Pension’s Actuarial Consultant/Associate Consultant/Winchester/Open to flexibility
We are a forward thinking, innovative business, obsessed with helping our clients make good decisions based on insightful analysis, industry expertise, and game-changing technology. That’s why we have taken on board what our clients have told us and implemented LCP CARES (Clients Always Receive Exceptional Service), an articulation of both our client promise and our culture – we’re a partnership of individuals who really care, not just about our clients but also about our colleagues and the wider community.
LCP CARES about our people: we are committed to doing the best for you, so you can do the best for our clients. We offer an inclusive and supportive environment which allows our people to prosper, both personally and professionally. LCP is proud to offer both full-time and flexible work patterns.
LCP CARES about the communities in which we operate and our environment, engaging with a variety of projects at local and global levels. In 2017 we set about fundraising, running, painting, cleaning and everything in between to ensure it was a year to remember in our CSR efforts.
If you are looking for an employer that truly CARES then look no further!
Our office in the historic city of Winchester is located close to the M3 corridor and is served by regular trains from London Waterloo and Reading.
