Summer Internship, Actuarial, Pensions, Reading, 2018
No matter which area of the business you choose to join, all routes offer the same deal. The opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life.
Running during the summer, our 8 week Summer Internships offer high calibre students the opportunity to experience work and life at PwC, and gain a valuable insight into our business and culture. You'll work alongside graduate trainees and experienced professionals on live and interesting client projects. You will be doing real work on real clients so be prepared to get stuck in.
Using complex financial and statistical theories to calculate the likelihood of events - anything from a natural disaster to a wholesale IT system failure - you'll work out what that means financially for clients. It's highly technical work and it's made all the more challenging by the fact that you'll have to present your complex findings in simple, easy to understand ways. There are two business areas you can choose from, Actuarial Services and Actuarial People and Organisations, both are among the leading actuarial practices in the UK.
You’ll work with a wide variety of companies, from large multinationals to private listed businesses. Using our market-leading pensions analytics tool, you’ll be part of the team advising them on how to best achieve their objectives in relation to their pension or benefit schemes.
