  • Student 2009

    “Star Actuarial Futures has been very helpful during the period of my job search. They proactively approach their clients to look for opportunities for their candidates and keep them abreast of the progress. Great recruitment service and I highly recommend it.”

  • Student 2000

    “I’d recommend Star and specifically Lance to any of my friends in the Actuarial profession. He strives to deliver good quality roles and his integrity towards candidates and companies is not comparable in the market. He delivers what he says he will and without drama.“

  • FIA 2012

    “I had a good idea of what I was looking for but Lance still took the time to explain the options available in detail. He was very prompt in his responses and chased up progress of my applications. Also appreciated the call he gave before the interview to run through some preparations.”

  • FIA 2008

    “I thought taking the time to thank your agency for the help during my job search was the least I could do…the service has been excellent from the improvement of my CV, the help in preparing for interviews to the regular feedback and updates. I hope I won't need the services of an agency anytime soon but if I do I'll know where to come and who to recommend to anyone who asks.” FIA 2008

  • Student 2007

    "Looking for a new role can be daunting but Star Actuarial made the process feel effortless. I liked that they were receptive and tailored their approach to fit my needs and career ambitions. Despite being a relatively new entry, Star Actuarial have a great pulse on the market often providing me with opportunities that other recruiters were not yet aware of. Moreover, Star Actuarial really stood out with their skills in improving my CV and helping me prepare for my interviews - This is an area where Antony's actuarial technical and commercial experience added an invaluable dimension that the majority other recruiters lack. Star Actuarial is my number one choice now and in the future."

  • Student 2011

    "Thanks for everything. Working with a recruiter coming from an actuarial background meant whenever I had questions, you had very insightful answers from a perspective only a qualified actuary could provide.

  • Student 2012

    "Carolina provided me with appropriate guidance by speaking to me about the roles, giving me more of an insight than what was detailed on the specification.

  • Given Up Exams

    "I just wanted to drop you a line to say how impressed and thankful I am of Star. From the moment I rang you I have had prompt, professional, proactive service. Carolina was excellent, she took the time to get to know me, work out my strengths and what I was looking for, and match me with a job which hopefully fits me and the employer perfectly.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Star, and should I ever need your services I will definitely be straight back in touch."
