Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career.
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 takeover 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. We have graduate Actuarial opportunities 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.
- People and Organisations: Pensions - you’ll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen. Just as important, you’ll develop a flair for presenting your findings in simple, easy‑to‑understand language. What’s more, early client exposure will broaden your experience.
- People and Organisations: Reward and Employment - you’ll draw on your problem‑solving skills to advise clients in this complex and challenging area, using financial modelling and analytical techniques to develop and test reward structures that support business strategy, drive appropriate behaviours, and are considered fair to shareholders and employees alike.
What you’ll gain
You’ll study with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Once you’ve completed the exams, you’ll then be fully qualified and a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries.
What you’ll need
You'll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. We determine whether you're on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study. Some routes have specific degree requirements, please check on the PwC Careers pages online.
