Our actuarial trainees have the opportunity to work in a variety of roles in different business areas including: reserving, financial reporting, pricing, risk management, investments and systems. We expect that trainees will work in at least two or three different areas before qualification, which means our newly qualified actuaries tend to have a valuable breadth of experience.
Who are we looking for?
Applicants will have at least three A levels (or equivalent) and a degree (2:1 or better), ideally in mathematics or another numerate subject, although exceptional candidates with other degrees will be considered. We are looking for excellent communicators with strong problem solving skills.
