An Actuary is a job, a position, working in risk management etc not a qualification. I looked into Actuarial work but it was so boring. The firms I looked into applying to did the Institute or Faculty of Actuaries examinations so you might want to look that up.

Either way, its very competitive. Where did she do her degree? A-levels?

Look at PriceWaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Ernst and Young and Deloitte. They were reccommended to me but like I say I have opted out!

Same in any job, especially finance related. Thats why you need to get good qualifications and get into a good firm right from day one.
