Helping you find a career in the Actuarial industry

Actuarial science is the science of assessing risk, often in a financial setting, using mathematics and statistics. The sector is responsible for measuring the probability of future events, and what the financial impact of these events might be on a business or on its clients. Many actuaries work within the insurance sector, although there are opportunities in other sectors too. Actuaries in the UK are accredited and regulated by the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA).

Day-to-day tasks for an actuary might include building statistical models to predict risk in areas including insurance, pensions or other areas of finance, and reporting back on findings. The work actuaries do is essential across a number of areas and industries, including those in the financial services sector like investment and banking, and those that are unrelated, like healthcare.

A career in actuarial is well paid, intellectually satisfying, globally recognised, and offers great variety as well as an enviable work/life balance. A specific skillset means that you’re always likely to be in demand – definitely not something everyone can say about their industries!

Types of jobs within actuarial:

Not all of those working in actuarial need to work directly as an actuary. As a Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA), you could work within a team in data analysis, or pricing and financial model in marketing, earning a professional qualification at the same time. It is up to you which of these routes you’d like to take.


Skills & interests required for a career in Actuarial
You’ll need to be extremely proficient in maths to have a career as an actuary. Communication, teamwork and negotiation abilities are also likely to be important, as are very strong computer skills. You will also need to have a highly professional manner, especially if you are regularly meeting with clients or stakeholders.
- Communication
- Data Analysis
- Microsoft Excel
- Numeracy
- Presentation Skills
- Teamwork
Graduate schemes & other typical career progression routes in Actuarial
Graduates who are training to become actuaries are likely to start their careers at a big firm, working either as a risk analyst or an actuarial trainee whilst spending part of their time training to become an associate (AIA/AFA) or a fellow (FIA/FFA) of the profession. The training usually takes between three and six years, and allows those who complete it to work as an actuary around the world.

Once qualified as either an associate or a fellow, progression into management can come relatively quickly. You can then also make the decision to specialise in certain area if you wish, making your skills more niche and therefore more likely to be sought-after by employers.
Tips for getting into the field
Actuarial is a highly competitive field, and one that requires an extremely strong skillset - so it’s worth knowing what employers will look for when you’re applying for roles.

Obviously, a strong head for maths and a clear and defined logical approach are both essential, as are proven IT skills.

There are also a large number of general, non-industry-related things that you can do to put yourself in a good position to start applying for jobs. These include:


  • Tailoring your CV for each specific role, making sure you focus on previous experience and relevant skills


  • Think about your degree choice - there are certain universities and degree courses which offer exemptions from certain IFoA professional qualification exams - you can find a list of IFoA-accredited institutions here


  • Work experience – this is a no-brainer: as well as ensuring that you’ve experienced the field before you start applying for jobs within it, it’ll show that you’re committed and allow you to start acquiring the practical skills you’ll need in your future job


  • Take on similar roles – for example assistant roles within the insurance sector, during holidays or whilst you apply for higher-level roles right after graduation


  • See what the top companies in the field require – start by looking for case studies from the big firms, and note what backgrounds and skills their current employees have


  • Use your contacts – university professors, those you met on work experience, people you can approach through social media or LinkedIn – they’re all potentially the stepping stone to your next role, and they might very well be happy to help you

How much can graduates earn in Actuarial?
Wages in actuarial are similar to those in related industries such as accountancy and audit. Graduates working as actuaries are likely to earn between £25,000 and £35,000, with an average salary of £32,000. This can rise to more than £60,000 with 10 to 15 years of experience.
What qualifications do I need for a career in Actuarial?
Mathematics and statistics degrees are the best training for a job in actuarial. Graduates in mathematics-based subjects such as finance or economics are also suited to positions in the sector, especially if modules that focus on statistics and probability have been taken. If your degree isn’t in a mathematics-based subject, you will need to have at least a B in A-level maths.

Most actuaries will have studied the following subjects:

  • Accountancy

  • Finance

  • Management

  • Business

  • Mathematics

  • Economics

  • Statistics

  • Computer science

  • Chemistry

  • Physics



Undergraduate and masters degrees in actuarial science are also available at many universities.

The Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) qualification is designed to give you a solid foundation in actuarial techniques, and is the qualification you’ll need to pursue if you want to become an actuary. You can find more information via the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA).
