PwC

Actuarial

Graduate programme

Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career.

Actuarial

Actuaries work with uncertainty. Join us and you’ll help clients analyse how future events could affect them. This could be anything from a corporate take-over to a major natural disaster. You might be calculating the impact of changing demographics or legislation on pension schemes; the effects that changes in financial markets have on different organisations; or how likely a business is to be hit by an earthquake.

Our Actuarial opportunities

  • Actuarial Services - you’ll advise clients from various industries with issues such as solvency, reserving, economic capital, risk management, mergers and acquisitions, company restructuring and de-risking, financial modelling, underwriting, new legislation, the viability of new products and the efficiency of claims or reporting processes
  • Pensions - you'll help clients develop and implement their pension strategy or benefit schemes, consult on how they should manage both liability and asset risks within their pension plans, negotiate with trustees on how to fund schemes, design plans to help employees save for retirement, advise on potential mergers or acquisitions, and account for their pension schemes
  • Reward and Employment - you’ll help companies work out how to incentivise and reward their employees. As part of a multidisciplinary team, you’ll draw on your problem-solving skills to advise clients in this complex and challenging area.

What you’ll gain

You’ll study with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Once, you’ve completed the exams, you’ll then be fully qualified and a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries.

What you need to get in

  • At PwC we no longer use UCAS tariff as an assessment tool for the majority of our undergraduate and graduate opportunities. However, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries require you to have:
  • Minimum Grade C in A Level mathematics or equivalent (Depending on your degree subject this A level requirement may be dropped)
  • A second A Level in any subject at a minimum Grade C

In addition to this UCAS requirement, PwC also require you to have:

  • Achieved or on target for a 2.1 in any degree discipline

If you’re unable to meet these UCAS requirements, we won’t be able to consider you for a role as an Actuary. Therefore, you may want to consider other programmes on offer which don’t have a UCAS tariff requirement.
