Application closing date: 29 MARCH 2021
We are currently recruiting for new student editors for The Actuary magazine. This is a really exciting opportunity to work on the IFoA’s membership magazine and learn how a magazine is put together. If you have lots of ideas and enjoy writing, then we’d love to hear from you.
The role involves:
- Managing and writing a student page of 700-800 words every few months, on topics relevant to actuarial students
- Participating in monthly production meetings with the rest of the editorial team (usually held from 9-10am GMT on a Wednesday or Thursday)
- Other ad hoc duties, such as taking up interview opportunities, if you’d like to.
The position is a great opportunity for student actuaries who would enjoy networking and learning more about how the IFoA works. We’re looking for someone who is a good writer and imaginative (remember that you will have to write a page every few months). You will need to be able to work to deadlines, as you will be fitting this work around your day job.
Volunteering provides you with a wide range of opportunities. With all rights and opportunities come responsibilities, and we ask all our volunteers to comply with the terms of the IFoA’s Governance Manual and Volunteer Information Pack (VIP). Please view our ‘What you need to know’ webpages before offering to provide support.
