Graduate – Data Engineering Technology

I’ve always admired organisations who demonstrate their vested interest in enabling women to grow in industries that aren’t traditionally female dominated. So, when I saw Suncorp had an intern program specifically for women in Information Technology, I was immediately attracted to the opportunity. It was clear to me that there was a lot of support and recognition for girls in the tech world at Suncorp.  

My initial nervousness about the program quickly dissipated when I saw how welcoming my new team was. The managers at Suncorp are really supportive and approachable. So, wh…

Sally

Graduate – Business Banking

I’m passionate about rural communities. The community, the people – I just love it.

I grew up on a broadacre farm in Central West New South Wales, and I’ve always wanted to live and work rurally.

In my final year of study, I had a few people encourage me to pursue banking as a great way to grow your career and be out on the farms, without being tied down to one spot.

One thing that really attracted me to Suncorp's graduate program was the opportunity to rotate through different teams. It was exciting to me that I’d be able to see different towns and industries, and always be moving and trying new things. E…

Graduate – Insurance Underwriter 

From day one I’ve been responsible for work that affects the business, working on large accounts from start to finish and working with senior leaders on major projects.

Being on the Grad Program has seen me rotate through four different positions o…

Spirit to Cure

Spirit to Cure is a Suncorp initiative that started in 2021, raising money for cancer research, support and prevention. In 2021 we raised $1.3 million, exceeding our $500,000 goal. We held a 21 km walk and 350 km ride in both NSW and QLD.

Building a stronger Queensland | Resilience Rd

Along with leading scientists and industry experts, we architecturally designed ‘One House to Save Many’, a house that could help withstand Queensland’s extreme weather events.

The learnings from this were used to make the homes on Resilience Rd the strongest they can be. Taking inspiration from the iconic Queenslander, the results from the One House project enabled us to qualify specific design principles and demonstrate how clever use of design and material selection can dramatically increase the resilience of a home.

The upgrades to each of the homes on Resilience Rd have been specifically selected to help withstand extreme weather events, such as bushfires, floods, and cyclones.
