    For someone working in a large pension company in Dublin as an actuary, lets say about 10 years post qualification as an actuary what would you expect their salary to currently be?

    What would they typically be doing on a day to day basis?

    It is quite a difficult qualification process and a technical job so hoping it pays well.

    The pay will depend on the company, the hours, and of course experience in the specific industry.

    1. Will you be working purely in analytics,
    2. Or will you be a person who calculates premiums?
    3. Will you be working as head of dept, a team member, or single entity in a small firm

    Underwriting actuaries with 10 years plus can earn in the region on 100k presently. Of course, the training and experience is a big factor, id air on the side of caution and say 80k so start with and upwards incrementally

    I gave up as I just wasn't good enough at maths to pass them. Went into a Data Analyst role instead.

    Those exams are probably the toughest of any professional exams.

    With 10 yrs PQE, you should be getting a minimum of €150k plus bonus. That would be about average (wife is an actuary)
