A graduate trainee position will enable you to gain relevant experience whilst studying for our exams

When you get your role your employer is likely to:

  • fund your membership and exam fees

  • allow you study days

  • enable you to earn whilst studying

  • provide you with on the job experience around elements of the exam material which will help you work towards your IFoA qualification.

Some students go straight into a trainee position from university.  Others may choose to study for a postgraduate qualification first (although post-graduate qualifications are not required for a trainee role), or take a gap year.  If you take a gap year and you are not actively employed, make sure this time is spent usefully, developing yourself and your skills, and that this is reflected on your CV. 

The Directory of Employers has names, locations and contact details of companies that have indicated that they have actuarial trainee schemes available, as well as information on how to apply.

The more skills you develop, the better your chances of finding an actuarial trainee position.

In addition to developing your skills through work experience, you should look for opportunities for self development through the pursuit of a hobby, by joining a club or society, or by volunteering.  Employers will be looking for business skills, such as communication, leadership and teamwork, as much as for academic qualifications and technical skills.
