Rothesay Actuarial Graduate Opportunities
Permanent roles in Summer / Autumn 2022
At Rothesay, we are striving to transform our industry, creating fundamentally more secure pensions for over 800,000 people – and rising – across the UK. We believe deeply in creating real security for the future and our leadership in finding new and better ways to do that is the key to our success.
To do that, we need the very brightest original thinkers to bring creativity as well as rigour.
Rothesay is built on a multi-talented, multi-disciplined team of just over 350, collaborating directly and with singular focus to shape a dynamic and growing yet lean business. Rothesay is a rewarding place to work, where quality people can thrive and prosper. We pride ourselves on the connections our people build, many of whom have been with us for over ten years.
We believe in creating prosperity and security for the future – for our people as well as our policyholders.
Rothesay is the UK’s largest pensions insurance specialist, purpose-built to protect pension schemes and their members’ pensions. Our singular focus is to secure pension annuities for the future, providing certainty as well as genuine service excellence for every policyholder we look after.
Our conservative investment strategy and prudent underwriting mean we are trusted by some of the UK’s best known companies to provide pension solutions, including Allied Domecq, Asda, British Airways, Cadbury’s, the Civil Aviation Authority, National Grid, the Post Office, Prudential and telent. Underpinned by sophisticated risk management, our expert team never stops developing new ways to drive predictable, dependable returns that minimise risk and create real security.
Today, we manage over £60 billion in assets, secure the pensions of over 800,000 people, and pay out, on average, over £200 million in pension payments each month. We are securing the future for every one of our clients and policyholders, and improving how pensions are delivered as we do it.
We have vacancies in the Pricing and Reinsurance team and the Capital team. The Pricing and Reinsurance team focuses on the pricing, underwriting, negotiation and execution of new pension and reinsurance deals, working with a focus on the largest deals in the market. The Capital team focuses on life insurance reporting and the monitoring of regulatory and economic capital, the computation of balance sheet impacts for a wide range of prospective asset and liability transactions, and delivering strategic regulatory-driven projects.
Candidates would be expected to study for the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA) qualification with an expected specialism in pensions or life insurance. When you join us, your work will be highly varied involving all aspects of pensions and insurance actuarial work, and will involve significant interaction both internally with other teams and disciplines throughout the business, and externally, with clients and advisors. You will need to be able to balance teamwork, intellectual curiosity and leadership potential with a passion for excellence and an interest in the financial markets.
