    Hey guys,

    I recently received an offer for a graduate actuarial role in a small to medium sized firm based in the NW (not Manchester). I've not yet received the contract but have a general idea of what to expect in my mind with regards to salary.

    I am almost certain to take it given it is my first choice career wise but want to try negotiating a reasonable deal for myself should I have to. I was therefore wondering if anyone has an idea of what someone in my situation may reasonably expect.

    I've tried looking into it myself but most information is for larger firms or London based firms. These figures tend to be in the 29K to 30K range. In the north and in a smaller firm, i was thinking 25K but was hoping for some more clarity if possible.

    Thanks for any input.

    £29-30k in London would probably be £20-23k in the North West, I wouldn't push for higher than that.

    Anything less than £19k and I'd feel a bit exploited, but hey, if they're paying for your exams and giving study support, there are huge non-monetary benefits right there would thousands!

    Congrats!

    Thanks for the reply. Good to have a reference range. Seems like I may have underestimated the disparity. Fortunately, 23K is the bottom end of what I expect from the advertisement. And yeah, I'd have looked at the package as a whole even if I had not found out what the range is approximately. Have a good day.
