Paul joined Buzzacott in 2020 and is an Associate Director in our Financial Planning team.
Paul provides advice and support on employee benefits strategies as well as the specific components. His specialist areas of expertise are employer pension schemes, group risk insurance, private medical cover and voluntary benefits, wellbeing, financial education and employee communications. He works with employers of all sizes ranging from inbound start-ups and SMEs, to larger charities and corporates.
For SMEs and larger employers, common challenges include: improving employee engagement, catering for the needs of different employee demographic groups and ensuring competitiveness against peers. As it is now viable for smaller clients to establish benefits and support that may have been solely the domain of large corporates a few years ago, Paul’s experience with larger employers allows him to advise SMEs on ways they can take advantage of market developments and innovations to meet their objectives.
Paul also supports US inbound employers who can be unfamiliar with the UK pension regime and need advice on complying with their Employer Duties and establishing a competitive range of benefits quickly.
He works with other teams within Buzzacott including HR Consultancy, Corporate Tax, and Payroll to deliver a one stop solution and provide strategic advice on the benefits and HR strategy.
Prior to joining Buzzacott, Paul was an employee benefits consultant with a number of major consultancies including Close Brothers, Broadstone (a BDO network firm) and AJ Gallagher.
Away from his desk Paul enjoys cycling and has an interest in geology.
