Graduate, People & Organisation Actuarial, London, 2021

Job description

As one of the UK’s largest Actuarial practices we're market leaders providing insights and solutions for all businesses that face significant and complex risks. We play an important role in supporting clients through uncertain times. Actuaries analyse how future events could affect businesses and we calculate the impact these event could have on our clients. Using our risk and analytical skills and predictive insights, we calculate 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.

 


People & Organisation

In People and Organisation (P&O) you’ll help some of the leading UK and international employers make the most of their biggest asset – their people. It’s such a diverse area, you could work on projects helping business leaders define their HR strategy, through to advising clients on how to improve the effectiveness of their workforce. Or help senior executives understand their global personal tax obligations, to implementing cutting‑edge technology in the HR space. You'll work on projects across all sectors of the economy, providing vital support to clients. And whatever you work on, you'll learn about employment tax risk, employment cost reduction and employer social responsibility.
 

Programme

Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career.

As an Actuary in Pensions, you’ll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen.

As an Actuary 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.
