Hello, we're the Pension Protection Fund. We protect the futures of millions of people in the UK who belong to defined benefit pension schemes. Our members rely on us to look after their pensions if their employers go bust and the pension schemes cannot afford to pay what they promised.

We are now accepting applications for our 2019 Actuarial internship programme. This is a 13 month programme, starting July 2019 and finishing August 2020. It is open to current students who would like to do a placement year after the second year of their degree course.

*Please note that this programme is only available to current undergraduates.*

This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with a strong academic record and demonstrable communication and stakeholder management skills to work within a high profile financial services organisation. We expect interested applicants to have numerical aptitude, ideally with a high A Level grade in Mathematics (or equivalent) and be studying towards an Actuarial-related degree on track for a 2.1 classification or above. A good competency of Microsoft Office packages (especially Excel) would be of added interest.

You will be a valued member of the team, working to clear deadlines on work that makes tangible differences to our organisation. You will have access to a wide range of stakeholders across the organisation and be given responsibility for a variety of work including running internal models and valuation programmes; as well as the opportunity to sense-check the results and suggest implementing improvements to models and processes.

In return, we offer continual learning and development opportunities, a friendly and vibrant working environment and competitive salary and benefits.

We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.

Deadline for applications: Friday 22 February 2019
