Actuarial Manager
Injury Schemes / Health and Disability

Sydney

About us

We help business and government leaders see a clear way forward.

Taylor Fry’s actuarial and analytics consultants support our clients in making strategic decisions to enhance the financial health of their organisations, and benefit communities, people and society.

We are creative problem solvers – from physicists and engineers to mathematicians and computer scientists. This variety strengthens our advice to meet the needs of our clients and their customers.

Our innovations have led to changes in government policy in Australia and New Zealand, and continue to break new ground, particularly in the social sector. Qantas liked our approaches in analytics so much, it bought a 51 per cent stake in our business in 2015.

About the opportunity

We’re seeking a qualified actuarial consultant with experience managing projects in the accident compensation, or public health and disability sectors.

In this role, you’ll interpret and analyse complex technical data, and provide tailored commercial solutions and advice to our clients. The work is varied, involving projects for schemes such as workers compensation, compulsory third party (CTP) and catastrophic injuries, as well as for public health and disability organisations.

Working closely with senior stakeholders, you’ll use your deep knowledge of actuarial techniques to lead small and medium-size projects. You’ll also play a support role on large projects, providing hands-on technical support, and managing client expectations and enquiries. This will include contributing to, and on occasion leading, client meetings and presentations providing insights and results.

As a Manager, you can expect to contribute to business development. You’ll participate in pitch and tender processes, write articles and present at industry events to help raise our profile and build on your own client network. Additionally, you’ll invest time in the development of others, coaching and training junior consultants to equip them with the skills they’ll need for success.

About the practice areas

Our Injury Schemes practice offers client-focused solutions to government insurers and regulators across Australia and New Zealand. We provide a full range of services, from liability valuations to advanced predictive analytics. The team works on projects such as scheme design, claims triage, claim pathways analysis, valuations, pricing, and other services that give insurers insights into scheme dynamics.

Our work in the Health sector makes a difference. The team collaborates with clients in the public and private sectors, helping them to make data-driven decisions to improve their systems and services, and ultimately make a positive impact for communities. We assist our clients in their commitment to balance financial sustainability, meet community expectations and achieve better outcomes for people.
