Tenure: Permanent

Hello, we’re the Pension Protection Fund. We protect 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 collapse and the pension schemes cannot afford to pay what they promised.

We are looking for a Newly Qualified Actuary or Finalist level to join the team and provide actuarial advice to the Board by carrying out and checking a range of actuarial, quantitative finance or modelling processes.

Reporting to the Asset Liability Committee (ALCO), we are the in-house “Scheme Actuaries”, valuing our Fund’s liabilities on an annual basis and monitoring them every month. We also help produce the Purple Book and the monthly 7800 Index, regular health checks on the universe of eligible schemes still out there in the UK.

The role will be responsible for the calculation and sign-off of actuarial models, planning and development of cross team work, making recommendations, implementing process changes and improvements within the team and presenting the results of actuarial work to relevant committees.

Our ideal applicant will be either a Newly Qualified Actuary or currently at the final stages of their qualification and looking for an opportunity within a highly supportive environment that will be able to give variety to their working day. If you have previous experience of working within the pensions industry or life insurance industry it would be beneficial but not essential.

Sound like you? Apply now.

In return for your skills, experience and commitment we’ll give you a challenging role within a business where you’ll get the support you need to develop your career.

You’ll also get an outstanding rewards package which includes a generous pension scheme, private medical insurance, health cash plan, critical illness insurance, volunteering leave, holiday trading and a discretionary bonus scheme.

We’ll also give you lots of opportunities for personal development and skills training.

Our Croydon office is just across the road from East Croydon station, which is around 15 minutes from Victoria or London Bridge, 10 minutes from Clapham Junction or half an hour from St Pancras.

We are a Disability Confident Employer. If you have a disability and meet the essential criteria for this role you will be guaranteed an interview.

We’re committed to being an inclusive employer and welcome applications from all.

We are happy to talk about flexible working.
