Taylor Fry is a leading independent consultancy offering analytics, actuarial, statistical and policy advice to business and government – backed by a strong focus on research and development. Established in 1999, the firm helps its clients make data-informed, evidence-based decisions to enhance their financial health, and effect meaningful change for communities and society.

The people at Taylor Fry are creative problem solvers, from physicists and engineers to mathematicians and computer scientists. Their innovations have led to changes in government policy in Australia and New Zealand, and continue to break new ground, particularly in the social sector. This pioneering work is supported and developed through an inhouse R&D function, TF Labs, which ensures clients keep up to date with and benefit from the latest commercially driven analytics techniques.

Taylor Fry has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Wellington, New Zealand. In 2015, Qantas bought a 51 per cent stake in the company to gain access to its advanced analytics services. That year, Taylor Fry co-founder Alan Greenfield was awarded Actuary of the Year by the Actuaries Institute.

The firm periodically recruits across its three offices. While vacancies are listed at https://taylorfry.com.au/careers/, interested candidates with an impressive transcript, and a willingness to learn, contribute and grow are encouraged to email [email protected] with their CV and cover letter at any time.

Taylor Fry looks for outstanding academic achievement, strong numerical ability, as well as exceptional interpersonal qualities. An actuarial degree is not a pre-requisite for obtaining a graduate position.
