About the Actuarial Analyst programme
We are now recruiting for Actuarial Analysts looking to pursue the Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) qualification. This is a globally recognised and portable qualification awarded by a highly-regarded profession, meaning that successful candidates will have the opportunity to gain a meaningful qualification while earning and quickly developing some great skills and experience.
This programme is perfect for talented, highly numerate school leavers who want to develop a career in areas that are widely anticipated to be in high demand in future - these include finance, data analysis, coding and modelling.
APR's actuarial analyst scheme provides a fantastic start to your career, without the need to have been to university:
For more information about the CAA qualification, see www.caa-global.org or https://www.actuaries.org.uk/membership/types-membership/certified-actuarial-analyst-caa-membership.
Applications We welcome applications from school leavers to start in our September intake; we are also happy to take applications from students who have completed year 1 of A-levels (or equivalent), looking towards a September 2021 start date.
Applicants should be highly numerate and analytical, with good communication skills, and be enthusiastic to learn. You should also possess the following minimum level of academic qualifications (please ensure your application makes clear that you meet or are predicted to meet these, or their equivalents if you have studied under a different qualifications regime):
• 128 UCAS points (equivalent to ABB at A-Level).
• Grade A at A-level in a Maths-related subject.
• Grade 7 at GCSE in English Language.
To apply for the apprenticeship scheme, please provide a copy of your CV and a covering letter, either via our website (https://aprllp.com/working-for-apr/actuarial-analyst/actuarial-analyst-apply-now/) or sent to email@example.com.
We expect the covering letter of successful candidates to demonstrate a genuine appetite for working towards a professional qualification, a desire to excel in a mathematically challenging and technically demanding role, and a clear sense of why you think APR is a good match for your abilities and ambitions; applications without a covering letter touching on these areas are likely to be rejected. Successful candidates will be pro-active, well-rounded individuals, so evidence of non-academic / extra-curricular interests will be beneficial.
