By the very nature of your role (whether you are an individual who supports the IFoA as a volunteer (member or non member), or in any other role), you will have access to information and material which is confidential.
Your respect for the confidential nature of this information and material, and the fact that it has been shared with you, is important to protect the integrity of the IFoA
We ask that you keep this at the forefront of your mind when carrying out your role/task, ensuring that all confidential material and information is treated with the upmost care. Those of you who are our members will be aware of their obligations of confidentiality under the Actuaries' Code.
It may be that we will require some volunteers and those undertaking paid roles to enter into a more formal confidentiality agreement as and where appropriate
Your IFoA Executive contact or Chair (if applicable) will raise any additional requirements with you if necessary and indeed if you have any queries, or are in any doubt about whether something is confidential, please refer the question to them.
If you have enquiries about volunteering please contact the Engagement team
The Engagement team will respond to your email within three working days and often sooner.
