Running during the summer, our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
Actuaries work with uncertainty. Join us and you’ll help clients analyse how future events could affect them. This could be anything from a corporate take-over 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.
In Actuarial Services you’ll work with clients from the insurance industry (both life and general insurance), but also from the banking sector (retail and investment), the healthcare sector, the public sector, as well as corporate clients from the non-financial services sector like energy and utility providers. Your advice could cover solvency, reserving, economic capital, risk management, mergers and acquisitions, company restructuring and de-risking, financial modelling, underwriting, new legislation, the viability of new products and the efficiency of claims or reporting processes.
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.
What you need to get in
At PwC we no longer use UCAS tariff as an assessment tool for the majority of our undergraduate and graduate opportunities. However, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries require you to have
Minimum Grade C in A Level mathematics or equivalent (Depending on your degree subject this A level requirement may be dropped)
In addition to this UCAS requirement, PwC also require you to be
In your penultimate year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree; or
In your final year of an undergraduate degree with a one year postgraduate place confirmed; and on target for a 2.1 in any degree discipline
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.
