About the Actuarial Analyst programme
We are now recruiting for Actuarial Analysts looking to pursue the Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) qualification. This is a globally recognised and portable qualification awarded by a highly-regarded profession. Successful candidates will therefore have the opportunity to gain a meaningful qualification while earning and quickly developing some great skills and experience.
This programme is perfect for talented, highly numerate school leavers or graduates who want to develop a career in areas that are widely anticipated to be in high demand in future – these include finance, data analysis, coding and modelling.
Why choose APR?
We believe working with APR offers unrivalled, wider opportunities to kick-start your career:
- This is an opportunity to ‘earn while you learn’. With a generous starting salary plus bonus, and future increases based on experience and performance, the analyst role is a great chance to work towards a meaningful qualification without accumulating student debt!
- As well as the salary and study package, you will receive intensive, hands-on training in a variety of software packages, coding languages, and key technical and professional skills to ensure both your continuing development and that you’re equipped to dazzle our clients while working on projects.
- Working with APR will give you the opportunity to work in many different roles and companies across the UK (and possibly beyond!), broadening your experience while keeping things interesting.
- You will be provided with a mentor who you can turn to for day-to-day support and who will look after your ongoing development and future career plans, as well as introduce you to your colleagues and APR’s social activities.
- APR will fully support you through the whole CAA qualification, both financially and through high-quality training. (Don’t worry, you will be given days off work to study for the exams!) As well as being a valued qualification in its own right, the CAA qualification can also be used as a stepping stone to becoming an actuary and therefore taking this route does not curtail your ultimate career ambitions.
