MPS is seeking a non-life insurance actuarial analyst making good progress towards qualifying as an actuary.

The role will be primarily focused on reserving. However, the reserving process is annual which means there is a lot of opportunity to become involved in capital modelling and to contribute to strategic projects.

This role will work closely with experienced actuaries across reserving and capital modelling.

MPS’s Actuarial Development Scheme provides a study package for the UK actuarial exams which includes up to 40 days leave per annum and reimbursement for exams, tutorials and study materials. These benefits are subject to meeting the exam progression and work performance requirements of the scheme.

Main Responsibilities
  • Assist in performing annual reserve reviews including data preparation, modelling, reporting and interpreting and communicating results.
  • Work with actuarial colleagues to deliver the annual capital model update and to continually improve the capital model including parameterisation and validation.
  • Ensure that the quality of data used in the actuarial processes is of the highest standard and reconciles to source data from the data warehouse
  • Stay abreast of best practice to ensure that all actuarial work is of the highest standard and improve the use and understanding of actuarial analysis within MPS
The Ideal Candidate
  • Numerical degree
  • Making good progress to becoming a Fellow of the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (or equivalent)
