Lydia Dutton

Associate Consultant

LCP

I completed a summer internship in LCP’s Pensions Actuarial department during my penultimate year at university. I decided to spend my summer working at LCP because I was impressed by all the personal and professional development opportunities available and because it seemed like it would be a really great place to work. The interview process was much less stressful than other assessment days I attended (it was actually enjoyable!) and this meant that I had no hesitation in choosing LCP over their competitors.

The internship was structured very well and I thoroughly enjoyed my nine weeks in Winchester. We were provided with an introductory week of training that really helped me gain confidence before taking on work within the office.

The work was interesting and challenging and I felt as though I was contributing to the team from day one. I was able to work on a variety of different clients and learnt so much about the pensions industry and the services LCP offers its clients across all its departments; it was a real insight into the actuarial profession and confirmed that it was the career path that I wanted to pursue.

Alongside enjoying the work, I also really appreciated all the social opportunities available at LCP: I attended the LCP Summer Ball, a team trip to an escape room, and the office ‘sports day’, as well as other ad-hoc events.

I gained so much from my nine weeks in terms of technical skills and personal development; and also a graduate job offer which I happily accepted.
