Job description

As one of the UK's largest Actuarial practices we're market leaders providing insights and solutions for all businesses that face significant and complex risks. We play an important role in supporting clients through uncertain times. Actuaries analyse how future events could affect businesses and we calculate the impact these event could have on our clients. Using our risk and analytical skills and predictive insights, we calculate the impact of changing demographics or legislation on pension schemes, the effects that changes in financial markets have on different organisations, or how likely a business is to be hit by an earthquake. You'll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen. Just as important, you'll develop a flair for presenting your findings in simple, easy-to-understand language. What's more, early client exposure will broaden your experience.

Programme
Through our Black Talent in Business programme you'll complete a 3-day virtual programme, which could lead to an offer of an internship or 11 month placement with the aim of securing a graduate role with us on completing your degree.

What you'll do
During this three-day paid programme you'll get an insight into what a career at PwC could look like, you'll virtually meet mentors and buddies who'll represent the variety of opportunities available across PwC. You'll meet some of our Black colleagues to hear about their own personal career journeys, as well as from some of our networks focussed on Diversity and Inclusion. Through interactive sessions the programme will help you to develop confidence in a business setting and encourage you to bring your whole self to the workplace. At PwC, we nurture an environment where our people can be the best they can be. Our Black Talent in Business programme will be a 3-day paid programme which will be run virtually in Summer 2021.

* Depending on your degree subject this A Level requirement may be dropped.

If you're unable to meet these UCAS requirements, we won't be able to consider you for a role as an Actuary. If you do meet the degree requirement, you may want to consider other programmes on offer which don't have a UCAS tariff requirement.
