Actuarial

Actuaries work with uncertainty., join us and you’ll help clients analyse how future events could affect them

You could be working on anything from a corporate takeover to a major natural disaster.

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 can join us in Actuarial Services you’ll work with clients from the insurance industry (both life and general insurance), or in People and Organisation you’ll work in either our Pensions team or Reward and Employment team.

 

The people at PwC are what have made my first year here so enjoyable. Everyone I’ve met is enthusiastic and keen to share their knowledge.
