🚀 Placement Program


Rolling basis


Get to know us, our clients and start learning more about yourself. As a placement student in our Actuarial & Risk team, you'll join us for 12 months for an opportunity to get stuck in with real responsibility, gain an insight into life as a trainee and fast track to a graduate role.

Our Advisory Actuarial practice is comprised of around 45 individuals led by two partners, who work closely with other teams within Grant Thornton around the UK, as well as Grant Thornton International. Our clients are typically insurance companies and pension funds; however we also work with clients from sectors such as statistical analysis, modelling and predictive analytics. There’ll definitely be challenges along the way, as you explore different businesses to identify and analyse areas vulnerable to risk. But you’ll be supported and able to meet each one with a solution. That’s how you excel here.

Actuarial & Risk consultancy is about quantifying risk for companies using different scenarios and working out how to mitigate it. We use our analytical skills to provide financial and risk management advice to our clients. In addition to the traditional actuarial services (business strategy, price modelling, profit testing, closed fund transfers etc.), we also assist our clients to model complex liabilities and investments, implement big data, predictive analytics, and machine learning solutions. The work is varied, and no two assignments are the same.
