We are AXA, the number one global insurance brand (as ranked by Interbrand 2014, for the sixth year running) and a world leader in asset management. We are constantly transforming our business so that we can protect people better. But to make change happen, to keep moving forwards, we need graduates with drive and ambition. Graduates who want to put their ideas and creative thinking into practice. Graduates who are determined to Challenge Everything.
Global Actuarial Graduate Programme
In 2014, AXA Group’s total revenues were almost €92 billion. Impressive, we think you’ll agree. It also demonstrates the importance of effectively assessing financial risks, designing and pricing products, and calculating the amount of money we need to set aside now to be confident that we’ll be able to meet our liabilities when they fall due. That’s why actuaries are so important to us. Actuaries make financial sense of the future. They apply mathematical, statistical and economic models and provide us with expert investment advice.
You’ll have the opportunity to work within a number of different business areas, including Pricing, Reserving, Capital Modelling, Risk Management and Business Finance, which will complement your actuarial studies. And, if you’ve the appetite and the drive, you could have the chance to head off on an international assignment, spending time at another AXA global company.
Who should apply?
You’ll need a head for figures, that’s for definite. So we’d like you to have an A grade at A-level Mathematics (or an equivalent qualification), as well as a 2:1 (or above) in a mathematical or highly numerical degree. And because of this background, it goes without saying that you’re analytical and methodical as well as able to communicate your technical knowledge to influence others. Potential’s massively important. We don’t expect you to know everything about economic and statistical modelling just yet. But we do expect you to be a quick and keen learner, ready to make the most of the opportunities that will come your way.
