About TAL Australia

  • Banking & Financial Services

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 thoughtleaders 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 graduate 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.

Have you got what it takes to join Australia’s leading life insurance specialist? Be part of a selective program developing our future leaders.

We embrace diversity and encourage applications from people of all backgrounds. Our application process can be modified to meet specific needs. Please let us know if you require support.

What Graduates Say About Them
  • The people and great company culture, workplace flexibility, development opportunities.
  • Opportunity for sponsored professional development, opportunity to carve your path in the business and opportunity to do meaningful and challenging work.
  • Good culture reflected in the willingness to train up new starters. Everyone is always happy for questions to be asked and all contributions are valued.
  • A graduate program with rotations - exposure to a range of areas within my discipline. Workplace flexibility.
  • Great culture, great support and mentorship from management, a wide range of opportunities for graduates
  • Unpredictable industry can cause a bit of uncertainty e.g. company restructures
  • Management expectations can sometimes be misaligned with what is achievable.
  • Slow to move on big projects
  • Still a lot of manual work and testing, which leaves minimal time for analysis work
  • The only challenge so far is the fact that the industry, and TAL itself has undergone significant change. This has created some complexity in my day to day responsibilities. However, I have taken this as a challenge to try and simplify work processes.
