We are currently recruiting for new talent into our Actuarial departments in Aviva Life UK based in York. Rich in ancient history, romantic ambience and fun activities, York is the perfect location. With its’ vibrant café culture, exquisite architecture, tangle of quaint cobbled streets, iconic York Minster and a wealth of visitor attractions, York is a flourishing city, just two hours by train from London.

We want to offer you the opportunity of a career with us at a time when our business is embedding Solvency II. With hard work successful applicants will have numerous opportunities to learn, network, develop their skills and make a significant contribution to the production of actuarial results, as well as a portfolio of developments to key actuarial models.

About the role

Joining our highly capable and motivated Actuarial Reporting and Development function, you’ll be responsible for a wide range of activity. The role will offer excellent career development opportunities to influence the development of actuarial reporting systems and processes and implement changes in assumptions and methodology.

With a focus on both IFRS and Solvency II measures, there are numerous opportunities to present the results of the team’s reporting activity or the model development to senior stakeholders within the Finance function. In particular, with the recent approval of Aviva’s Internal Model in respect of the UK Life business a number of the opportunities will offer direct involvement in the latest actuarial methodologies.

There will be a unique chance to play a leading role in the financial integration work generated from the acquisition of Friends Life, including embedding the Friends Life business on Internal Model, supporting Part VII activity and aligning reporting systems and processes across the two former businesses.

It’s a fast paced, dynamic environment where you’ll use your problem-solving skills and mathematical approach to really make your mark on the UK Life business.

About you

Whether you’re a nearly or newly qualified Actuary, you’ll definitely need expert knowledge and an understanding of actuarial principles, formulae and methodology to join us in this role along with real ambition to drive your career forward. Awareness of the UK Life Insurance Industry and its’ products coupled with an understanding of the actuarial reporting measures, systems and processes is desirable. Excellent communication skills are a must as we’ll look to you to influence stakeholders and manage key relationships. A track record of delivery to tight timescales is critical, and you’ll also need strong prioritisation and planning skills, along with some experience of working with Prophet, ALS or Excel.

As well as a competitive salary, you’ll also receive an excellent holiday allowance, bonus and an enviable pension scheme – as you’d expect from the UK’s largest pension provider.
