What it’s like to work at TAL

Our culture

We believe every Australian life is different, and so are their career paths. With diversity and inclusion at the core of our culture, we actively seek out people from all walks of life with varied points of view.

We don’t just encourage our people to shape our culture, we depend on it. And we ensure a positive working experience every day, so team members can perform at their best and develop skills and capabilities that are aligned to their growth and TAL’s success.

Our pay and recognition

We know that purpose and recognition go hand-in-hand, so we’re eager to celebrate the achievements of our people, and reward them for their contributions.

Our commitment to diversity and our focus on gender pay equality mean our people are paid fairly. And every year we look into salary data across the industry to make sure our rates are competitive.

Beyond financial rewards, we have recognition programs so we can freely acknowledge the great work of individuals and teams. It’s important to us to call out the accomplishments, employment milestones and anniversaries of our people, as these are key to our success as a firm.

Our development and growth

We employ talented people and present them with opportunities to map out a fulfilling career. We know our people live full lives, so we offer avenues for personal and career development, including:

  • Coaching and mentoring – we help our people chart their unique career pathway, which means identifying and building on their strengths and broadening their capabilities.

  • Extensive training opportunities – we offer many learning possibilities which can be matched to areas of interests. This includes educational resources and sessions from our internal experts, as well as opportunities from our industry-leading external partners, plus education assistance.

  • Career development programs – our structured approach to performance and career progression is well established. We also think holistically, tailoring career needs with life circumstances (e.g. helping to factor in the needs of working parents).

  • Internal career opportunities – we want to make the best use of our people and their skills, by helping with internal career moves if it aligns with the individual’s interests.

Our community

People are at the heart of everything we do. And this way of thinking has guided us for almost 150 years.

That’s why we have a sponsorship and corporate social responsibility program to help give back to this great country. In line with our mission to look after the lifestyles of Australians, we have ongoing initiatives to support the health and wellness of Australian communities, and also to empower them through financial education. 

Beyond our dollar-matching programs for donations, our people can dedicate a day of their time each year to support a charity of their choice, individually or as a team.  

Our benefits

Our people have access to a number of benefits that help make TAL a great place to work. Here are just a handful of them:

  • A generous employee insurance plan – we’re proud of our products which help Australians make the most of life, so we want to help our people experience what it’s like to be covered by us.
  • A focus on health and wellbeing programs – our commitment to a healthy workplace includes facilities like on-site gyms. As well as policies that support the lifestyles of our people, like free parking for expectant mums.
  • Product discounts – our team members enjoy discounts on health insurance, hotels, computers and movie tickets. 
  • A social club – we host regular and diverse activities to allow our people to connect, unwind and celebrate.

Offices around Australia

Our offices are located in the hearts of major cities around Australia. These are bright and modern spaces, which are accessible and aim to match your way of working. 

We have collaboration zones, quiet rooms, modern meeting rooms or open-plan desk areas, as well as employee lounges. 

Flexibility is important for us – aligning your life needs with your work needs. So many people choose to work from home on a regular or ad hoc basis.
