The employee and employer agree on a set contribution level during employment (usually a percentage of salary). The contributions are invested at the discretion of the employee to build up a retirement fund. The pension at retirement isn’t guaranteed as it would be in a defined benefit/final salary scheme, but is instead based on the value of the pot at retirement.
