Heriot-Watt University Careers Fair 2011

It’s well documented that the GAAPS team Travel Well; just like the Actuarial profession itself!

And it’s fair to say that we often favour the warmer climates of the mediataranian, the hustle and bustle of the Far East, the Surf of Australasia; or cities steeped in history; which is why once a year we are only too happy to host the Heriot Watt Actuarial careers fair in Edinburgh.

Now scoff as you may, it may not have the surf of Sydney but we choose our travels destinations carefully; and Edinburgh is NO exception!

Two fabulous days were spent flitting around this wonderful city on foot; sampling the gastronomic delights of La Partenopes delicious home made desserts, stodgy dumplings and excellent wines by evening, and by day we couldn’t resist sampling the scrumptious cakes at Urban Angel.

I’d like to point out that all this eating was in the name of client entertainment; and as for the flitting around the wonderful city on foot; well, we cat be seen to recommend new employer locations to our candidates without actually having bothered to check out the areas for ourselves can we now; so feel free to email us if you need advise on cafe’s, bars, restaurants and oh the odd retail store 😉

Networking in Scotland: Breakfast and Dining Clubs

I am in Edinburgh ahead of the GAAPS Actuarial Careers Fair at Heriot Watt. I interviewed an excellent candidate first thing this morning over breakfast and am now working on placing him. I then went to visit a client who has given me international contacts for his organisation around the world.

As usual I have found time for shopping but rather than shoes I am now one skirt up.

At this morning’s meeting I was told about a Faculty meeting that I hadn’t realised was taking place and will now be attending the Faculty meeting and the Scottish actuaries dining club afterwards.

Solvency in Edinburgh

My last week was spent in Edinburgh for GIRO, I have been discussing with many candidates and clients the on-going needs of Solvency II. Most interesting in regards to new needs and of course on-going needs within Solvency II and other teams within the non-life parts of the business.
