Pensions in the Childcare sector

Ireland’s childcare sector is finally getting recognition for the crucial role it plays supporting families and businesses alike. But childcare entrepreneurs and professionals need to secure their own financial position, as well as helping others.

The sector is labour intensive, highly regulated, and margins can be thin – so getting pensions right for staff, and extracting wealth as an owner is critical. If you work in childcare, this Masterclass shows you how.

Wealthcare for Healthcare

Healthcare professionals haven’t had much time to stay on top of their finances lately. So this one-hour session aims to give all you need to know about planning your pension if you’re a medical or healthcare professional.

Many healthcare workers have multiple employments, both public and private. Some smart planning can make sure your pension situation is optimised for your situation, and matches the shape of your career in healthcare.

Programming your future – pensions in tech and rapid growth businesses

Tech and rapid-growth businesses have some unique pensions and benefits challenges. Young and mobile workforces have different demands and expectations. And there may be competing demands for short-term benefits like RSUs and bonuses, making engagement difficult.

If you have responsibility for pensions and people in a fast-growth business in Ireland, this Masterclass is for you.

What’s Pensions Awareness Week?

Pensions Awareness Week (PAW) is an initiative to raise awareness about the importance of pensions for all people in Ireland.

Many of us feel that we should be doing more to get to grips with our pension plans. Pensions Awareness Week is where that conversation starts. It’s the only place where pension savers, pension experts, businesses and financial wellbeing organisations get together to offer help.
