The CERA qualification adds value to a career

CERA offers a wide range of opportunities and gives you the chance to apply your mathematical and statistical skills to real life challenges.

There are a number of career routes that you could choose to take.

You might choose to work in life, health or general insurance, as insurance companies typically have a risk management function.

Working in such a function would give you valuable experience for the CERA qualification.

Alternatively, working in the investment or banking areas can give you risk management experience – although depending on the nature of the role, this could be more narrow in its scope than the full range of risks covered by ERM.

If you are interested in working for an actuarial consultancy, then many of these now have specialist risk management areas within their practices so you could ask them about such opportunities.
