NOW: Pensions, the independent multi-employer trust, is to provide its auto-enrolment services to the pension scheme of a leading recruitment business.

From January 2013, NOW: Pensions will be responsible for providing the auto-enrolment pensions to eligible employees within Blue Arrow's workforce of 30,000.

Blue Arrow is one of the UK's leading staffing businesses, dedicated to providing bespoke staffing solutions to both the private and public sectors through a network of specialist branches and on-site locations. 

Mark Manaton, managing director at the Blue Arrow Group, said about the new solution: "We pride ourselves on providing our clients with innovative yet simple solutions for the workforce which is why we want a pension scheme that reflects this. Its structured approach removes the complicated investment choices, makes auto-enrolment a straightforward and simple process, and ensures optimum outcomes for our employees at retirement."

Morten Nilsson, CEO of NOW: Pensions, commented: "Blue Arrow is dedicated to supporting major organisations and businesses in achieving greater focus on productivity and workforce flexibility. Ahead of its auto-enrolment staging date, the company has taken the necessary steps to ensure its employees are provided with a supportive, low-cost pension plan that's simple and easy to understand, and which will deliver value to them."
