Barnett Waddingham is a partner-led business which prides itself in providing straightforward and well communicated actuarial advice. This philosophy means that we are dependent on talented and well-trained employees who enjoy working in a closely-knit and friendly organisation. Our growth has been significant since our creation in 1989. We aim to continue this growth by recruiting people who share in Barnett Waddingham’s values.
Our Insurance and Longevity Consulting (ILC) Team provides consultancy services to a range of insurance and non-insurance clients. Our clients range from large multinationals and small niche insurers to regulators and the Actuarial Profession, based across a range of territories. The ILC Team is predominantly based in London and has around 35 staff of which approximately half are qualified actuaries.
Barnett Waddingham is committed to providing the best possible service to all of its clients. We operate in a friendly and supportive environment. Our team consists of talented, motivated and enthusiastic individuals who support the development of our business.
We are looking to recruit a part-qualified actuary to join our Life Insurance team. Your role will include:
- Assisting client teams with the delivery of recurrent and project-based work, and
- Supporting internal projects and work streams.
To be considered you will have strong IT and analysis skills, two to four years’ experience working within an actuarial team, and will be making progress through the actuarial exams. Life Insurance experience is beneficial but not essential.
Other attributes we are looking for:
- Detail-oriented, yet able to understand and effectively communicate key results to both actuaries and non-actuaries.
- Confident in managing both your own work and that of others.
- Happy to work outside of your comfort zone.
- Able to take a hands-on approach; not afraid of getting your hands dirty.
- Able to work independently and as part of a team.
- Highly organised, you have the ability to work on multiple clients and tasks and meet deadlines.
- A team player, with the ability and confidence to liaise and communicate with stakeholders both internally and externally.
- See “the big picture”; understand the dependencies and consequences of a particular course of action
- A problem solver, love finding solutions to complex problems.
