#Graduate learning and development

Structured learning and development program 

Graduates will be enrolled in a series of online training modules, which will develop your technical, leadership, and soft skills, expand your network, and enhance your working experience while still allowing you to have fun! You'll access a range of learning courses via a combination of face-to-face workshops, virtual masterclasses (with all NZ and Australian graduates tuning in) and self-paced learning through our online learning system. That's just the stuff we've prepared for you. Because, as a Suncorp employee, you'll also have access to our broader learning and development program catalogue.

On-the-job learning

Most of your learning is on-the-job, working with cutting edge tech and contributing to our key projects and initiatives that make a visible impact to our customers and community. We provide you with the tools and support to drive your own career, seek out the opportunities that interest you, and work with the people who inspire you.

We offer both specialist and generalist graduate opportunities across our customer marketplace, banking, insurance, corporate, and tech business functions. Our specialist roles will suit graduates who know what they want to do – they’re recruited to a specific role in the business. Our generalist roles include rotations, so they’re perfect for the free spirit types. You'll be recruited to a specific function in our business and rotate into different teams to help you explore and identify what most interests you. We call it flexibility. But, we won't hold your hand. We expect you to take ownership and drive your own career, explore your interests, and utilise your networks and professional relationships. And, as with every Suncorp employee, you'll also have access to our 24hr innovation days, key projects, and innovative initiatives that enable you to make an impact in our business.
