What’s it like?

Rachel was impressed by the variety of learning opportunities she had in her first year with us. Hear more about her experience in our Actuarial – Pensions graduate programme.

How’s it structured?

After an EY induction, you’ll get straight to work on real client projects. Your team will be on hand to support as you contribute to actuarial audits that review company pension accounts, help create client reports on the key pensions-related merger and acquisitions risks and much more. By your second year, you may even be responsible for supervising and reviewing the work of junior consultants in the team.

Over the two years, you’ll study for actuarial professional exams (supported by a generous study allowance), and have many opportunities to join informal training events and conferences, too. And, by the end of the programme you’ll have a firm understanding of how to use analysis and modelling techniques to understand our clients’ business and the issues affecting them. Best of all, you’ll may be well on your way to gaining the knowledge and experience needed to lead projects and people, and progress to a Senior Consultant position.

What about the extras?

Discounted gym memberships, interest-free loans, generous pension plans – there are lots of perks to being a grad at EY.
