Actuarial Summer Internship

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Work with local and global companies and help them meet their strategic goals whilst developing skills to kick-start your career.

At EY, no question is too small, too ambitious or too imaginative. We use our curiosity to ask better questions, that inspire better answers. That’s how we build a better working world.

Join us in our Actuarial Non-Life Insurance or Actuarial Life Insurance teams and start contributing to real client projects alongside our teams and Partners. This is your chance to gain hands-on experience in a company that puts your learning first. Your opportunity to work with clients large and small, creating global solutions that make a worldwide impact. Here, your career is truly yours to build. Experience our world. Your way.

The fast-changing world of Actuarial can create lots of opportunity for insurance businesses, but it also creates new risks. We help our clients identify these risks by carrying out complex calculations, asking the right questions, setting priorities and creating action plans for success.

What programmes can you join?

Non-life insurance

Help clients solve complex challenges by identifying and managing risks, mapping out action plans and asking the right questions.

Life Insurance

Bring planning and strategic solutions to clients and help them grow their operations.

Technology in Actuarial

Technology is at the forefront of the way we work. Our proprietary software enhances our ability to deliver market leading insight and we utilise this to assist our clients in modernising their actuarial capabilities. You will be immersed in this technology from day one and will develop the skills to help our clients improve the way they operate in the market.

What will you be doing?

You’ll build a career that’s yours to own. With infinite opportunities to lead, learn and transform, we’ll empower you to build a world as unique as you. You’ll be:

  • Analysing data to identify trends and insights, communicating with clients, writing reports and presenting your work
  • Using the latest technologies to understand and solve client challenges
  • Communicating internally and externally, collaborating to offer clients the best solution
  • Building relationships with colleagues, clients and industry professionals
  • Using your inquisitiveness to drive success

What we are looking for
