What we do
Actuaries & Consultants is the actuarial advisory arm of Deloitte in Australia. A key component of the Deloitte global Actuarial and Insurance Solution Groups, Actuaries & Consultants is active in both Australia and New Zealand and provides support throughout South East Asia and Japan. We use our knowledge and deep understanding of industry dynamics across a range of industries to help clients make financial sense of the future.
Our industry expertise covers:
- financial services (life insurance, wealth management and banking)
- general insurance
We use this understanding to model the future and help our clients understand both “best estimate” outcomes and uncertainty across a range of activities including:
- actuarial & financial analysis and reporting
- mergers and acquisitions
- capital and risk management
- strategic engagements
- financial modelling
- distribution strategy: channel optimisation & remuneration
Why join? - We are able to differentiate ourselves from traditional actuarial firms through our ability to combine actuarial expertise with broader business and cross-service line advice from across Deloitte. As a global firm, we also work with Deloitte member firms around the world on international engagements. Our approach is to collaborate with our clients and to share and transfer knowledge. We aim to attain and sustain profitable growth and financial stability for our clients through insightful strategy and valuable technical analysis. A combination of disciplines and a broad range of client service teams allows us to see clearly and deeply into the business of our clients
Deloitte Actuaries and Consultants are trusted advisors to a broad range of top tier clients. This ensures that the work we do is both demanding and challenging and above all, creates real value for our clients.
Our team of intelligent, innovative, professional thinkers work autonomously and as a team to bring the very best solutions and advice to our clients.
What would I do? - Your actuarial skills will develop by studying for professional exams and through your day-to-day work for clients. As you become more experienced and expand your knowledge, you will meet clients face to face to talk about the key issues that affect them. With support from more experienced colleagues, you will take on an increasing amount of responsibility for small projects and develop into an integral part of our larger projects.
Our aim is to grow our team of intelligent, innovative, professional thinkers who can work both autonomously and within the team, to create the very best solutions and advice to our clients. Discover the professional opportunities that are currently available here.
Who are we looking for in Graduates? - We look for highly motivated graduates with a tertiary background in Actuarial Studies or a strong interest in the actuarial area. You will have the confidence to use your initiative, a keen eye for detail and for the application of technical solutions. We are engaged as consultants across the spectrum of the insurance and financial services industries, so you will be eager to get exposure to multiple practice areas.
Our work is project based in a small team environment so the ability to communicate both within Actuaries & Consultants and within a client facing role from an early stage, is essential.
