What our previous graduates say

I joined a Pensions Actuarial graduate scheme in 2016 before moving to the DB team at R&M in 2019. I’m studying to become an Actuary. Even though I’m new to the world of investment, I’ve been involved in a large variety of really interesting work and haven’t been doing typical “grad” jobs. Most importantly the culture is great – the people are friendly and supportive. It’s a great environment to work in. I joined from a very big firm and have found the opportunities for development are much greater. You work directly with very senior people and get given more responsibility – it’s much sooner in your career that you’re able to go out and meet clients for example. It’s also nice to know everyone in the office!

I joined as a graduate in 2016, starting in the Client Reporting team before moving to DB Consulting and later also the Business Development team. R&M gave me the excellent opportunity to split my time between DB Consulting and Business Development, enabling me to weave my background in sales into a consulting role. No one day is the same given the variety of work (including strategy reviews, presenting at trustee meetings and producing pitch materials). Every project has been a chance to hone my skills and further my career development.
