We here at the IFoA exist to promote the actuarial profession and support our members throughout their journey to become an actuarial professional.
The work we do in the careers department helps those specifically at the beginning of their journey, when they are making decisions about their career path – whether it’s getting a job straight from school, or after university, gaining work experience or an internship or helping those looking for a job outside of their home country.
We create material annually to help students to make decisions and we publicise that information through our careers guides, our website, an app that we are developing this year and social media.
We also develop two directories each year to promote the vacancies that you offer to school leavers or those leaving university.
You can see the huge reach our web pages get and also the reach we receive for content on social media. We also attend around 100 events a year at universities and schools where this collateral is available.

This webinar will provide an update on the emerging thinking around future regulation of DB schemes:
The webinar will discuss the challenges and opportunities schemes face in evaluating end game options, choosing a target state and understanding the impact this strategic decision could have on member outcomes long after the “end state” is reached. Adolfo, Kevin and Rhian bring over 60 years of experience in the industry and a variety of perspectives as scheme actuary, covenant adviser, trustee, de-risking adviser and insurer.
Cash-flow driven investing is a game-changer for DB pension funds navigating their end-game. Suitable for sponsors who want to reduce risks on their balance sheets. And for trustees, it shifts the focus to providing greater certainty of returns, managing funding level volatility and ensuring they have enough income to pay cash-flow requirements.
The talk will provide an understanding of the priorities and relationships between deficit reduction contributions, in the context of wider scheme funding, and different types of value outflow from the employer based on the working party’s recently published report.
