QBE is one of the top 20 of the world’s insurers and reinsurers worldwide. We employ more than 14,500 people in 37 countries and have a presence in all of the key global insurance markets. As a member of the QBE Insurance Group, QBE Australia is in the business of managing risk. Our ability to satisfy our customers’ risk management needs is at the heart of what we do.


We continue to develop our ability to deliver a broad competitive product range, high levels of service, in particular claims service, and a degree of flexibility our competitors find difficult to match. From home and contents, motor and travel insurance to cover for mining companies, universities, cargo ships and wineries, we aim to make things possible in the communities in which we operate.

Our purpose is to give people the confidence to achieve their ambitions and do this by helping them manage risks so they focus on the outcome they desire, not the potential barriers holding them back. For our employees, we are committed to helping them reach their own personal and professional goals at QBE, and we understand the importance of rewarding people for their performance.


At QBE our people are selected for their ability, experience, potential and ‘make it happen’ attitude. We view our people as our most precious asset and believe diversity and inclusion is essential for a strong and successful company. Our broad and diverse business means we look for people with a range of skills and backgrounds in areas such as Claims, Underwriting, Finance, Sales, IT, Professional Support and Corporate Support.


Headquartered in Sydney, we have offices in more than 30 offices spanning each state and territory.


We are one of Australia’s largest insurers, offering all major lines of general insurance cover for personal and commercial risks.


QBE recruits employees from a range of disciplines. To view current opportunities please visit www.qbe.com.au/careers.

We also have an annual recruitment intake for our Graduate Program, where LGBTI graduates are strongly encouraged to apply.

At QBE, we provide opportunities for those who work with us to chart an exciting career within a culture that is inclusive, flexible and supportive. We recognise the value of a diverse workforce and aim to create a workplace which is representative of our wider community. We are the proud recipients of the Australian HR Awards Employer of Choice in the greater than 1,000 employees category and the Best Workplace Diversity and Inclusion Program for 2015. Our employee resource group, QBE Pride, is active in promoting and celebrating diversity at QBE. QBE Pride aims to facilitate an open and safe culture for everyone, part of which involves educating our leaders and employees about LGBTI inclusion in the workplace.

Brandon Quinn Corporate Lawyer and QBE Pride Steering Committee Member

In my seven years at QBE, I’ve been fortunate to be a part of a highly effective legal team led by a manager who sees the value in our people and who understands our team’s effectiveness is enhanced by being diverse and inclusive. I’ve been fortunate to have opportunities and support, which may not have been available to other LGBTI people. I’m proud to be part of an organisation that creates a safe and empowering workplace for all LGBTI employees.
