Contracting with APR
Why contract through APR?
APR’s partners have been working closely with self-employed actuarial contractors for the past 20 years. Over that period the market has changed significantly in nature and size, but as well as the strong contractor relationships we have developed, our extensive experience of the market has given us a strong insight into what contractors find valuable.
Let’s face it, the most important factor for contractors will be to work with an agency which will find you suitable roles. We understand this, but aside from having access to clients making up a large proportion of the UK insurance industry our aim is to make contracting as straightforward as possible, leaving you to concentrate your energies to providing an excellent service to our mutual clients.
See further details of our fresh approach to dealing with our actuarial contractors. We are happy to provide testimonials from contractors already working through APR on how we compare to our competitors – here are just a couple:
“APR have secured me long-term contracts with five insurers and I believe that a key reason for this is their careful matching of my skills against the role I am applying for. I would have no reservations in recommending APR as my agency of choice when they have successfully placed me in roles for the vast majority of my contracting career. APR have always been available and approachable either on the telephone, by email or face-to-face, and have always been open and honest.” – Mark, Actuarial contractor for over 8 years
“Roger and Gary offer a high-standards professional service when it comes to helping candidates looking for roles. Strongly recommended.” – Nikos, Actuarial contractor for over 8 years

Consistent with our philosophy of targeting roles at specific, suitable individuals, we do not advertise roles on our website, but we would be delighted to have a chat with you to give you a flavour of the sort of roles we have filled which might suit your skill-set.
Contractor referral scheme
We also offer a generous referral scheme and have already paid out such rewards on many occasions.
For any new contractors brought to our attention, we will pay a referral fee of £1,000 should we place that contractor for more than three months. 50% of the fee will be paid as soon as the contractor starts their first month of placement with APR and the remaining 50% paid on starting their fourth month. To be eligible for the reward we just require the contact details of the new contractor and their permission for us to contact them.
We also recognise those actuarial contractors who choose to get in touch with us proactively so a self-referral fee of the same amount will also be paid in those circumstances.
