The group, which includes the football club MK Dons, InterMK, HotelMK, StadiumMK and MK Dons Sports and Education Trust, auto-enrolled staff into the master trust, provided by Carey Pensions. 

The provider will also offer administration services to all staff.

This is the first time Inter MK Group has offered staff a pension scheme and the organisation hopes the deal with a local provider will deliver a personal service for employees in order to maximise benefits at retirement.

Since its staging date in May, only four employees in the group have opted out of the pension scheme.

Daniel Cole, corporate partnerships manager at MK Dons, said: “MK Dons is committed to identifying and partnering with local businesses.

“Carey Pensions UK is a great example of a Milton Keynes-based organisation which provides an excellent suite of products and services.

“It is great to have it on board.”

Christine Hallet, chief executive officer of Carey Pensions, added: “We want to work closely with the club and its other partners to support MK Dons in achieving its goals.”
