LV= Launches Actuarial Recruitment Drive

Press release: 29/08/2013

Insurer LV= is launching an actuarial recruitment drive following a restructure and a resulting expansion of responsibilities of the actuarial team. The business is looking for up to 10 actuarial professionals to join the team at a variety of levels.

There are roles available for qualified actuaries and senior actuarial students. The roles are based in the head office in Bournemouth where the company has both its life and general insurance actuarial teams.

The opportunity with LV= is quite unique in that our life and general insurance operations are based in the same office which allows our actuaries and students to gain experience in both disciplines in one location.

Mark Laidlaw, Group Chief Actuary at LV=

LV= has grown significantly over the last few years and is now one of the UK’s leading financial services company. It is the third largest car insurer in the UK and a leading provider of income protection products and enhanced annuities. As a mutual with a focus on excellent levels of customer service, the business has gone from strength to strength since a new management team joined in 2006. The company has over five million customers, of which 1.1 million are members.

As well as recruiting for actuarial students, LV= is also looking for a number of life actuaries for its valuation team. These are roles in the consolidation team, which provides the technical support to the Actuarial Function Holder, as well as the rest of the valuation team. Additionally LV= is looking for a development manager who will lead the development of the actuarial systems across its business.

About LV=

LV= employs over 6,000 people and serves over 5.8 million customers with a range of financial products. We are the UK's largest friendly society and a leading financial mutual.

When we started in 1843 our goal was to give financial security to more than just a privileged few and for many decades we were most commonly associated with providing a method of saving to people of modest means. Today we follow a similar purpose, helping people to protect and provide for the things they love, although on a much larger scale and through a wide range of financial services including insurance, investment and retirement products.

We are currently the UK's number one brand for Insurance and Investments, according to the 2015 YouGov Brand Index Buzz Rankings.

We offer our services direct to consumers, as well as through IFAs and brokers, and through strategic partnerships with organisations such as ASDA, Nationwide Building Society and a range of trade unions.
