Our client, the fastest-growing Pensions Consultancy in the UK, has retained us to help them identify and attract a Principal / Partner level Scheme Actuary.

Described by the CEO as their most important hire this year, you will take over Scheme Actuarial responsibility for a number of their largest  schemes, and act as the figurehead of their Business Development activity within the large scheme space.

Following their well-documented growth, they are now regularly included on 1 in 2 RTTs that come to market within this sector, leading to a significant opportunity to win large client mandates for this market-leading Pensions consultancy.

As well as taking over existing marquee appointments  and leading on BD, you will have a significant role to play in helping to steer the direction of the business.  A lean, technologically driven consultancy with an aborrance of red tape, they are hungry to continue their growth, and see this hire as having a great deal of influence and recognition within the firm.

You will work closely with the young and ambitious management team, contributing ideas and having a highly visible effect on the bottom line.

You will be an experienced Scheme Actuary with a track record of working with and winning clients with funds in excess of £500M, although ideally north of this.  Ambitious to move your career on a step, you will appreciate the benefits of working within one of the larger Actuarial Consultancies, whilst at the same time recognising the attractions and benefits offered within a leaner, more fleet-footed firm that is closing fast on the Big 3.

Exceptional salary, strong bonus and benefits, one of the best LTIPs available in the market all support a tremendous opportunity to really stand out in the market, working for the most talked-about firm in Pensions right now.  Total package likely to be £250K to £350K. 

Already the largest specialist Pensions Consultancy, our client is growing quickly, and is fast becoming one of the best-regarded Actuarial Consultancies in the UK.  A genuine Challenger firm, they are at the forefront of the challenge to the former dominance of the Big 3 traditional actuarial firms, and are creating a lot of chatter in the market about their recent growth.

Ambitious, entrepreneurial, hungry and technologically-led, they operate a straight-forward, no red-tape environment that is nimble enough to change direction quickly to take advantage of changes in the market.  They think differently, are not bureaucratic, and have a thoroughly uncomplicated approach to all they do.

They are one of the very few Actuarial Consultancies with a clear and invariable ownership structure, giving clarity and ease of decision-making, rather than having to refer to Group owners for funds / authority.
