As one of the UK’s largest Actuarial practices we're market leaders providing insights and solutions for all businesses that face significant and complex risks. We play an important role in supporting clients through uncertain times. Actuaries analyse how future events could affect businesses and we calculate the impact these events could have on our clients. Using our risk and analytical skills and predictive insights, we calculate 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. You’ll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen. Just as important, you’ll develop a flair for presenting your findings in simple, easy‑to‑understand language. What’s more, early client exposure will broaden your experience.
Our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
What you'll do
As an Actuary in 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, using financial modelling and analytical techniques to develop reward structures that support business strategy, drive appropriate behaviours, and are acceptable to shareholders and employees alike.
What you'll gain
Discover what a career with us is all about, and boost your employability. You’ll find out first-hand if this is the career for you – do well, and you could be offered a graduate job. Working alongside specialists, you’ll work on client projects to give you the best insight into what we’re about. You’ll have the opportunity to build networks with your colleagues and peer group.
What you'll need
You'll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. We determine whether you're on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study.
Although we do not look for any specific degree or A Level subjects, please note that the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) offers some guidance to those considering a career as an Actuary. The IFoA qualification syllabus is rigorous and the examinations are highly demanding, so they recommend applicants have a maths-based degree. If you do not have a maths-based degree, they recommend you take one of their non-member exams to prepare you for the IFoA qualification process.
