Every year we recruit a number of highly talented people who are ready to embark on their career of becoming an actuarial consultant, a career that encompasses an array of skills you simply won’t find in any other profession. And unlike other graduate trainee programmes, we won’t try and turn you into a cookie-cutter consultant – we want you to be you, with all your individual quirks and characteristics.
To qualify as an actuary, you’ll have to master economics, probability, statistics, financial mathematics and more. You’ll also have to be able to keep track of changing legislation, demographics and markets.
However, there’s more to being an actuarial consultant than that. You’ll also need to be an expert problem solver, a clear communicator and a technical analyst. You’ll need to be able to devise creative and coherent solutions and help our clients understand and feel comfortable with our proposals.
The minimum academic requirements are a 2.1 Honours Degree in a numeric discipline, coupled with strong ‘A’ Level or ‘Higher’ results, including a Grade A in mathematics.
While many trainees join with mathematical or statistical based backgrounds, recent recruits have had degrees in subjects as diverse as aeronautical engineering and physics.
