About the Junior Analyst programme
We are now recruiting for Junior Analysts looking for a career in the financial sector to start on our internal school leaver programme. This programme is perfect for talented, highly numerate school leavers who want to develop a career in areas that are in high demand – these include finance, data analysis, coding and modelling.
APR’s Junior analyst programme provides a fantastic start to your career, without the need to have been to university:
- You will be joining a very select team of outstanding staff, as we only take on the best candidates and don’t compromise on quality – as demonstrated by our actuarial exam record and excellent client feedback.
- As an APR analyst you will receive some of the best training in the industry, from a highly experienced team of colleagues – you’ll be given hands-on training in a variety of software packages, coding languages, and key technical and professional skills to ensure a lightning start to your development so that you’re equipped to dazzle our clients while working on projects.
- You’ll have the chance to make a significant impact early on in your APR career, whether it be delivering high-quality solutions to clients or working on in-house projects, helping to develop our successful business.
- An analyst role with APR will give you unrivalled variety in your work, through exposure to different types of clients across the whole spectrum of actuarial work, offering a real breadth of experience.
- APR will fully support you through the programme, with high-quality training. You will also 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.
- After the first year covering the foundations, you will have the potential to work towards world-recognised professional qualifications such as becoming a fully qualified actuary with the Institute of Actuaries or well-regarded data science qualifications.
We welcome applications for this role from individuals looking towards a September 2023 start date.
Applicants should be highly numerate and analytical, with good communication skills, and be enthusiastic to learn.
For our Junior Analyst role, we are looking for candidates with (or predicted to achieve) the following minimum level of academic qualifications (or equivalents):
- 128 UCAS points (equivalent to ABB at A-Level).
- Grade A at A-level in a Maths-related subject.
- Grade 7 at GCSE in English Language.
However, we are willing to consider applications that don’t quite meet this standard where there are extenuating circumstances – please make this clear when submitting your application.
We expect the application of successful candidates to demonstrate a genuine appetite for working towards a professional qualification, a desire to excel in a mathematically challenging and technically demanding role, and a clear sense of why you think APR is a good match for your abilities and ambitions; applications not touching on these areas are likely to be rejected.
