What does APR do?
APR is a specialist actuarial firm with a straightforward ambition: to be a deeply trusted partner of our clients, supporting them in reaching their potential by solving the complex numerical and analytical problems within their businesses.
What does this mean in practice? Our client solutions include supporting existing functions, contributing to major change projects and providing technical expertise. They take the form of either on-site support, or consulting solutions under which we take problems away from the client and deliver a solution.
Through our innovative approach to solving problems faced by clients, APR has partnered successfully with many of the largest companies in the UK financial sector. A key pillar of our success has been our recruitment of some of the leading numerate graduate talent in the market. Most current employees joined APR as graduate associates, with many of these now holding senior positions in the business.
Our graduate programme
Each year we take on a small group of bright, technically-minded graduates, support them through our renowned intensive training programme and provide them with a broad range of stimulating and challenging client projects. In summary APR’s graduate scheme will give you the opportunity to:
- Receive some of the best training any actuarial employer offers, with extensive exposure to the skills our clients need, covering technical, IT and softer skills; and a full study support package – our graduates enjoy a significantly higher pass rate in the actuarial exams than the national average.
- Hold positions of responsibility from very early on in your actuarial career – we expect you will be making a difference within weeks of starting.
- Experience unrivalled variety in your work through exposure to a wide spectrum of actuarial, modelling and data analysis projects
- Develop wider business skills by being involved in a range of activities that will quickly see you become an integral part of our growing team.
Is APR for you?
Our culture is as you would hope from a young, unstuffy and inclusive company. We believe in treating our staff in the right manner, developing them wherever possible, communicating openly and sharing the rewards of a successful business with those who have contributed to its success.
As much of our work is in the form of on-site support at clients’ offices you must be prepared to work for significant periods away from your London, Edinburgh or Dublin base.View APR's Website
