My client is a public sector body which provides actuarial advice on a broad range of Insurance issues to government bodies both domestically and internationally, as well as private sector clients on governmental policies.

In an ever changing world the work that you would be doing has increasing significance. Every project is unique and tailored to each client. The type of work you can expect to get involved in, includes working on sovereign disaster financing on initiatives to protect the UK, supporting the NHS on dispute resolutions and other health care provisions, advising a wide range of Government Departments on their insurance issues and working with Academy Schools to find alternatives to commercial insurance for the niche risks they face.

Rather than looking for specific Reserving/Capital/Pricing experience, the nature of this team would suit someone who has broad experience and who is able to draw from various aspects of things you have worked on, in order to apply them to something completely new.

As well as a unique experience, you will also enjoy an unrivalled work/life balance. With flexible working on top of a 36 hour week, you will never have to work long hours. In fact, if you ever work an hour late to finish something off, you can start an hour later the following week to get the time back. Alternatively, you could deliberately work a few extra hours in exchange for taking two days off a month.

Salary depends on experience, but working for this organisation you will also be entitled to the Civil Service pension scheme which works out to be ~23% of your basic salary. Public sector salaries will not match what you can earn in the private sector, but the experience you will gain and the potential lifestyle benefits makes this a fantastic opportunity depending on your circumstances.

Please note an application deadline of Friday 15th November - however if you are interested please contact me beforehand to discuss the full process -, 0207 324 0568
