Actuarial Graduate Development Programme

  • Help insurance firms prepare for every eventuality
  • Gain broad exposure while building specialist expertise
  • Qualify as a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries
  • Enjoy a salary increase each time you pass an exam

This two-year programme is for you if you want a specialist career at the heart of the UK economy. As part of our Insurance Supervision team, you’ll build the skills and experience to protect insurance firms and their policyholders – while benefitting from a real focus on your personal and professional development.

The opportunity

Gaining broad exposure to either the life or general insurance industry, you’ll deliver work that makes the firms we regulate safer and sounder. You’ll learn how to assess the risks they face, and how to advise them on anything from changing demographics and lengthening life spans to new regulations and the likelihood of a natural disaster. Day to day, you’ll be carrying out research and analysis within your risk-specific specialism, meeting with senior clients, preparing succinct reports and making persuasive recommendations.

How you’ll develop

Tailored training and plenty of access to our leading experts will help you develop personal and business skills as well as technical know-how. We’ll also introduce you to the wider work of the Bank and support you through your professional studies with study leave and funding for course materials, tutorials and exam fees.

Who we’re looking for

You’ll need a 2:1 in any subject plus at least 300 UCAS points from three A-levels or equivalent (excluding General Studies). Strong analytical skills are vital too, as you’ll be working with data sources and modelling tools. And of course you’ll need to be a quick learner who has plenty of initiative and drive.
