Working as an Actuary in Pensions at Isio:

  • Pension schemes are part of the backbone of the UK savings industry – relied on by millions to provide a reliable and secure income in retirement.
  • However, whilst remaining an important part of how organisations pay and reward their employees, they also often pose significant financial risks.
  • Balancing the costs and risks of a pension scheme as well as meeting best practice governance requirements is becoming increasingly complex – yet essential for a pension scheme to succeed. The needs of the industry, individuals and our clients are ever changing.
  • At Isio, we constantly look at ways to innovate and develop new solutions to overcome these challenges through our Actuarial & Consulting services.
  • An actuarial career in pensions requires a high level of both numeracy and communication skills – as well as the enthusiasm and drive needed to gain professional qualifications and succeed in a fast-moving market. Our clients value strong technical knowledge in understanding the required capacity of pension funds
  • Isio’s Actuarial industrial placement programme offers the opportunity to get more insight and build valuable experience of both technical actuarial knowledge and skills and effective workplace skills


  • To apply for this role, you need to be available for full time work from 3 July 2024-20 June 2025 and be attending university for your final year of study in September 2025.
  • We are open to applications from those studying any subject. Studying towards the actuarial exams will require strong mathematical skills and a keen interest in financial concepts.
  • As a people first business personal attributes are just as important as academic qualifications. So, there’s a few things we’re looking for from our graduates including:
  • Enthusiastic team players who are willing to learn and grow.
  • A passion and energy to help us exceed our clients’ expectations and deliver against tight deadlines.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills, a natural curiosity and interest in the business world, and a global, forward-thinking mindset are also key.
  • The ability to maintain a good level of self-discipline and time management
