What skills do I need to become a Consultant at Hymans Robertson?
Typically work involves predicting future financial events, especially when the amount of a future payment, or its timing, is uncertain. It’s often really challenging, with a wide range of issues to be considered, including business operational factors, potential changes to legislation, and long-term demographic trends.
Our consultants therefore have to be highly technical and able to perform complicated mathematics and analysis. In addition to the technical work, our consultants are also innovative thinkers, creative solution-finders and really effective communicators. This blend of skills allows our consultants to work in partnership with a diverse range of clients, providing tailored advice and solving real financial and business problems. Making financial futures more certain.
Do you have a Summer Internship programme?

The internship normally runs through June to August. You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside some of the most talented consultants in the industry and get some fantastic, hands-on experience and insight into an actuarial consulting career. In addition you will work on an individual project throughout your internship.
