Your role at a glance

The L&G Actuarial internship is an 8-week programme, starting in July and finishing in August, during which you will develop your skill set and gain valuable insights and work experience to ultimately decide if a graduate role in this area of the business would interest you.

Please note this role is based in London. 

This internship is a pipeline for our Actuarial Graduate Programme (although successful completion of the summer programme does not guarantee that a graduate role is available). It’s an ideal opportunity for someone looking to gain actuarial experience before applying to our graduate scheme; please consider whether you are truly interested in a career as an Actuary before making your application.

As part of a cohort of interns, you will also have the opportunity to connect with your peers and colleagues though our Future Talent induction, networking opportunities and social events. Joining L&G is the beginning to a future that will be anything but familiar. So take a closer look, get involved, be curious and find out how we will enable you to be at your best no matter who you are.

Please note, we can only accept 1 application per person across all of our intern programmes. Therefore, please think carefully about the programme you intend to apply for because your first application will be considered as your only application. 

We recruit on a rolling basis and expect this vacancy to close before the deadline. To be in with the best chance of securing a role, please submit your application ASAP
