Salary: £60000 - £80000 + Benefits package

Sector: Finance

Type: Commerce & Industry

Our client is a well-established and highly successful insurance business based in North Yorkshire. To support their continued development and deliver further growth they are now looking to recruit a high calibre Head of Actuary to work closely with the CFO to deliver effective modelling and analysis to allow the business to manage risk, develop new products and support pricing strategies.

As well as leading the actuarial work with the support of external specialists, the role will help support some of the wider financial and management accounting activity on an ad hoc basis as well as any additional project work. This is a varied role and requires someone with a wide range of skills.

The ideal candidate would be a professionally qualified accountant, ideally with a track record in a senior role and a good understanding of risk, analysis and modelling within the insurance or financial services sector. Clearly any previous actuarial experience is highly advantageous but not essential. A high degree of competency with excel is absolutely essential as is the ability to engage with senior internal and external stakeholders such as regulatory bodies.
