We provide a wide array of services to our clients including:

  • Actuarial valuations for pension plans

  • Global IFRS accounting consolidation for employee benefit plans

  • Cross-border merger, acquisition and divestiture consulting

  • Financial, cost and risk control solutions for employee benefit plans worldwide

The Role

The role

As a Senior Actuarial Analyst, you will work as part of a team to provide consulting advice and services to Nordic and multinational companies concerning retirement as well as broader HR benefits and compensation issues for their operations globally.

We have a portfolio of large and well-respected clients giving the opportunity to pursue a wide range of assignments including accounting work under US GAAP, IAS19 and local standards, complete analyses required for special projects including mergers and acquisitions, benefit plan strategy and design, plan management and governance strategy, and global financing and funding policies.

You will serve as a key resource for consultants in charge of engagements by performing many aspects of client work including communication with clients, participating in internal and external meetings, analyzing data and drafting deliverables as needed. As you grow and gain more expertise, you will become a key contact for clients and will begin taking on a larger project manager role within the team, including creating project plans, monitoring progress, communicating with our global colleagues and always ensuring we meet or exceed client expectations.

As well as client-facing assignments you will also contribute to the development of new tools and approaches, including monitoring and analysing economic conditions in major markets around the world and updating country profiles. As a forward-looking team you will also be provided with many learning and development opportunities and have the opportunity to study towards actuarial certifications.
