Joining TAL as a graduate

We’re looking for graduates who want to bring their passion and skills to a business that makes a real difference to the lives  of Australians. 

At TAL, there’s no limit to where your career can go. We only take a small number of graduates each year, so they’re highly sought-after right across the business. Graduates work alongside industry thought-leaders with support from dedicated sponsors, buddies and career managers. 

Our program is designed to help graduates be the best they can be. 

We believe in challenging you 

The two-year TAL program has been designed to challenge graduates by immersing them in four key areas of our business, both within their field of study and beyond, ensuring they gain a holistic view of our business across the entire life insurance lifecycle.  

We provide development pathways tailored to your goals, to help you gain the skills you need to grow. This includes support for further related study and professional qualifications, where relevant. E.g. Actuarial Education Assistance, FSAA of the IAA and CA, plus study and exam leave.

 For our 2017 Graduate Program, we’re offering roles in: 

  • Business – Relationship Management, Sales and Marketing (Melbourne)

  • IT (Sydney)

Roles currently filled for our 2017 Graduate Program:

  • Finance (Sydney)
  • Actuarial (Sydney)
We’re selective for a very good reason

When it comes to choosing graduates for our program, we’re highly selective. That’s because we see it as a chance to find the future leaders of our business. 

We’re looking for graduates who have:

  • a strong academic track record (a credit average or above), or, proof of being able to achieve great outcomes

  • a well-rounded background with experience across community and / or extra-curricular activities

  • effective communication skills

  • an interest in a role that not only embraces analytical skills but is also customer focused

  • leadership qualities developed through university, work experience and / or extracurricular activities

  • initiative and drive, and who work well both individually and in a team environment

  • completed or are due to complete undergraduate or post-graduate studies by the end of 2016, and 

  • a desire to help Australians make the most of their life. 

We embrace diversity and encourage applications by people from all backgrounds. We’re also committed to providing a positive, barrier-free recruitment process and supportive workplace.
