  • Job Purpose

    Senior Actuarial Analyst: Working at the Ageas head office in Eastleigh, Southampton, this Senior Actuarial Analyst opportunity sits within a Capital Modelling team of 5 and within the wider Actuarial Department of 41. You’ll be supporting the Ageas strategy in Non-Life business and Technical Provisions to the value of c. £2bn and working in close partnership with our UK Finance and Risk functions, and cross functionally with the Group Finance and Risk divisions based in Brussels.

     

    There’s an emphasis on collaborative working within the Actuarial team and as such this Senior Actuarial Analyst opportunity is fairly fluid. While the aim is for team members to gain specific in-depth expertise in certain areas, there’s also the expectation for everyone to achieve sufficient breadth of knowledge to be able to stand-in for other team members. We offer frequent opportunities to volunteer for cross-team projects which range from solving key challenges facing the wider business, to more experimental topics such as “machine learning” and “Big Data”. We also champion and support you in Actuarial studies.

     

    Some of the key accountabilities in the Senior Actuarial Analyst role include;

    1. The management of Capital and Solvency models, which includes investigating new methods to improve modelling processes and attending group-wide committee meetings.
    2. There’s also the need to support quarterly solvency reporting, which involves working with the Financial Planning team to agree forward-looking assumptions, using models to estimate the Technical Provisions for the Solvency II Balance Sheet and calculating Solvency Capital Requirements.
    3. Other responsibilities include supporting the delivery of business plans by forecasting solvency and risk appetite, and providing explanations for the key drivers.

    Here’s the experience you’ll need to bring to the Senior Actuarial Analyst team;

    • Be studying towards a qualification as an Actuary such as IFoA.  We provide full study support.
    • Experience of capital modelling for insurance products would be an advantage. We’ll consider you if you have a strong regulated or financial services background.
    • In particular you’ll have experience of using capital modelling software such as Remetrica.
    • You’ll have advanced Excel skills, intermediate Word, PowerPoint and VBA programming.
    • Experience of using statistical software such as R or SAS would be an advantage.
    • You’ll need an inquisitive mind with the ability to solve complex problems and be able to clearly communicate these (both written and verbal) to UK team members and stakeholders.

    Here are some of the benefits we offer in this Senior Actuarial Analyst position;

    Our people enjoy a comprehensive range of flexible benefit options such as a company pension, 25 days’ holiday (rising to 27 days after 3 years) with the ability to buy an additional 5 days, a personal car lease option, health and dental plans, private medical insurance, life assurance of 4 x salary with the option to flex up or down, and a discretionary annual bonus.  Our people enjoy discounted gym membership as well as discounts with a wide range of retailers through our partner Perkz.com and make the most of our Wellbeing activities and Sports and Social Club events.
