Our Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You’ll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
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.
In Pensions, you’ll work with a variety of companies, from large multinationals to private listed businesses. Using our market‑leading pensions analytics tool and range of expertise, you’ll help clients develop and implement their pension strategy or benefit schemes, consult on how they should manage both liability and asset risks within their pension plans, negotiate with trustees on how to fund schemes, design plans to help employees save for retirement and advise on potential mergers or acquisitions.
What you’ll gain
Discover what a career with us is all about, and boost your employability. You’ll find out first-hand if this is the career for you - do well, and you could be offered a graduate job. Working alongside specialists, you’ll work on client projects to give you the best insight into what we’re about. You’ll have the opportunity to build networks with your colleagues and peer group.
What you 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 B
You’ll need to be in your penultimate year of an undergraduate or postgraduate degree; or
You’ll need to be in your final year of an undergraduate degree with a one year postgraduate place confirmed; and
You’ll need to have or be on course for a 2.1 degree or above in any subject. We determine whether you're on course for a 2.1 based on the grades you achieved in your last completed year of academic study.
* Depending on your degree subject this A Level requirement may be dropped.
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.
