Actuarial jobs involve using financial and statistical skills to solve complex business problems. In order to successfully forecast for the future and assess risks, actuaries usually require a degree in a numerate discipline such as maths, statistics, finance, economics or engineering. Following gaining a degree, prospective actuaries must become student members of the Faculty of Actuaries (in Edinburgh) or the Institute of Actuaries (in London and Oxford), which will enable them to study for their professional exams.

The duties of individual actuaries depend on the specific fields in which they work in. However, industry-specific skills include designing new insurance policies, assessing and advising on pension schemes, advising clients on corporate recovery, and carrying out investment research.

Employers of actuaries will require permanent or contract/temporary actuaries to have gained professional qualifications through the Faculty of Actuaries or the Institute of Actuaries and to have undertaken relevant Continuing Professional Development (CPD) through attending professional meetings and courses and engaging in periods of private study and reading.
