Hack into your Extraordinary Actuarial future

MiWay’s Actuarial department plays an essential role in the business, with our team’s work being at the core of insurance and our offering to clients. Our actuaries contribute to working out the premiums charged to clients, the business’ claims reserve and the capital required to be set aside to protect our business against unforeseen events, amongst other functions.

In addition to the more traditional actuarial work in short-term insurance, MiWay’s actuaries often get involved in other exciting and extraordinary business case prediction models. The team is made up of a relatively small department, which offers all team members an opportunity to get exposure to most areas of the business by engaging a range of stakeholders within the business - from senior management to software developers, right through to claims investigators. MiWay provides an environment where you can keep expanding your toolbox of skills as well as your knowledge.
