Before LV= I was working for another financial services company, in quite a specific area of actuarial work. I fancied a change and decided I wanted to work somewhere that I'd have exposure to a wider variety of departments and projects – and LV= definitely fit that bill. Nothing is outsourced here and, as an actuarial professional, you have access to GI, Life, Risk and much more, all in one office.
I'm currently working towards qualifying as an actuary and LV= is fully supporting this, both with a generous study package and through their internal Actuarial Academy. You can really feel that they care about your development; that they want you to pass and will do everything they can to help. We have 'lunch and learn' sessions which are very useful and you're supported by two mentors: one to offer guidance through exams and another to help you with your career development and progression – and all of that is on top of the excellent benefits package you get. It's great having the opportunities and encouragement to take your career in whatever direction you want to, without having to move far away.
