Career opportunities in traditional fields and in wider risk management
Actuaries are moving into a wider range of roles within the traditional sectors, for example risk and catastrophe modelling roles within the insurance industry, and they are also moving into wider fields roles outside of these areas. For example, actuaries working in management consultancy are providing advice to diverse organisations such as banks, hospitals and oil companies.
As well as being versatile, the actuarial skill set is well placed to perform senior risk roles and lends itself well to those wishing to become Chief Risk Officers.
If you are an actuary working in “wider fields”, or in a senior risk position, we would love to hear your story, please contact Dawn McIntosh.
Interviews and profiles of actuaries
