As an actuary, you’ll work with uncertainty. We're the UK's largest Actuarial practice, with jobs in seven locations across the country.
You might be calculating the impact of changing demographics or legislation on pension schemes; the effects that changes in financial markets have on different organisations; or how likely a business is to be hit by an earthquake. You’ll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen. Just as important, you’ll develop a flair for presenting your findings in simple, easy-to-understand language. What’s more, early client exposure will broaden your experience. There are two business areas you can choose from – both among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.
You might help analyse the impact that new regulation will have on an insurance company’s balance sheet or you could be revising businesses’ projections and making sure they have adequate reserves.
Whatever the project, you’ll make the most of your analytical skills to deliver real commercial insights. Insights that will help our clients prepare for issues you see regularly on the news.
You'll work in one of our key areas within Actuarial People and Organisation. You’ll work in either our Pensions team or the Reward and Employment team.
In People and Organisation you’ll work in one of our two teams.
In Pensions, you’ll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multinationals to private listed businesses. Using our market-leading pensions analytics tool and range of expertise, you'll help clients develop and implement their pension strategy or benefit schemes, consult on how they should manage both liability and asset risks within their pension plans, negotiate with trustees on how to fund schemes, design plans to help employees save for retirement, advise on potential mergers or acquisitions, and account for their pension schemes.
In Reward and Employment, you’ll help companies work out how to incentivise and reward their employees. As part of a multidisciplinary team, you’ll draw on your problem-solving skills to advise clients in this complex and challenging area, using financial modelling and analytical techniques to develop reward structures that support business strategy, drive appropriate behaviours, and are acceptable to shareholders and employees alike
