Hi everyone, I applied for a 3yr graduate actuarial scheme with Bupa (looking for my first full time actuary position) over the last week. I was rejected instantly. Keeping in mind this is a graduate scheme- which required no actuary experience. The only solid requirement was a 2:1 numerate degree. I achieved a first class in my BSc. Mathematics, and I also have interned as a actuary at Legal & General during my degree. So I have actuary experience too. Nothing unusual about the recruitment process either. The usual grad scheme: initial online application>> online tests>> video interview>>assessment centre>> final interview. If the process was straight to interview, straight after an initial application form, it may be slightly more understandable. However this wasn't the case. Considering that the next stage was just online testing, I am actually really surprised I didn't pass the initial CV/application form screening. Because as I said above, the only requirement was 2:1 numerate degree and no actuary experience was required. I have no idea who Bupa are looking for to fill this position.
