Our Graduate Program

This two-year, structured Program includes rotations through several core areas - including Capital Management, Policy Liability Valuation, Financial Reporting, Insurance Pricing and Product Development. You’ll also be involved with project-based work, including strategy, granular analysis to uncover insights about our claims experience, business valuation, and providing advice to the business on product developments and initiatives.

There are several key roles that you could move into at the end of the Program: 

  • Finance Actuaries: responsible for the valuation and reporting of the insurance company’s financial results, calculation and communication of capital requirements and solvency and the management of the insurance risk of the business.  In particular, the Appointed Actuary is a key member of the finance team
  • Product Actuaries: responsible for the pricing and development of new and existing products, as well as for investigations into the experience of our products.

What qualities do we look for?

You have a ‘can do’ attitude and the ability to learn quickly. Driven to succeed, you’ll need strong numerical ability, as well as good interpersonal and communication skills.

We have roles available in Sydney for the CommInsure Program.
