Looking for a new challenge as you work towards qualification as an actuary? A career at the Phoenix Group could be just what you've been looking for!

The Role:

Under the guidance of experienced team members and qualified actuaries, you’ll contribute to the ongoing workload of our actuarial teams, whilst at the same time studying for the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries fellowship examinations in line with an agreed study plan. Working across finance, actuarial, risk and customer functions, with rotations between departments, your development plan will focus on preparing you for the role of a qualified actuary by acquiring the necessary level of job skills and actuarial techniques needed to successfully progress.

What we’re looking for:

As a part-qualified actuarial student (having completed all Core Technical subjects) with relevant industry experience, you should have an excellent degree of analytical expertise and technical know-how. Ideally, you’ll also have a good working knowledge of life products, Solvency II concepts and an awareness of risk management techniques. Change-oriented and commercially aware, with the ability to produce high-quality reports and add tangible value to technical discussions, you must be able to work under pressure to tight deadlines and to prioritise work effectively. Alongside this, we also expect strong time management and relationship building skills, with a particular emphasis on effectively communicating across a variety of stakeholders, ranging from senior management to junior trainees.

It’s important that you can quickly understand the wider commercial context of the financial information which you’re analysing and can communicate effectively with those around you; this job is definitely not for those who want to crunch numbers in isolation! We expect our actuarial teams to be inquisitive, to challenge the status quo and to be collaborative in their approach, and to apply their common sense to a problem to arrive at an appropriate solution.

If you can demonstrate that you fit our requirements, then in return, you can expect an excellent benefits package, full study support for your remaining fellowship exams and real opportunity for career growth. Phoenix Group has a strong culture of personal development and employee engagement - we care about the progression and fulfilment of our people, and if there’s something you need to help develop your skills to get you ready for even more exposure as you move towards qualified status, we’re keen to work with you to make that happen.
