The ASHK Actuary Internship Portal is designed to help employers recruit students who wish to embark on an actuarial career. ASHK members are actuaries who work in the industries of insurance, consultancy, finance, education institutes and government, they are also hiring managers for actuary positions. This puts ASHK in a unique position to match recruiters to actuary students.
Connecting employers with a larger pool of students
Companies recruit candidates for actuarial internships each year but are challenged to fill up these vacancies due to too keen competition from many employers and a limited supply of students. The portal will help employers fill these actuarial internships by reaching out to a wider student base (see Key Institutions and Courses).
- Actuarial undergraduates from all local universities
- Master actuarial students/graduates who are interested in an internship
- Students studying actuarial-related courses who are considering a career in actuary
- Overseas actuarial students/graduates who are interested to work in Hong Kong
Connecting students to multiple actuarial job opportunities
Some university programmes have an established system to assist students to secure their inbuilt internship. However, for students that are seeking other internships to experience different types of actuarial work or looking for part-time work, they would largely need to self-source. The Portal will help students connect with different employers that are offering actuarial internship/part-time/contract opportunities.
The Portal will collect actuarial-related job opportunities from different employers (see Employer List) and publish them twice a year. Students can just visit the portal once every half year to view all the upcoming opportunities and submit one CV if they are interested. CVs from interested students will be collected and sent to the relevant employers. Employers will then reach out to suitable students.
What to do to use the portal?
Students: Register as an ASHK Student Member by 16 Dec 2022 to view the portal.
Employers: Register as an Actuary Employer by 28 Nov 2022 to post on the portal.

The Government intends to implement a Risk-based Capital regime for the insurance industry, which seeks to align Hong Kong’s regime with international standards and strengthen Hong Kong’s function as an international risk management Centre.
The legislation for the Risk-based Capital regime is expected to be submitted in the second half of 2022 and implemented in early 2024.
