Club Vita Longevity Analyst

Date: October 2021

Location – UK (preferable)

 

Company Overview:

Club Vita is a successful data analytics business that specialises in the collection, analysis and licensing of data on longevity patterns and trends. Its services are used by pension plans, life insurers and reinsurers, advisors and capital market participants.

Originally established in the UK by Hymans Robertson LLP (with a public launch in March 2008), we expanded to Canada with support of Eckler Ltd in 2014 and jointly established a vibrant operation in the United States. The primary business activity of both Hymans Robertson and Eckler is the provision of actuarial consultancy services to corporate pension plans. Both Club Vita’s shareholders’ businesses are partnerships with the working partners providing the capital to develop the business.

Club Vita has recently hired a chief executive, Jennifer Haid, to lead the next phase of growth. Two independent directors – Dan Ryan and Brian Okupski - have been appointed to the board of Club Vita LLP

Our wider team of 40, includes a multi-disciplinary team of 12 statistical modellers, data scientists and actuaries, led by Steven Baxter, a widely respected London-based thought leader in the field of longevity statistics.  This distributed R&D team currently has people in Glasgow, London, Toronto, Florida and Zurich who communicate daily using video technology.      

The new role:

Demands on our R&D team are growing from a wide range of innovative areas, notably in applications of the data being collected from US pension plans and longevity analytics for insurance companies, pension plans and asset managers. Our growing business has created a great career opportunity for a data analyst / statistician to join our operations.

A strong background in statistical analysis and statistical programming (R or similar) are essential, with practical experience of data analytics in the life insurance or pensions markets also highly desirable.
