Job Description Apply: Actuarial Analyst

As the newly appointed Actuarial Analyst, you will have the opportunity to implement these cutting-edge initiatives that will change how the reporting team works. You are also expected to identify ideas on an ongoing basis for improving business performance and processes and adding value.

Whilst initially joining our client's Reporting and Financial Management team within Finance, you will be provided with opportunities to explore the business by working in various teams within the Finance department through our rotation programme. You will also be supported in gaining your professional actuarial qualification with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries ("IFoA").

The Actuarial Reporting team ensures that the monthly and semi-annual actuarial reporting is prepared in a timely and accurate manner and that these are appropriately analysed, explained, and communicated both within the business and externally. The team also provides support for ad hoc actuarial investigations and projects as necessary.

Your role will entail:

  • Support the preparation of internal monthly reporting and analysis, including information for year-end and half-year reports
  • Support the preparation of information for use in hedging, forecasting and planning
  • Identify and support the implementation of improvements to the reporting processes
  • Ensure controls and reviews are followed, following up with senior team members if there are any issues
  • Ensure documentation is kept up to date
  • Support the Head of Actuarial Reporting in other ad hoc actuarial investigations and other projects as they arise

The other sub-teams into which you may rotate include:

Automation and Insight

In this role, you will contribute to the overall success of the business by ensuring processes are efficient, operate as intended, and allow management to make decisions based on clear and actionable insights. You will act as a support function by focusing on the removal of manual and labour-intensive steps in the reporting process, replacing these with more suitable technologies.

Financial Actuarial and Capital

You will have the opportunity to enhance assumptions and capital framework. Your key responsibilities will be the management and development of the statistical model used to understand the risks faced and how they impact the balance sheet (the Internal Model, or "IM"), and the management and oversight for reserving/ valuation assumptions and judgements.

Actuarial Modelling and Data

You will play a part in maintaining and developing the principal actuarial projection and valuation model and support other staff in the understanding and efficient use of the liability modelling systems. You will manage the modelling of new business and new reinsurance treaties, validations, the delivery of updates to policy data for financial reporting, actuarial support for related projects, and the support for wider projects through data analytics.

Business Planning and Forecasting: You will deliver the business plan and weekly solvency estimate to allow senior management to make timely and informed decisions regarding the management and optimisation of the balance sheet. The team works closely with the Strategy team as well as Business Partnering and liaises directly with other functions such as Investments and Origination.

Business Partnering: In this role, you will work closely with "the front office" (Investment and Origination team) to produce or validate analysis of the financial implications of asset trades/transfers and understand the features and balance sheet impacts of potential new business. The team also plays an important role in Matching Adjustment ("MA") compliance, which gives relief for holding certain long-term assets that match the cash flows of its obligations to ensure the business operates the MA Fund in line with the MA Application and PRA regulatory requirements.
