Company profile

Milliman is one of the world’s largest independent actuarial and consulting firms. Founded in 1947, Milliman has more than 4,500 consultants and offices in major cities around the globe. The offices of Milliman Insurance & Financial Risk Benelux in Amsterdam, Brussels and Luxembourg form one practice and consist of around 50 consultants.

At Milliman we deal with all quantitative aspects that insurers have to deal with. We do projects in the field of advanced analytics, quantitative finance and actuarial sciences, and are regularly involved in M&A programs for insurers. In addition to insurers, our clients also include banks, private equity firms, government agencies, healthcare institutions and non-profit organizations.
We offer you a challenging and substantive job with responsibility from day one. Furthermore, at Milliman you get a lot of freedom to create your own development path. It is very common for juniors to follow a relevant post-mater in addition to their work as a consultant, and after a few years of work experience a secondment to one of our foreign offices is also possible.

In short, working for Milliman means the following:

- Talented and motivated colleagues who are always willing to help you;
- A flexible working environment, you manage your own agenda;
- The freedom to shape your own professional development.

Student profile

We offer a dynamic working environment with responsibility from the start!
