Eight Week Paid Summer Internship

Amersham, Bromsgrove, Cheltenham, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool & London

Barnett Waddingham is the UK’s largest independent provider of actuarial, administration and consultancy services, spread across seven offices throughout the UK. We look for graduates with good degrees who are eager to join a firm where they can make a difference. Graduates who are ambitious and who value the chance to join the partnership in due course are very much the focus of our actuarial recruitment.

Actuaries come from different academic backgrounds but share a love of maths even if they haven’t done a maths degree. In an increasingly complex financial world where greater emphasis is being placed on risk management the actuarial qualification is a gateway to many different opportunities and careers. The qualifications are recognised globally and the skills you acquire in attaining them will enable you to work anywhere in the world.

A very important part of an actuary’s role is communication, whether this is to convey a technical issue in simple terms to meet the needs of the audience or at senior management level dealing with high-level strategic decisions.

We run an eight week paid summer internship programme that offers first class training and work experience enabling you to gain an excellent understanding of the role an actuary undertakes within the firm, how our business operates and the opportunity to learn from our Partners and team members.

You will be given real responsibility to contribute to client work, in addition you will get the opportunity to spend time in the various practice areas as well as complete a project. You will be assigned a personal mentor and supervisor who will help and support you throughout the programme to ensure that you gain the best experience possible. 

 Many students who have completed our summer programme have gone on to develop their career with us after university as part of our Actuarial graduate programme.

However, it’s not all work at Barnett Waddingham as we have a good work/ life balance and you will have the opportunity to take part in social and sports events.

We have opportunities in our offices in Amersham, Cheltenham, Bromsgrove, Leeds, Liverpool, Glasgow and London. We are holding assessment days during February at some of these locations.
