The Role:

This role is open to part-qualified actuaries, candidates looking for an entry level actuarial position, or someone with quantitative practical work experience at this level.

The implementation of new risk models requires interaction with Finance Reporting and the IT developers who own the underlying engine, as well as the users who run the tools.
  • The production of monthly and ad-hoc market data packs, with responsibility for delivering accurate and timely reports to end users across M&G.
  • The refresh of Group-wide Operating Standards for the production of Solvency II regulatory capital, including ensuring these keep up to date with change in the regulatory environment.

Key Responsibilities for this role:
  • Work collaboratively with colleagues and take personal accountability to maintain and enhance controls you are responsible for to support improvement of the overall control environment, customer outcomes and a reduction in M&G's operational risk.
  • Support the continued development and calibration of risk models and simulation engines within the Solvency II Internal Capital Model.

  • Part-qualified actuary, candidates looking for an entry level actuarial position or quantitative specialist with similar work experience.
  • Basic knowledge of financial markets and modelling methods applied to them.
  • Understanding of statistics and statistical methods.
  • Knowledge and experience of Microsoft Office packages, e.g. Excel.
  • Knowledge of Monte Carlo capital modelling would be beneficial.
  • Some experience of the practical implementation of theoretical solutions, for example, in Excel/VBA, MATLAB, Python.
  • Some experience of successful delivery in pressured environments with the ability to cope with competing demands.
  • Some experience of developing working relationships with key stakeholders.
  • Some experience of presenting findings and results, and building an understanding of audience-specific communication requirements.
  • Some experience of capital modelling would be beneficial.
