We want to be the best place that any of our colleagues have ever worked.
We are the UK's largest long-term savings and retirement business with c.13 million customers and c.£300 billion of assets under administration. As a market leader and FTSE100 organisation, we understand that our scale and expertise means that we have a key role to play for our customers, colleagues and our communities to help as many people as possible secure a life of possibilities. We are tackling key environmental and social issues such as transitioning our portfolio to net zero by 2050 - but we're not done yet.
We've seen huge growth and change, and this means there is enormous opportunity for our 7,000 colleagues to grow alongside us.
You can expect to work in a hybrid manner with time spent working in the office and at home. We believe that work/life balance offers benefits for customers as well as ensuring that you can balance a successful career with your life outside of work.

We want to hire the whole version of you.

At Phoenix Group we've brought together businesses with long, successful histories and many strengths. More than ever, people need help and guidance from a company which is simple to deal and who they trust. And that's where you come in.
We are currently recruiting for a With-Profits Technical Actuary in our With-Profits Methodology and Review team, working with other actuaries and analysts across a range of with-profits activities carried out within the With-Profits Management team and supporting the With-Profits Actuaries in carrying out their duties. The work you do will have a direct impact on our policyholders.
You will be working across a number of our with-profits funds and contribute to their effective management by leading or supporting investigations, projects and developments; proposing improvements to processes, controls and methodologies; and reviewing the outcomes of business-as-usual work such as bonus reviews.
If you are interested in applying your actuarial expertise to help ensure the fair treatment of customers across our 22 with-profits funds, and have excellent communication and analytical skills, this may be the job for you.
What are we looking for?
You will be a qualified Actuary with relevant post-qualification experience in the industry ideally in the context of with-profits funds.
Time-management, planning and stakeholder management skills will ensure successful delivery of a mixture of business-as-usual review work, methodology reviews and project work.
An ability to conduct research and investigations across a range of financial and commercial issues will enable you to work on a range of investigations as the with-profits funds run-off.
Excellent communication skills mean you will work effectively with a technical actuarial audience and simplify communications of technical issues to a non-technical audience.
Why choose us?
Bring your 'whole self', skills and dedication to the Phoenix Group and we'll recognise your effort, support your development and help to drive your ambition. We'll ensure you're rewarded for your contribution with a competitive package that includes an attractive pension, annual bonus potential, private medical insurance, generous holiday entitlement, enhanced maternity and adoption leave and a range of other financial services and lifestyle flexible benefits.
