ACTUARY JOBS FAQs
An actuary professional's salary will depend on several factors, including location, expertise and the job profile itself. As an example, however, an actuarial graduate working in life insurance could typically expect to earn £35,500 a year in London, or closer to £30,000 in the North. These salaries are also comparable for general insurance specialists.
On the other end of the scale, senior actuary professionals are easily able to command six-figure salaries. A chief actuary could earn over £200,000 per annum if working in London, while a partner’s salary could exceed £300,000.
Most professionals who enter actuarial work are graduates – usually those with degrees in economics, maths, finance, business and in some cases science or engineering. Furthermore, employers will generally choose candidates with a first or second-class honours classification, although work experience will also be a consideration.
To work as an actuary, it is crucial to have a strong command of numeracy and analytics. This will ideally be supported by practical IT skills and the ability to verbally communicate complex concepts. You’ll also be expected to write clear and concise reports, so a good level of writing competency will be helpful.
Ideally, you will also be driven and independent, with a strong desire to learn new skills and explore business opportunities.
