How's it structured?

First up, you’ll do an EY induction before jumping into the deep end and working on real client projects. Your team will be on hand to support you as you learn to analyse client data, write up findings into reports and create client presentations to communicate EY’s recommendations. By your second year, you may even be responsible for supervising and reviewing the work of junior consultants in the team. You may also have the opportunity to work on projects in other actuarial areas (life insurance and pensions) too.

Throughout the programme, you’ll study for actuarial professional exams (supported by a generous allowance) and have many opportunities to join training events and conferences, too. By the time the graduate programme is over, you’ll have a firm understanding of how to use analysis and modelling techniques in order to understand our clients’ businesses and the issues affecting them. Best of all, you’ll be well on your way to a qualification and gaining the knowledge and experience needed to win business for EY, lead projects and progress to more senior positions.
