At Bupa Australia we are one company, one team – but we’ve come from many. We are an exciting blend of international and home grown trusted brands fused together as one. Separately, we were impressive, but together we can be truly inspirational.

We reward our people and celebrate their success. We provide initiatives that develop careers, look after our people’s health, and assist in obtaining work-life balance. In return, industry bodies recognise us as an employer of choice, and we enjoy excellent employee satisfaction and retention rates.

Support for your career

Inspired people are always growing, learning and developing. At Bupa, we seek to ensure our people have the skills and competencies needed to achieve the outcomes required of their current role, and that of the role to which they aspire.

Our people are offered a range of leadership and development programs, including funded training programs, continuing education grants and individual programs, which include:

  • Short programs that support leadership development
  • Tailored long-term programs that build and enhance leadership capability. For example, our leaders have the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications in the Certificate IV Frontline Management and Diploma of Business
  • Financial support and study leave for continuing education outside our programs
  • International secondment program to give our people the opportunity to experience living and working in a different country in the Bupa world.
  • Commitment to promoting from within, supported by a policy of advertising opportunities within Bupa internally.

Support for a healthier lifestyle

We like to practice what we preach and encourage our people to lead a healthy lifestyle by supporting staff involvement in a number of health and wellbeing initiatives across Australia. These include onsite health checks, information packs, seminars, pedometer challenges, flu vaccinations, discounted gym memberships and entry into fun runs and cycling events. We also help people quit smoking with a generous refund on nicotine replacement therapies.

We take work-life balance seriously and have a number of initiatives in place to support this, including flexible work practices, part-time hours and remote work options.
