Happy staff, happy clients –
Make First Actuarial your next career move

We provide accelerated pension career development for our staff, in close-knit teams. This gives all employees a rich mix of accountability and expertise from day one. Our clients value this, and our high staff retention rate is just one of the secrets of our stellar growth.

We reward hard work and enjoy each other’s successes. And at the same time, roles with good work-life balance are more than a talking point at First Actuarial – they’re a day-to-day reality for all our staff.

Our offices – located in Basingstoke, Leeds, Manchester, Peterborough and Tonbridge – offer high-quality and relaxed working environments.

Are you a good fit for First Actuarial?

We have more than 250 employees, and like most medium-sized firms, we make bold claims about going the extra mile for our clients. But in our case, that cliché really holds true.

We look for individuals who are self-motivated and can rise to the challenge of working for a rapidly-growing business. What everyone at First Actuarial shares is a hands-on approach and can-do attitude that puts clients’ needs first.

The company has got a way of doing things that I like. Having worked for a big competitor, I know there’s a lot we do well. We focus on making the client happy and doing things right, rather than budgets and profit margins. There’s a genuine feeling that managers and owners care about the staff, and the work-life balance is much better than elsewhere. It’s a great place to work, with a friendly atmosphere, and you don’t have to play games to move your career forward. People are appreciated for what they do at First Actuarial, and not what they appear to be doing.

First Actuarial Case Studies


As a result of an unusual clause in their trust deeds, Trustees of the pension scheme sponsored by the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC) funded their liabilities on a buy-out basis.

“First Actuarial are very proactive. They respond quickly and get things done. They have proved to be competent and conscientious, and have a very professional and personable approach to business relations.”


Royal Mail

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) enlisted the help of First Actuarial when Royal Mail proposed replacing its Defined Benefit pension fund with individual Defined Contribution arrangements.

“I can’t speak highly enough about First Actuarial – their people have been brilliant. The journey has been inspirational, nothing but a positive experience.”


The Kennel Club

Concerned about the risk of an Employer contribution increase as a result of high liabilities, Trustees of the Kennel Club Pension Fund turned to First Actuarial.

“They’re extremely professional and helpful. Their input always seems sound, logical and well presented. First Actuarial handled the transition well, they provide us with helpful guidance, and have delivered what they promised when they pitched for the work.”
