Your Directory of Opportunities

The 2019 Directory of Opportunities has been refreshed this September. The Directory still provides you with an overview of our governance structure, plus all the ways you can support the profession and get involved.

The Directory can be used in a number of ways:

  • to help identify how to start your volunteer journey,
  • to identify a next step in your journey, 
  • to discover opportunities for collaborative working, knowledge sharing with other IFoA groups, and to ensure work is not duplicated.

“I have seen the benefits volunteering can bring to the profession, companies and the individual. The role of the actuary is changing with the traditional focus on pensions and insurance shifting into wider fields. Volunteering can put you at the forefront of this change, support lifelong learning, build on existing skills and help develop new ones.”

John Taylor, IFoA President

We have updated a number of sections to make it easier to see the opportunities right for your level of experience, career aspirations and available time. 

The education and exam support section has been redesigned with diagrams to show how volunteers can progress from the volunteer role of marker all the way to module lead. We have also broken the section down to make it clearer which roles are appropriate for students and which roles are appropriate for qualified members.

All current opportunities to get involved in supporting the IFoA are listed on our volunteer vacancies page.

If you are interested in a role which doesn’t currently have a vacancy please contact who can notify you once an opportunity is available. 

If you have any feedback on the directory please get in touch, we would love to hear your thoughts.
