What do actuaries do?

  • Actuaries use numeracy skills to help pension scheme trustees and employers manage their pension schemes. We grapple with huge uncertainties like inflation and manage the risks that can damage people’s lives.

What will I be doing on a day-to-day basis?

  • Although it sounds like a cliché, no two days will be the same. As an actuarial student, you ‘ll be working with a range of clients – both for-profit and not-for-profit – on actuarial calculations, models and client communications.


What do investment consultants do?

  • Investment consultants use numeracy skills and market knowledge to help pension scheme trustees with their investment decisions, balancing returns with the risks that individual schemes can afford to run.

What will I be doing on a day-to-day basis?

  • Again, no two days will be the same. As an investment consultant trainee, you’ll be working with a range of clients – both for-profit and not-for-profit. Very soon, you’ll be managing client relationships, attending client meetings and producing bespoke client advice and reports.
