The Vacancy

Do you enjoy building relationships, solving complex problems, and working with numbers? If so, our Graduate Trainee Consultant Programme could be the perfect next step for your Graduate Career!

What will your role look like?

From day one, you’ll become a valued member of the Hymans Robertson team. Our Graduate Opportunities are diverse in nature and will give you the chance to work with an exciting variety of businesses and stakeholders, where no two days will be the same.

You’ll be aligned to one of our Business Areas (either Actuarial Public, Actuarial Private, Investments, Defined Contribution Consulting, or Insurance & Financial Services) and will be supported by experienced and friendly colleagues within your team to become a technical expert within your area.

In short, you’ll use data to help businesses make decisions that can positively impact the lives of their employees. Some of the key activities you will be involved in will include:

  • Providing analysis of large data sets, and presenting the results of this in an easily understandable format
  • Supporting our consultants to formulate advice for clients based on this analysis and, in time, providing advice to your own set of clients
  • Developing your skills in using data modelling tools and software
  • Maintaining our quality standards and risk management procedures along with adhering to our Information Security standards, policies and procedures

You will also become a student member of either the IFoA or CFA Institute and will receive a generous study support package as you work towards the completion of your exams and fully qualifying as a consultant.

If you enjoy the following, we think you’ll love this opportunity:

  • Building relationships and communicating with people
  • Working with large sets of detailed data and other forms of information
  • Solving complex problems
  • A fun and fast-paced working environment, where you are encouraged to collaborate with your colleagues
  • Being adaptable and flexible in your approach to tasks

You don’t need to be joining us from a purely maths or actuarial science based subject to excel in this role as we recognise that any University degree will give you an amazing set of transferable skills that are valuable in any workplace. However, we do require you to have the ability to work well with numbers.

In addition to a competitive salary and access to our profit share scheme, we offer:

  • A flexible selection of employee benefits, so you can choose a package that best matches your lifestyle and needs
  • A collaborative and supportive work environment where your thinking and ideas are encouraged
  • A generous study support package
  • On site mental health and wellbeing support
  • A commitment to helping you develop both personally and professionally, with mentoring opportunities and access to our award-winning learning portal, Aspire
  • Regular social activities, in addition to three days paid volunteering leave each year and a day’s leave to celebrate your birthday
