As a leading independent UK professional services consultancy, at Barnett Waddingham we are free to do the right thing by our clients at all times. We aim to do so through a partnership approach that delivers real value. Our independence and culture empowers us to think freely and advise on solutions based on our clients’ needs rather than proposing solutions based on house standards and products or having chargeable hours targets. To further support our continued growth as an independent, resilient and evergreen business, we need talented, motivated and enthusiastic people to join our Graduate Programme.
What do we do?
As a professional services consultancy, our teams use cutting-edge techniques to advise a range of stakeholders, providing investment advice and advice on the finance of pension schemes, helping them find tailored solutions to their pension challenges:
- employers (almost 25% of FTSE 100 and almost 10% of FTSE350 companies);
- clients who look after pension schemes, commonly known as trustees and
- local government authorities and other public sector organisations such as NHS, fire services, police authorities and teachers
In addition, we advise insurance companies and other organisations such as charities, endowments, family offices on a wide range of services, such as investment advice, mortality projections and longevity risk. We’re also branching into exciting new areas that provide the opportunity to further use actuarial and risk management skills.
Our Trainee Consultants will start with a foundational set of exams which form part of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries’ Fellowship qualification (FIA). Depending on the team chosen after completing the initial Graduate Programme, our Trainee Consultants have the option to either continue studying for the FIA qualification or consider alternative routes to qualification, such as Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA.)
Who are we looking for?
Our current graduate vacancies require a minimum 2:1 degree and A at A-Level Maths. We require dedicated individuals with a strong academic background who are dynamic, proactive and have excellent communication skills. Developing your consultancy and numerical skills requires time for studying and monetary support towards exam materials, which is why our study package encompasses this and much more.
