Actuarial and analytics consultant
(2 – 4 years)
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’re 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 looking for experienced actuarial and analytics consultants to work on a range of projects for our corporate and government clients.
As a consultant at Taylor Fry, you’ll have opportunities to work on projects across our business lines, rather than being siloed into one sector. Expect plenty of variety in areas such as general and self-insurance, injury schemes, social sector, aviation, marketing, health and disability, and forensics.
In this role, you’ll work closely with senior staff to understand our clients’ needs and deliver tailored commercial solutions, using advanced data modelling and analytics techniques. You’ll have regular exposure and interactions with clients, and be encouraged to actively contribute to key project decisions. We’ll also get you involved in business development, where you’ll provide input into pitch and tender documents.
We like to be at the forefront of new developments, so you’ll also have the opportunity to flex your creative muscles and be involved in R&D projects, contributing to the innovation of new products.
You’ll need between two to four years’ experience, gained in an actuarial or analytics-focused role, from either a consulting or corporate environment. You don’t have to be an actuary to apply – we’re interested in candidates from a range of quantitative disciplines.
To be successful in this role, you’ll need the following skills and attributes:
- Demonstrated understanding of predictive modelling, statistics and/or machine learning, with experience using scripting languages such as SAS, R, Python and other relevant languages
- Strong organisational skills, with the ability to assimilate information quickly and handle multiple priorities under pressure or within tight timeframes
- An ability to interpret and analyse complex technical data with high attention to detail
- Strong communication and interpersonal skills, with the confidence to liaise with clients and diverse stakeholder audiences
- An interest in training and mentoring junior team members
- Creative and innovative thinking with an appetite to contribute to R&D
- A passion for making a difference using data.
About our culture
Taylor Fry was established so staff would each have a voice and feel valued. Collaboration and collective effort is really important to us – junior staff work shoulder to shoulder with the firm’s leaders as a matter of course. We nurture our employees’ interests, and support their growth and development. We’re known for doing great work, and for doing work that breaks new ground. Our people particularly love immersing themselves in the technical detail.
Taking an active interest in our people and their careers, we promote work practices that support wellbeing, mental wellness and work/life balance. We offer a range of benefits, such as flexible work hours, remote working, life and salary protection insurance, 12 weeks’ paid parental leave, bonuses based on profit share, and many social activities.
