Research update – Paucity of pensions in job adverts

Less than one-in-ten employers include workplace pensions in job advertisements – according to the Trades Union Congress. The TUC’s Annual survey found that only 69 of 1,132 job ads (6.1%) placed during a two-week period in July actually mentioned a pension. This low profile of pensions in newspaper job ads was lower than 2004, despite promotion work by the Department of Work and Pensions (DWP).
