The PwC Deal
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life.
Using complex financial and statistical theories to calculate the likelihood of events - anything from a natural disaster to a wholesale IT system failure - you'll work out what that means financially for clients. It's highly technical work and it's made all the more challenging by the fact that you'll have to present your complex findings in simple, easy to understand ways. There are two business areas you can choose from, Actuarial Services and Actuarial People and Organisations, both are among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.
You’ll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multinationals to private listed businesses. Using our market-leading pensions 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.
What you'll gain
You'll find out first-hand if this is the career for you. If it is - and you perform well - you could go back to university with a graduate job offer. And you'll certainly raise your commercial awareness and interpersonal skills to new levels. By experiencing life inside the world's leading professional services organisation, you'll develop many new skills and qualities that will be valuable whatever you choose to do.

If you are unable to meet these UCAS requirements, we won't be able to consider you for a role as an Actuary. Therefore, you may want to consider other programmes on offer which don't have a UCAS tariff requirement.

Do you need sponsorship to work in the UK?
We can't provide sponsorship for internships and fixed-term placements. However, if you're in full-time education in the UK under the Tier 4 (General) category, current regulations may permit temporary employment during holiday periods or as part of your studies. If you're studying outside the UK, you'll need to obtain your own right to work in the UK to undertake a placement with us.
We know that the skills and experiences you develop with us will stay with you throughout your career. So join PwC. We'll help you reach your full potential.
Take the opportunity of a lifetime.
