Job description

Acting as an expert adviser to the insurance industry, our Actuarial team help organisations to manage financial risk. Here, you’ll be given the chance to use detailed analysis of past events to create accurate models of the future – and crucially, advise on their financial implications. It’s a highly technical role, best suited to graduates who are numerate, extremely ambitious and able to communicate complex ideas to non-specialists. Our Actuarial Graduate Programme is a great opportunity to build a varied career, gain the Actuarial qualification in three to five years, benefit from a range of training options and help clients to solve complex business challenges. Within Actuarial, there are two different areas which you could join:

Life Actuarial Services provides advice to the Life Insurance industry, who in turn provide investment related products (such as endowments or insurance bonds) or protection products (such as term assurance policies or critical illness cover). 

General Insurance covers the spectrum of business and personal risks, with types of insurance ranging from standard car and house to more exotic insurances covering satellites, oil rigs or hurricane damage. Changing regulations, new products and developing markets mean that nothing stands still in this challenging and demanding business area. 

Like our clients, we're having to adapt. This means new working patterns, physical adjustments in our offices and new ways of interacting with our colleagues as well as the organisations we work with - we are harnessing technology to help underpin this change.

Capability:
Consulting
Programme Length:
