Career opportunities for recent graduates and students

First Actuarial can help you grow into your true potential

The pull of big brands and small start-ups can prove tempting, but student and graduate roles in medium-sized firms like First Actuarial provide earlier exposure to the experience and skill sets that will shape your career.

Our work culture is one of individual responsibility. Students and recent graduates thrive on the opportunities we give them, while drawing on the support of more senior colleagues whenever they need it.

First Actuarial offers openings for recent graduates and students in these teams:

  • Actuarial and investment roles
  • Pensions administration roles
  • Graduate IT jobs

First Actuarial is a brilliant place to work – I absolutely love it here. It’s a great company for professional development. They give me real responsibility, which is the best way to learn. Everyone will take the time to help you when you need it, which wouldn’t happen as easily in the larger consultancies. And yet the company is big enough to offer a structured training programme and a broad range of work experience with very little repetition. I can’t speak highly enough of them. To final year students I would say, don’t give it a second thought, just apply.

First Actuarial case studies

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.”



The RSPB was determined to minimise the impact of its new defined contribution scheme on employees, and appointed First Actuarial to support the transition and select a provider with strong ethical values.

“I would definitely recommend working with First Actuarial. Their consultants went over and above the call of duty to make sure the project progressed smoothly.”


Bolton Cares

Taking responsibility for care services previously provided by a local authority, Bolton Cares turned to First Actuarial for help in setting up a competitive and affordable DC pension scheme for its staff.

“They’ve been really helpful and professional throughout the project, and we’ll use them again if we need specialist advice.”
