Actuarial

Actuaries work with uncertainty. Join us and you’ll help clients analyse how future events - anything from a corporate takeover to a major natural disaster – could affect them.

Broadly speaking, our actuaries work in one of two specialist areas. In both, we’re among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.

In Actuarial Services you’ll work with clients from the insurance industry (both life and general insurance), but also from outside the insurance industry where you’ll work with clients from the banking sector (retail and investment), the healthcare sector, the public sector, as well as corporate clients from the non-financial services sector like energy and utility providers. Your advice could cover solvency, reserving, economic capital, risk management, mergers and acquisitions, company restructuring and de-risking, financial modelling, underwriting, new legislation, the visibility of new products and the efficiency of claims or reporting processes.

In People and Organisation you’ll work in either our Pensions team or Reward and Employment team.

In Pensions, you’ll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multinationals to private listed businesses. Using our market-leading pension’s analytics tool, you’ll be part of the team advising them on how to best achieve their objectives in relation to their pension or benefit schemes. You’ll consult on how clients should manage both liability and asset risks within their pension plans, negotiate with trustees on how to fund schemes, designs plans to help employees save for retirement and advise on potential mergers or acquisitions.

In Reward and Employment, you’ll help companies’ incentivise their most senior employees. As part of a multidisciplinary team, you’ll use broad consulting skills underpinned by financial modelling techniques to develop reward structures that support business strategy and are acceptable to shareholders and employees alike.
