If you are motivated and willing to try new things then you will discover challenges and room to grow with QBE.
We've collected a few career stories from some members of the QBE team which might help and inspire you:
"I started with QBE in March 2005 as a Case Manager in the Parramatta Worker's Compensation branch, working my way up to Service Manager in less than a year, which included three secondments. I then decided I wanted a role that would make the most of my Occupational Therapy skills and Worker's Compensation experience, so I moved to my current position as Return to Work Coordinator in Human Resources. Both my branch and business unit manager were very supportive in this move and applying was as easy as clicking a button. This role has really opened my eyes to all the divisions within QBE. There are just so many opportunities for employees to move within the company."
"Having worked as both an Integrated Products Manager and Business Development Manager in Perth, I felt it was time for a new challenge and after talking to my Regional and General Managers, I found out about a position being created which might suit me perfectly. That was when I approached the State Manager to discuss a transfer and here I am now, working as a Distribution Manager. Moving to this role has shown me the importance of relationship skills in our business and how important networking skills are in life, as well as in business. If your looking for new challenges, just ask: spread your wings and you will grow together with QBE."
"About a year go, I decided to make a move across divisions to keep advancing my career. I'd started out eight years previously a Customer Service Officer, moving through to a team leader role and then up to a Supervisor. Being close to home was an important factor for me, so I started to look for opportunities locally. When a secondment in Statutory Classes (Worker’s Compensation) came up, I thought it would be a great way to give something new a try, whilst my old position was kept on hold if I decided it wasn't for me. As it happens, I've never looked back."
