS staff, employers and the provision of health services. It is vital that employers’ views continue to be represented on this important area. As a representative on this partnership working group you will have an opportunity to input at a national level. This would be suitable for HR Directors or deputy HR Directors.
We are also seeking employers who have an interest in this area and would like to be part of a virtual reference group. This could be those involved in pensions, occupational health or HR and offers an excellent development opportunity.

You can register your interest via firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Rachael Armistead on 0113 306 3015 for an informal discussion on what will be involved in becoming an employer representative.
The Working Longer Group was established as part of the NHS Pension Scheme proposed final agreement. It is a tripartite partnership group between national recognised NHS Trade Unions, NHS employers and health department representatives. On 3 March 2014, the Working Longer Group preliminary findings and recommendations report was submitted to the health departments for consideration. The group has gathered a wealth of information and evidence, however there remains a great deal further to consider. The report made 11 recommendations, the final one being the continuation of the group to drive the implementation of the recommendations.
Further information is available on our Working Longer Group webpages.
