No you can't. If you're employed by the Department of Education for instance, even if you don't have a defined benefit pension - you STILL have to pay the pension levy. I understand that db pensions ARE good pensions and there should be a levy towards it, but penalising those who don't have the db pension under a pension levy is nuts.

Soldiers not allowed to protest themselves so have to rely on wives, partners, boyfriends of girlfriends to do it for them.

A defined benefit pension doesn't exist as far as I know for anyone starting a job outside civil service, because it's essentially a blank cheque for the future. For that matter I wonder do they exist in the civil service still?

You should get the right to take your pension contribution to whatever (legal) pension vehicle that's available
