I am looking for Actuarial Trainees to join a major life Insurance business based in Edinburgh. The purpose of the role is to assist in the provision of actuarial and analytical services required by the Group in the distribution, marketing and administration of its long term business.

You will work alongside experienced actuaries and undertake technical analysis using complex actuarial and analytical techniques in accordance with agreed guidelines and methodology. With hard work you will have great opportunities to learn, network and develop your skills within an outstanding business based in Scotland.

I have got several positions available to rotate around different departments in the business. I believe these rotations benefit trainees by giving them broader business experience, which should help in both their future career and their exam progress.

Person specification:

  • Understanding of the career path / qualifications and development needs associated with this role and a willingness to invest time into achieving the required qualifications
  • Degree in Maths / Statistics or similar relevant subject, ideally a 2:1 or better
  • Ability to challenge decisions that are not felt to fully take account of risk or TCF principles
  • Good verbal, written and listening communication skills
