But the most desired degrees are Actuarial Science, Law, Bachelor of Commerce and Statistics. If you possess any of these degrees, you will find it easy to join Sanlam Insurance.

Since Sanlam does not always have readily available jobs,a job seeker is encouraged to drop a blind application to the company. What you should do is, make your CV as attractive as possible, then apply for a position you feel suits your aspirations, apply through the company email or simply go to the company’s headquarter and drop your CV.

If you apply for the jobs regularly without being called for an interview, upgrade your education. I will suggest you pursue ACII and CFA to increase your chances of securing employment at Sanlam. You also need to pursue Actuarial professional certification if you are aspiring to be an actuary.

Finally, at Sanlam, you should be ready to earn R20,000 to R50,000 per month .The highest paid employees are actuaries, who pocket at least R60,000 per month.
