Recruiting the right people is essential to our success
Recruiting the right people is essential to the success of the IFoA. Our values are important to us and are at the heart of everything we do.
Our values are:
- Member-focused: We put members at the heart of everything we do
- Action-oriented: We work hard, we work smart, and we take pride in getting things done, valuing action over perfection
- Forward- and outward-looking: We’re always looking to be bold and improve, innovate and take the next step
- Team-driven: We work in partnership, advancing together as one IFoA.
Diversity and inclusion
We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in all our policies, practices and procedures. This applies to all of the IFoA’s professional dealings with its employees, members, volunteers and third parties. Recognising and embracing the unique and diverse talents of our workforce, members and volunteers is fundamental to the success of our organisation.
“With the integrity of the public sector and the dynamism of the private sector, the IFoA is somewhere where you can make a meaningful contribution whilst working in a progressive, forward looking, and growing business with great opportunities for development.”
Cargill Sanderson, IFoA General Counsel Coordinator, General Counsel

Supporting our employees at work
Agile working schemes
We recognise that agile working has many benefits and will support agile working requests wherever we can.
We recognise that the ability to achieve our organisational objectives depends on the physical and mental wellbeing of our employees. Workplace wellbeing includes the physical and cultural environment of the organisation as well as policies, practices and procedures that guide our work.
We strive to provide a workplace environment that values and enhances the physical and mental health and wellbeing of our employees. We achieve this through our Wellbeing Policy and related working practices, our network of Mental Health First Aiders, our annual Wellbeing Week to help maintain a focus on health and wellbeing, and by working in partnership with our occupational health providers.
It is important to us that our employees have a voice and a way to raise any issues, concerns or matters of interest with our Executive Leadership Team. For this purpose, the IFoA has an elected employees representative body called ‘Employee Forum’. Members are drawn from across the organisation and meet on a regular basis to share and discuss issues that may have been raised by IFoA employees.
Social life at the IFoA/Charity Committee
Our employees often socialise outside of the workplace and, when conditions allow, there are various social events in the evening or at lunch time such as the IFoA book club or trips to the theatre or cinema. We also have a Charity Committee which organises activities across the IFoA to raise funds for charitable causes.
"At the IFoA there is a great sense of community amongst colleagues as you are working towards the same goal - to create the best experience for our members."

We have made it through 2020 but the COVID-19 crisis continues to have a significant impact on individuals, societies, businesses and the wider economy across the globe. Navigating the world post COVID-19 in an uncertain and highly unstable time brings along many uncertainties, challenges and exciting opportunities. Hence the theme of this year’s IFoA Asia Conference Webinar Series is “Risk. Adapt. Thrive.”
In April 2021, the CMI Income Protection Committee published Working Paper 149, which detailed the changes to analysis methodology for the Income Protection Investigation and the impact of past data issues. This webinar will provide an overview of the changes in the analysis approach and discuss the adjustments to the IP11 claim inceptions graduations.
Internal audit is often the Cinderella of the audit world. It’s a regulatory requirement for insurance companies to have an internal audit function, so why not make it as useful as possible? This session will look at how to link an internal audit plan to the risk register, and how that helps audit committees and boards to spot problems and fix them.
Climate change is one of the greatest risks facing our world today. Addressing it will require multi-faceted solutions. Through this panel session, we will explore the different levers that can be used to meet net-zero targets including climate science and data, government engagement, and mobilising green finance.
