Northern Ireland actuaries Spence & Partners recognise the need to nurture talent and are keen to support their local communities. This year, we have provided placements to two of the first students studying toward a BSc in Actuarial Science at Queens University Belfast. In the third year of their degree course, students undertake a placement in an actuarial environment, for a minimum period of nine months.
As a progressive actuarial and pension consultancy practice, the students are given a broad range of work, with the potential to quickly contribute and participate in helping to achieve the objectives of the business, whilst working closely with senior qualified actuaries, trainee actuaries, pension consultants and administrators.
Ian Campbell, a director at Spence & Partners commented “since the Actuarial Science degree programme was established at Queens University Belfast, we have built a strong association with the faculty, and we have a keen interest in actuarial research and education. The quality and academic calibre of the students we have met is excellent, and we very much want to be an employer of choice”.
