Who We Are
The Burlington Casualty Practice provides property and casualty actuarial consulting services on a range of projects across the insurance, reinsurance, and insurance-linked securities (ILS) markets. We work with a diverse set of clients ranging from major international corporations, to governmental agencies and risk pool, and financial investors and other participants in the ILS space. Using a variety of Milliman products and office-built tools, we look to establish and develop the cutting edge of actuarial practice in each of our professional niches, and provide our clients with trusted partnership and advice to advance the success of their business.
The team is a focused and tight-knit group based out of the Burlington, VT office of Milliman. Our book of projects allows team members to work on a range of client projects of various sizes, and we employ a highly integrated project structure that encourages interaction across all members of the team from analysts to the Principals serving as the client leads. While most of our team's time is spent working on Burlington projects and with Burlington employees, team members also have the chance to participate on certain assignments that are completed in partnership with other Milliman offices, and work with employees from other Milliman casualty practices.
We believe that the actuarial skillset has important applications across both our traditional actuarial work and our work in developing market areas such as ILS, and are committed to developing a pipeline of young actuarial talent and future leaders of the firm through exam support and interaction with senior colleagues.
The actuarial analyst role provides the backbone of analytical support for our projects. In addition, analysts are expected to pursue a credential with the Casualty Actuarial Society by taking and passing actuarial examinations, and are provided time and monetary resources to support this pursuit.
On a day-to-day basis, the actuarial analyst will be expected to work closely with project team members to execute key analyses for ongoing projects. They will be expected to produce high-quality analytical work while also showing professionalism and strong communication skills when interacting with colleagues and, when applicable, client contacts. Much of the analyst's work will be in Excel, but supplemental programming, statistical, and database skills are highly valued and will open up additional opportunities for impactful client assignments and advancement.
Four-year bachelor's degree or higher degree (quantitative course work in actuarial science, mathematics, statistics, etc. highly desired)
Strong critical thinking, technical, and analytical skills
Substantial expertise with Excel and Word
Close attention to detail
Between one and five successfully completed actuarial examinations, and pursuing a credential from the CAS.
Expertise with statistical and programming tools such as SAS, @Risk, STATA, R, VBA, Python, etc.
Working knowledge of supplemental database and professional working tools such as Access and PowerPoint
The ability to work collaboratively and organize various client needs in a fast-paced environment
Clearly demonstrated leadership and creative thinking abilities
The ability and willingness to clearly articulate questions and ideas
Intellectual curiosity about the topics of risk, Milliman, and the work of the Burlington Casualty Practice
We are looking for either Junior Analysts (0-2 years of work experience) or Senior Analysts (3-5 years of work experience, and prior to ACAS) for this role.
