Actuarial graduate pathway

The science behind our solutions.

Find a career that exceeds your expectations.

Actuarial. What’s it all about?

Well, in a nutshell, this is about maths. Not the sums you get on Countdown (although if you’re a dab hand at those, that’s a great start). But essentially, this is about the mathematical thinking that underpins everything we do.

From reporting to pricing, from valuations to solvency, and from data to digital, our actuaries have a big say in everything we do.  So if you’re a natural problem-solver and you’d love to be an important part of an important company (we’re the UK’s largest insurer), you’ll find this an extremely empowering place to be.

Applications for the Actuarial graduate pathway are now closed.

Grow with us

We’re looking to find and develop the Actuarial stars of the future. But rather than being just another graduate development programme, here you’ll join us in a permanent role from day one.

As your skills and experience grow, there’ll be lots of development opportunities tailored specifically to you and your ambitions, which will give you the foundations you need to succeed.

You’ll be empowered to be yourself. To take control of your own work and your progression. Show us what you can do, and we’ll be right behind you, giving you more and more responsibility and opportunities to shape your future and that of the industry.

Why Aviva?

You might think we’re just another boring insurance firm, but nothing could be further from the truth. We don’t show up for work in pressed suits and shiny shoes. At Aviva, we’re proud to be different. Proud to say that we’re a diverse mix of cultures, genders, ages, perspectives, and ideas.

Most important of all, we’re an organisation with a purpose. We want to lead the way forward in our sector, which is why we focus on being the best we can be. Every day. Together, we’re building a better tomorrow with a little help – a lot, actually – from our future leaders.

No matter who you are, where you’re from, or what your interests are, you can be sure there’s a place for you at Aviva. We’re passionate and committed, just like you are; we’re the first major insurer worldwide to target Net Zero carbon by 2040 and we’re committed to the community too – we’re aiming for £10bn UK infrastructure and real estate investment by the end of 2023.

What you can expect

On average, you’ll spend between four and five years on the programme, during which time you’ll move to a different actuarial team about every 18 months. These teams cover everything from Healthcare Reporting to Data Science and Digital.

Along the way, it’s likely that you’ll work towards a Level 7 Apprenticeship qualification (equivalent to a Master’s degree), and from there, we’ll give you the support you need to become a fully-qualified actuary – and a leader in the business.

Where you’ll be based

Our Actuarial Graduate Pathways are based in our Bristol, Eastleigh, Norwich and York offices. But you could be based in any of these locations, so it’s important that you’re flexible. You can find out more about each one by clicking the links below.

Wherever you’re based, the likelihood is you’ll balance time in the office with working from home. We call this Smart Working. Three days in the office and two days from home is typical, but this will vary between teams. When you join us, your leader will take time to discuss this with you, and agree what works best for you, your team and the business.

As we adopt this Smart Working approach, it’s important to note that you will still need to live within commuting distance of the relevant office. That way you’ll get to spend time with your team in person, as well as virtually, and get access to the right internal support networks to help you to succeed.

What you’ll need

You’ll either already have a degree or be on track to graduate by the end of Summer 2024 and be available for full-time work from September 2024.

Your degree doesn’t have to be in Actuarial Science, but it must be in a numerical or STEM-related discipline.

You’ll also need to be commercially minded and someone who loves a bit of problem-solving.
