Training & Development
XPS offers an excellent study package to support employees as they study towards professional qualifications through either the IFoA or CFA route. The package is flexible enough to meet individual requirements and includes:
Financial Support: full payment of exam fees, study materials, tutorials (and travel)
Time Off: study leave to work towards the exams, plus exam days
Study Support: mentoring, office study area and supportive colleagues
On joining XPS, new graduates will be assigned a senior member of the team to act as their study mentor. For those studying towards actuarial qualifications, the study mentor will provide support and guidance to the graduate as they work towards the Actuarial Profession’s work-based skills requirements. New graduates will also be assigned a ‘buddy’ who will be a recent starter. They will help you settle into your new job and keep an eye on how you are getting on, as well as being there for you to ask questions.
In addition, your induction will provide you with all the information you need to quickly get to know about your role, your team and the wider business so you feel fully integrated and ready to reach your full potential. You will have regular catch-ups with your manager to discuss your objectives, performance and any additional support you may need.
XPS encourages staff to grow and progress within the company, which means plenty of opportunity for future career progression.
