We offer a 12-month placement to students studying for an actuarial degree.
As part of our commitment to supporting young people, we have a strong link with Queen's University, Belfast, and many of our placement students are recruited there. The placement provides the student with an invaluable insight into the world of pensions and the world of work generally.
Each placement student is assigned a mentor to assist in his/her development. The students work on a wide range of pension schemes, supporting experienced colleagues to meet the needs of our clients.
The types of work include:
Valuing the liabilities of pension schemes
Considering the effect of proposed changes in pension schemes to the scheme sponsor and members
Valuing the benefit for an individual pension scheme member
Considering the effect of changes in legislation to the scheme sponsor and members
Valuing the liabilities of pension schemes for corporate transactions and for inclusion in company accounts
Considering the effect of changes to a scheme's investment strategy
We also offer 12-month placements to non-actuarial students. We take students from business and finance degrees to work within our administration department, where they will work on defined benefit, defined contribution and group personal pension schemes.
We advertise for actuarial placement students in the autumn semester each year.
Please check the careers section of our website for details of any placements currently available.
