  • Contribute to capability development, internal knowledge sharing through identification of emerging themes, problems and opportunities.
  • Use insight to present compelling stories that deliver tangible value to clients.
  • Apply actuarial and data analytics skills to help our government clients make better policy decisions, understand the financial and human impacts of strategic initiatives, assess costs of policies/ reforms and develop corresponding funding models, optimise the use of finite resources for better citizen outcomes and provide assurance over complex government programmes.
  • Develop and implement new client offerings, leveraging the latest technology and KPMG's alliance partnerships.

How are you extraordinary?

  • You love being part of a collaborative and multidisciplinary team and building strong relationships both internally and externally.
  • You are tuned in to business development opportunities, with confidence creating effective sales material including proposals, case studies, and other sector-specific material.
  • You are able to digest, distil, and communicate complex concepts in both written and verbal forms.

You bring to the role:

  • These roles can be tailored to fit the talented individual with the right aspirations.
  • Nearly qualified or qualified as an actuary you will ideally have:
  • Senior Consultant (typically 2 to 5 years' experience) and Manager (typically 5 to 10 years' experience) levels. Enquiries from more senior people are welcome.
  • Interest and experience in applying actuarial and data analytics skills outside of traditional actuarial areas of work.
  • Commercial acumen to proactively identify and understand business needs and be able to suggest impactful solutions.
  • Ability to translate complex actuarial or analytical insights and/or outcomes into presentations (written and verbal) to senior stakeholders (both internal and external).
  • Practical experience in Python, R, SAS, Teradata and SQL.
  • Minimum NV1 clearance level is required.

You will have a passion for using technology, data and analytics to maximise the value actuaries can bring to organisations, and an ability to manage multiple tasks at the same time. You will want to be a consultant and be passionate about making a difference to your clients, progressive in your thinking and willing to invest in your own career and develop in a supportive team environment.
