Graduate programme

Our graduate training programme is underpinned by a development framework that broadens and deepens your knowledge. You'll learn from hands-on coaching and an outstanding variety of work, picking up business, personal and technical skills you can use across the network, and throughout your career.

Actuarial

Actuaries work with uncertainty. Join us and you’ll help clients analyse how future events could affect them. This could be anything from a corporate takeover to a major natural disaster. You might be calculating the impact of changing demographics or legislation on pension schemes; the effects that changes in financial markets have on different organisations; or how likely a business is to be hit by an earthquake.

People and Organisation - Pensions

You’ll learn how to use complex financial and statistical theories to weigh up the risks and estimate the odds of what might happen. Just as important, you’ll develop a flair for presenting your findings in simple, easy‑to‑understand language. What’s more, early client exposure will broaden your experience. There are two business areas you can choose from – both among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.

What you’ll gain

You’ll study with the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries. Once you’ve completed the exams, you’ll then be fully qualified and a Fellow of the Institute of Actuaries.

What you’ll need

At PwC we no longer use UCAS tariff as an assessment tool for the majority of our undergraduate and graduate opportunities. However, the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries require you to have

  • A minimum Grade C in A Level mathematics or equivalent*

  • A second A Level in any subject at a minimum Grade C

  • In addition to this UCAS requirement, PwC also require you to have achieved or on target for a 2.1 in any degree discipline

If you’re unable to meet these UCAS requirements, we won't be able to consider you for a role as an Actuary. If you do meet the degree requirement, you may want to consider other programmes on offer which don't have a UCAS tariff requirement.

* Depending on your degree subject this A Level requirement may be dropped.
