Graduate, Actuarial, Pensions, London, 2018
The PwC Deal
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. Your hard work will be rewarded with a competitive salary and a personally tailored benefits package.
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.
Using complex financial and statistical theories to calculate the likelihood of events - anything from a natural disaster to a wholesale IT system failure - you'll work out what that means financially for clients. It's highly technical work and it's made all the more challenging by the fact that you'll have to present your complex findings in simple, easy to understand ways. There are two business areas you can choose from, Actuarial Services and Actuarial People and Organisations, both are among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.
People and Organisation
You'll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multi-national organisations to smaller UK-focused businesses, advising them on how best to achieve their objectives in relation to their pension/benefit schemes. You’ll consult on a spectrum of issues including redesign of pension benefits, de-risking legacy pension schemes, negotiating with trustees on how to fund schemes, potential Mergers or Acquisitions, and the impact of legislative changes. The key is to help clients manage the risks within their pension schemes while also achieving their long-term goals.
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*
- A second A Level in any subject at a minimum Grade C
* Depending on your degree subject this A level requirement may be dropped.
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 are 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.
