Top Employer for top talent
Are you an IT professional and do you not only like your area of expertise, but do you also like to work in a team and shift gears? Our IT department offers plenty of challenges, changes and development. Highly qualified IT specialists work here, not only with state-of-the-art automation systems, but also on the development and implementation of these systems.
APG’s technical infrastructure is essential. Each month we pay 1 million individual pensions and each year we send out 1.2 million pension statements that include personal calculations covering different situations. In addition, automation plays a major role in managing over € 436 billion (November 2016) in pension assets. We accomplish all of this with almost 800 IT professionals, successfully and with satisfaction. APG has had the right to call itself a Top Employer and a Top IT Employer for the past 9 years. This year APG is one of the top three IT Top Employers in the Netherlands.
Streamlining a complex process
Almost 1 million people every month receive their pension from APG, accurate to the cent. And 1.2 million people each year receive a current pension statement, which includes the calculation of their personal pension for various situations. The correct calculation and timely payment of these individual pension amounts is a complex process. Employers, employees and employers’ and employees’ organizations judge APG on this process. It is for good reason then that one in four APG employees is an IT professional.
The automation systems we develop in-house serve as reference architecture for other large organizations, such as the Dutch Tax Authorities. Due to the scope and complexity of our work we have an extensive IT department with specialists in every area ranging from software to systems architecture. We support every department within APG from Pension Administration to Asset Management.
