View more

About the Company:

Today we’re one of the world’s longest standing general insurers providing peace of mind to individuals and families, and protecting small businesses and large corporation from uncertainty for more than 305 years.

Being a part of RSA means being part of a vibrant community, not just a corporate culture. It means being a member of a collaborative team enriched by diversity and united by a single commitment to do the best for our customers. And it means being part of a company committed to being responsible in the way we conduct every aspect of our business: the way we sell our products, the way we manage our claims processes and the way we engage with customers and employees.

About the Role:

If you are highly mathematical and considering a future as an actuary, you should consider our actuarial internship where you could be looking at the pricing of insurance products – we challenge our actuaries to develop new and innovative ways of assessing and pricing risks to maintain our leading positions in the market. Alternatively you could be involved in calculating the reserves we need to make sure we can meet all of our claims.

When you join our 8-week internship programme (Beginning of July 2018) you’ll work on a significant real-life project. Shadowing subject matter experts and potentially working with other business areas as part of a broad project team. It’s a great opportunity to gain an insider’s view of our business, work on a real business project and demonstrate what you can do. For the right candidates it could well be the route into a longer-term career with RSA.

Requirements:

The internship is open to penultimate year students who are on track to obtain at least a 2:1 Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) in Actuarial Science or another highly numerate degree discipline and will have achieved a minimum of 300 UCAS points across three A-level (or equivalent) subjects including Maths.

Where: UK

Deadline: December 15, 2017

Type: Graduate

View more

About the Company:

Imagining the future:

Create the ideas, concepts and solutions that will drive future development. Use your curiosity, imagination and individual thinking to explore new possibilities and opportunities. Welcome to Baillie Gifford – and a group of people who think like you. A team of just over 100 investors, based in Edinburgh, who shape the future of this leading global investment management firm. Join our Investment Management graduate programme and shape your future too.

We look to buy stakes in companies that have the potential to grow significantly over the long-term – and our track record has proved our ability to seek out and invest in businesses that change the way the world looks - like Amazon, Alphabet (Google), Tesla, Facebook, TripAdvisor, Alibaba and Ocado for example. In other words, we put a high value on innovative thinkers – and that’s as true of our colleagues just as much as the companies we work with.

About the Role:

You’re our ultimate investment:

At Baillie Gifford, your intellectual curiosity and individual thinking are two qualities that will be highly valued. After all, you’ll be imagining what the future of the world will look like - and which companies will take us there.

You’ll research those companies from every possible angle - politics, people, culture, geography and many other factors that could impact on their performance and success. Then you will bring all of that information together into a cohesive report that sparks discussion and debate.

For us, it’s about building the detailed picture we need to ascertain the long-term value of a potential investment. For you, it’s about using your creativity, imagination and inquisitive nature to unearth new discoveries and insights.

In our experience, graduates benefit most from on-the-job training. Learning from some of the most experienced investors in the UK means that you’re constantly absorbing fresh streams of information and knowledge. This will be complemented by tailored courses and professional qualifications.

In your first few weeks, you’ll learn the basics of investment analysis and gain a general introduction to the firm and our clients.

You’ll spend your first year with a single team, learning about its specialism, before rotating to another team. During this time, you’ll also start to work towards CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) Level 1 and IMC (Investment Management Certificate) qualifications with full support from us, including registration payment, materials and time to study.

In years two and three you’ll have the option to continue with CFA Levels 2 and 3, again with full support. Each year you’ll rotate to a new team, gaining a broad view of the different investments and geographies we work in.

Requirements:

This role’s about intellectual challenge:

You’ll be discussing your thoughts with some of the brightest minds in the industry and meeting business people who have the potential to change the world. So of course you have to be able to articulate those thoughts clearly as people will challenge your opinions.

We’re looking for the brightest minds from any academic background. In terms of your degree subject, we’re completely open-minded and we actively encourage applications from graduates with an Arts, Humanities or Science degree. Our training programme will provide you with all the technical skills you need to become an Investment Analyst.

What’s important is that you're keen to make an effective contribution from day one. After all, we’ll see you as a full member of our team from the moment you join us.
