New Graduate – Actuarial Consultant

RPC consulting
Competitive salary

Job description

If you're looking for a predictable career please stop reading now. At RPC Consulting you'll get a whole lot more. Your long-term future is every bit as important to us as it is to you. That’s why our aim is to give you experiences that will stay with you for a lifetime. Through great training and development, you’ll gain a wealth of experience on which to build a rewarding career. You can develop your technical expertise whilst being involved in a product which is really making waves in our industry.

You will work in an innovative, supportive and buzzing atmosphere in the heart of London. As a key member of our team you will play a vital role in meeting the expectations of our clients through delivering high quality cutting-edge solutions.

You will gain experience across a range of general and life insurance actuarial services. In particular, there will be a greater emphasis on modelling challenges faced by insurers, including pricing and capital modelling. You will support clients with developing, parameterising and testing models in either joint client-RPC collaborations or full RPC teams. In this respect, early in your career you will be interacting directly with clients in a technical capacity and gaining a network of contacts.

Training on wider commercial and insurance topics is provided by subject matter experts from within the team. We encourage a collaborative environment where knowledge and new ideas are shared throughout the team regularly. As you progress in your career you will have the opportunity to get involved with presenting ideas and concepts, both internally and externally, to help support this.

You will also receive training through specialist training videos on Tyche, and have the rare opportunity to work closely with the Tyche software developers to not only gain greater insight into the workings of the platform but also have an important role in helping steer the development of the software.

You will gain technical actuarial knowledge through your day-to-day work and by working through the actuarial exams. We provide a competitive actuarial study package including not only study leave, materials and exam allowances, and exam remuneration, but also support from a study mentor.

Start date flexible. We will consider CVs for candidates with immediate availability along with current final year undergraduates (undergraduates available to start September 2018).

Company information

Located in our prestigious offices at Tower Bridge, RPC Consulting is the dynamic, financial consulting arm of RPC, the award-winning London-headquartered law firm.

We help those in insurance and related sectors do things better. We deploy our team of highly skilled actuaries, accountants, MBAs and PhDs - all of whom specialise in insurance - to help our clients get ahead. As management, shareholders and the regulators strive for ever greater insight into the risks firms face, the ability for companies to model risks quickly, flexibly and accurately has never been more important. At RPC Consulting, in addition to our strong, technical and management consulting teams, we utilise our world-class mathematical modelling platform, Tyche, to help firms respond to these challenges.

Our consultants provide a wide range of services not only in traditional actuarial services, both in life and general insurance, but in new innovative modelling solutions. With Tyche we are able to tackle more challenging modelling problems and provide companies with solutions that can be implemented into their daily business discussions by leveraging affordable “commodity” hardware and ground breaking advances in parallel software design.

RPC Consulting offers the potential to work on a new, innovative product, and so has a fresh, dynamic atmosphere. In turn, you will benefit from the security of a large organisation, together with the dynamism of a start-up environment.

The firm now has over 50 people bringing deep insurance knowledge, actuarial science, and software development skills to a growing client base. At RPC Consulting you will have the opportunity to work with a team of highly capable and professional people who are driven to deliver innovative, cutting edge solutions to our clients. We expect great things from our people and, in return, we provide real career development, high quality work, inspiring project teams and excellent reward and recognition programmes.

Critical to our success, people are at the heart of everything we do. We want every member of our team to feel welcome, valued and confident they'll achieve their career objectives here. It's the minimum our employees should expect of us - and it's good for business, too.
