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 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.

Through a coordinated approach of initiatives, the TAL Community Foundation has created a space for giving, interacting, sharing and connecting with each other and the community with the aim of making meaningful impact on social and community issues and support employee involvement in the community. The Community Foundation is an important pillar at TAL; contributes to our culture and builds a positive people experience.
The Foundation has three key focus areas and over $6M in cash has been invested to support initiatives within these:
Over the past 5 years, TAL has been humbled to work with our valued community partners providing not only our organisation but also our people opportunities to make a positive difference within the Australian community. Our partners provide our people the opportunity to deepen their connection to the cause with activities such as one off mentoring programs with school students and young people, to supporting education in remote communities in the Northern Territory.
We want to help our people support community causes. That's why we offer a paid community leave day each year to help the community. Over the past 5 years, TAL people have donated over 12,000 volunteering hours in short mentoring programs.
Through our Fundraising Matching Program we will match all employee funds raised to double the difference you make for your chosen charity or community group.
"Having joined TAL as part of the Graduate cohort of 2020, the opportunity to join the TAL Community Foundation Council is incredibly exciting.
Whether it is donating time or money, volunteering has always been an extremely important aspect of my life. I am fortunate to have joined a company that places such a high emphasis on giving back, and I am especially looking forward to ensuring we leave a positive mark on Australian communities."
