Why hire an actuary: a strategic advantage in an uncertain world

In a world of rapid change and uncertainty, businesses and governments rely on actuaries as problem solvers and strategic thinkers. Actuaries combine technical skills with professional acumen to navigate ever evolving landscapes and guard against the impacts of future uncertainty.

The demand for actuaries and actuarial analysts is on the rise as organisations seek to model and plan for the future. Our members are leaders in insurance, pensions, investment, capital and organisational risk, data analytics, and sustainability. They work for leading banks, governments, financial institutions, and in fintech.

Actuaries possess a unique skill set, blending mathematics, analytics, communication, and management. They create social impact, shape strategic decisions, and influence legislation, making a tangible difference in people’s lives. Actuaries add value and grow your business while guarding against the impacts of future uncertainty.

Are you ready to take your company’s recruitment efforts to the next level? Join us at our annual actuarial careers showcase at the IFoA Conference. At this event employers have the unique opportunity to connect with over 100 highly talented first- and second-year university students. This is the ultimate platform to showcase your organisation and make a lasting impression on the future generation of actuaries.

If you are interested in participating in a showcase event in your country or region, please get in touch.

Our award-winning annual event Count Me In is a celebration of diversity within the actuarial profession. We believe in empowering bright young mathematics students from historically unrepresented backgrounds to pursue their dreams of becoming actuaries. By participating in our showcase, you’re not only expanding your talent pool but also actively contributing to a more inclusive and equitable industry.

Through the IFoA Foundation we have:

  • awarded 84 education hardship grants to help disadvantaged aspiring actuaries
  • empowered 40 students to study through the Actuarial Academy of East Africa e-learning platform pilot
  • created 10 places for recent graduates in the Actuarial Mentoring Programme

To learn more, see IFoA Foundation.

Our university accreditation programme and strategic partnerships with non-accredited universities ensure a continuous pipeline of top-tier talent for your business. Together we can create a bright future for the actuarial profession. To find out more about the programme, see university courses with exemptions.

Develop your employees

We ensure our employer partners remain at the top of their game with the best actuarial talent. Our continuing professional development (CPD) scheme, industry insights, lifelong learning, and volunteering opportunities all contribute to individual professional development.

Personal and professional development is a practical work experience component of the IFoA qualification. It’s required of all students on the path to becoming either an Associate or a Fellow.

To find out more, email us at employers@actuaries.org.uk

Some 4,700 IFoA members, from all stages of their career and across the globe, volunteer on working parties, committees, and practice boards. They each bring different skills, talents, and abilities.

In turn, as your employees, they bring wider insights to your organisation as their knowledge and networks grow.

We have made it easy for our members to complete their IFoA CPD. They gain real professional benefit from the exercise, which includes a reflective practice discussion.

If you are a Quality Assurance Scheme (QAS) accredited organisation, your employees are eligible to opt into the outcomes-focused QAS CPD scheme. They are also exempt from any additional CPD requirements applying under the IFoA’s Practising Certificate Scheme.

Our events provide opportunities for members to enhance their knowledge and skills. Explore our events calendar.

The IFoA can provide you with the business insights and key information about the profession. In 2022 we launched a survey on study support packages provided by employers. See the report on our 2022 to 2023 IFoA study support survey (PDF, 560 KB).

In 2023 we are focusing on the skills your business needs from IFoA actuaries. To find out more, email us at employers@actuaries.org.uk.

Why the IFoA?

The IFoA is the only chartered professional body dedicated to educating, developing, and regulating actuaries globally.

In addition to the globally recognised qualification, our actuaries add value to any organisation in several ways. Those include ongoing personal and professional development, volunteer activities, and innovative thought in an ever-changing world.

IFoA actuaries tackle some of the biggest problems facing society. They are proud to uphold rigorous professional standards that allow them to support their employers and the industries and sectors in which they work. As a member of the IFoA, actuaries know they are part of a community with shared values whose work makes a tangible difference to society.


QAS accreditation is a unique opportunity to demonstrate the professionalism, training and development, and exceptional standards embedded within your organisational culture.

With over 40 member firms, including multinational organisations and boutique actuarial firms, QAS is a globally recognised mark of outstanding actuarial practice. It is your gateway to showcasing your organisation’s commitment to unparalleled actuarial standards. To learn more, see Quality Assurance Scheme (QAS).

The IFoA’s designated professional body licensing scheme presents an attractive and cost-effective alternative to Financial Conduct Authority regulation. The scheme not only safeguards your clients but also ensures you meet your regulatory requirements seamlessly.

With our scheme, you gain the best of both worlds. Your clients receive the protection they deserve, while you enjoy the freedom and support to excel in your operations. Reduce regulatory burdens and embrace a streamlined approach.

To discover the advantages of the licensing scheme and explore whether your organisation qualifies, see designated professional body.
