Our Graduates

QBE Australia

Here’s what some of our graduates say about why they chose QBE…

“After attending assessment centres and countless interviews, QBE’s energy about their values stood out against other companies. The QBE Foundation and their energetic approach to products they were developing made me excited to join this community.” - Katharine, Graduate Underwriter

“My experience on the QBE graduate program has been amazing. Through my rotations, I’ve contributed to a range of innovative solutions and learnt from a variety of experts. It’s been exciting to develop technical skills and domain knowledge from this. At the same time, I get to create meaningful impact to such a reputed global insurer and their customers. QBE has a very collaborative and supportive culture, and I’m grateful to have a cohort of graduate peers to bond with! I can say with confidence that I’ve come a long way since the start.” - Michelle, Data & Analytics Graduate

“The QBE Graduate Program has exceeded all my expectations. I am privileged to come to work and be encouraged to continually learn and share my ideas on the projects I am assisting with. I have learnt so much already and feel that I have made my own impact at QBE. I can’t wait for what my future at QBE holds!” - Jacqui, Generalist Graduate

“For a company as large as QBE, the feeling of community that is fostered is not like any other place I have worked. This is instilled through the culture of inclusion, where everyone can grow and develop their personal brand and technical skills through supportive managers, colleagues and learning opportunities” - Harry, Generalist Graduate

“The QBE graduate program helped me find what I wanted to get out of my career. I was extremely fortunate to be able to rotate through all different areas of the business which has allowed me to grow and learn both personally and professionally. I have now completed the program and have a permanent position with QBE as a Case Manager. I studied Communication with a Major in Public Relations at University so this is not something I anticipated to fall in to, but I am so glad that I have as I am now able to really help people bring their lives back together following an injury.” - Mary, Generalist Graduate

Why Choose QBE

QBE Australia

We are inclusive and flexible

QBE Australia recognises the value of a diverse workforce; we believe diversity and inclusion is essential for a strong, successful company. We encourage a working environment that is welcoming, fair and inclusive for all. Our workplace flexibility arrangements allow our people to better balance work-life commitments.

We follow our DNA

Everything we do at QBE is underpinned by our DNA – because we know it's not just what we do that matters, it's how we do it that makes the difference. At QBE, when we show-up for our people, customers, communities or shareholders across the globe:

  • We are customer-centred
  • We are technical experts
  • We are diverse
  • We are fast-paced
  • We are courageous
  • We are accountable
  • We are a team

We help the community

QBE has always played an active role in the communities in which we operate. In 2011 we launched the QBE Foundation, our corporate responsibility initiative. Through the Foundation our employees can engage in a range of community activities, including applying for local grants to charities and causes they're involved with and passionate about, and grants which match their fundraising efforts. Each year our employees are also offered a day of volunteer leave to lend a helping hand to support those in need.

We are innovative

Improvement keeps us competitive and constantly moving so we are focused on measuring customer experiences and carefully evaluate what we do. Many learnings and ideas are also shared through QBE's Innovation Forum, which looks at new ways to improve how we work. Through the Forum we share thinking and recognise and reward those who create innovative, practical ideas across the network.


Diversity diversity icon

QBE Australia

QBE Insurance Group has a core purpose to give people the confidence to achieve their ambitions. Being diverse and inclusive helps us to do this across the markets in which we operate. We can be more innovative and customer-centred when we have an inclusive workplace culture.

We’re all different

At QBE, we’re all different. These differences make us strong. Different perspectives, backgrounds and ways of working contribute to our ability to innovate, challenge and support each other, and serve diverse customers. They are part of our QBE DNA, and they mean we can be customer-centred, technical experts, fast-paced, courageous, accountable and team oriented too.

Difference is one thing, but unless we have inclusion, the diverse mix doesn’t work.

To #mixitup, we need to be inclusive – creating a sense of belonging, valuing uniqueness and enable every person to contribute. We want to ensure everyone can do their best work and feel supported working in a flexible and modern environment.

QBE Australia

QBE Australia acknowledges and pays its respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia, whose ancestral lands and waters we work and live on throughout Australia.

QBE aims to establish a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and the communities we work within. We are committed to building significant and long-standing partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations.

QBE’s corporate responsibility mirrors our insurance role in the community where we are uniquely placed to assist people when they find themselves in need through accident or misadventure.

The Foundation has a simple vision; to help people overcome disadvantage, strengthen their abilities and live more independently, successfully and productively. The Foundation strives to support women and men, both the young and old, to overcome disadvantage and expand on their abilities.

The Foundation commits to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities via partnerships with charity organisations that provide a large array of tailored support depending upon community needs.
