Founded in 1847, The Canada Life Assurance Company is one of the largest Canadian life and health insurance companies.

Canada Life began operations in the United Kingdom in 1903 and looks after the retirement, investment and protection needs of individuals and companies. Our UK operations are headquartered in Potters Bar, 15 minutes from central London by train.

Benefits of working at Canada Life

Canada Life offer the advantage of working in a professional, fast moving, financially strong company, yet with a better work/life balance than you would usually find in London. We offer excellent starting salaries and great opportunities for career progression.

A competitive study package is available to all our actuarial trainees, which includes study days, tutorials, course materials and entry fees for the first sitting of each exam. Every new starter is assigned a mentor to oversee their progress. Canada Life has a strong culture of success in the actuarial examinations, and provides an environment for new actuaries to study and develop.

Who are we looking for?

Applicants will have at least three A Levels (or equivalent) and a degree (2:1 or better), ideally in mathematics or another numerate subject, although exceptional candidates with other degrees will be considered. We are looking for excellent communicators with strong problem solving skills. Successful candidates will be motivated to maintain our strong record in the challenging professional examinations.

The role

Our actuarial trainees have the opportunity to work in a variety of roles in areas including: reserving, financial reporting, pricing, risk management, investments and systems. We expect that trainees will work in at least two or three different areas before qualification, which means our newly qualified actuaries tend to have a valuable breadth of experience.
