About You

  • We are looking for a candidate who has a strong Actuarial background and has some experience of business development
  • We are flexible on location, but this role should be based in the UK. The role will include some travel to conferences and face-to-face meetings
  • Our hybrid working model offers the best of both worlds – home working as well as a fun, collaborative office environment - meaning flexible working patterns to accommodate individual needs.
  • We are open to candidates from diverse skilled backgrounds and offer comprehensive support for those looking to develop in their career or a return to work after a career break
Company overview

Club Vita’s mission is to improve later life financial well-being by promoting awareness of longevity risk and making its management transparent and efficient.

We work primarily with workplace pension funds in the UK, Canada and the US. On their behalf, we facilitate the accumulation and pooling of data underlying the longevity patterns of retirees with annuity benefits. Club member pension funds and their advisors use our analytics to understand their emerging longevity patterns, to drive more informed strategic decisions and to embed best-practice risk-management into their governance frameworks.  We also support financial institutions that manage longevity risk: insurers, reinsurers and asset managers, helping them offer attractive longevity risk protection products in a tech-enabled, efficient manner. Our current community includes 400 pension funds, 7 pension advisory firms and 25 (re)insurers. Across our three clubs, we are tracking the survival patterns of a diverse population of over five million people with benefits in workplace pension plans. ​

Club Vita was born in the UK in 2008.  Our systems and processes have been developed by a multi-disciplinary team of over 50 employees across our three geographies, with a shared passion for “allowing the data to do the talking” by combining modern technology and statistical techniques.  Following a successful UK launch, we went on to build similar communities in Canada (2015) and in the United States (2019).
