We pride ourselves on being a leader in the field of actuarial work. This is achieved through the expertise of and commitment given by our employees working within the actuarial teams. In order to maintain our reputation within the actuarial world and to achieve continued success, we realise the importance of recruiting the best trainees.
In line with the Certified Actuarial Analyst qualification being introduced by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries we are looking for enthusiastic and committed individuals with mathematical ability to join our Amersham team. This is not part of our Actuarial Graduate programme.
What we are looking for
We are looking for a hard-working individual in our Amersham office who would like to work for a highly reputable employer and who relish the opportunity to be involved in a rewarding and respected career.
The Actuarial Analyst’s role would primarily be to provide support to the actuaries and those training to become actuaries. The Actuarial Analyst would need to be able to understand and apply (following appropriate training) the mathematical skills associated with our actuarial work. This would, for example, involve processing individual member calculations, assisting with the data and calculation work for actuarial valuations, and helping to prepare draft reports.
We are keen to hear from school leavers who are numerically competent and we would require a B grade in A-level mathematics and a grade C in English language GCSE as a minimum.
What we have to offer
We would offer our Actuarial Analysts a competitive salary, along with a flexible benefits package and a full induction and on-going training programme. The Actuarial Analysts would be involved in a broad range of problem solving based work, including making use of our specialist software and communicating results to other team members.
We place a high emphasis on the development of our staff and the Actuarial Analysts would be part of a strong mentoring programme to support and actively encourage their personal development. This would be coupled with early responsibility and the opportunity to work closely with our Partners and Associates.
Barnett Waddingham would also provide the Actuarial Analysts with the opportunity to sit professional actuarial examinations, and would provide appropriate support in order to do so. In particular, our Actuarial Analysts would be encouraged to work towards the “Certified Actuarial Analyst” qualification offered by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries.
This is expected to take 2 – 3 years to achieve and further details can be found on the Institute and Faculty’s website: http://www.actuaries.org.uk/becoming-actuary/pages/my-career-certified-actuarial-analyst. As well as providing individuals with membership of a prestigious professional body, the qualification will be recognised worldwide.
Please note this role is for those who would like to start working towards the ‘Certified Actuarial Analyst’ qualification (rather than Associate/Fellow qualification).
