He told me without hesitation that it was the 2 - 4 year mark as an actuarial student.
"If you are in a firm who don't offer variety of work, a clear progression path and a work all hours mantra, eventually it's going to catch up with you"
He said "if he could go back in time and give himself advice it would be this; not to just accept exam progression as a good steer on how you are advancing but just as importantly ask yourself - Am I improving daily? Am I learning new techniques, a different way of working? Am I getting the exposure I'd want at this stage of my career?
If the answer is yes to all of those questions then this post isn't for you - you have the perfect role and are clearly in the right environment to really kick on.
If not, if those questions didn't strike a yes with you immediately, then what harm does it do to see if the grass is potentially greener? You don't lose anything - worst case scenario you get to learn a bit more about a competitor but best case scenario you find a position that gives you a yes to all of the above.
I am looking after a number of Corporate & Trustee based positions for PQ Actuaries in London and across the UK.
