I currently have a job with a consultancy starting later this year. However, I’m tempted to do a gap year and PWC have offered me a position starting the year after but the full contract isn’t yet available and they’re being secretive about the pay! Does anyone know what they start their actuarial trainees on as this will obviously be a big decider?
I couldn’t say for sure but a trainee would typically get paid low-mid 20k initially, and this goes up quickly as you pass exams. PWC being one of the big 4 are naturally going to pay much better than the average company. So are you basing your decision the initial amount or are you taking into account the exam bonuses?
