About us
Hundreds of actuarial professionals move between South Africa, the UK, Australia and the rest of the world every year. For this very reason we started our business. We believe that we can provide a 360degree relocation solution to these professionals and in doing so, provide South African, UK, Australian and other employers with a constant stream of highly talented, dedicated and experienced individuals.

We not only offer a unique and professional service to candidates that want to move to other countries, but we have also established ourselves as one of the leading actuarial recruitment firms in South Africa over the last couple of years. We deal with all the major employers in South Africa and the feedback we’ve had from both employers and candidates have been amazing. The general consensus is that having a fully qualified actuary involved in the recruitment process is beneficial to both the candidates and the employer.

Why do we claim to offer a unique service? For one, we have a dedicated qualified actuary that will look after your recruitment needs. He knows the South African market inside out and has many contacts within the business. Whether you are looking to fill a strategic position or looking for a different challenge, we would be able to help. Then secondly, unlike many of our competitors, we have been through the relocation process ourselves. After gaining valuable experience in the UK market, we have now returned to South Africa, able to share what we have learnt. From the big challenges of relocation and how to negate them, to passing on our knowledge about the smaller detail, our service is unique and professional.

We realise that both employers and candidates have specific requirements and taking time to understand these requirements will breed success. By establishing a relationship of trust and understanding, we seek efficient solutions for all your human capital development needs.

If you are in the Actuarial profession (Life Insurance, Pensions, General Insurance, Health Insurance or Investments), then our services are aimed at you. We can provide candidates, in all stages of their careers, with permanent or contract positions in South Africa, the UK, Australia and the rest of the world.

South African Actuaries Abroad is a proudly Level 1 BBBEE contributor. We are also a value-adding supplier and are committed to the transformation process in South Africa.

His wife and three children take up most of his spare time, but besides that, he is a keen traveller. His hobbies include any sport that is played with a ball and he makes a mean Cappuccino.
