Graduate | People Experience (PX)

I was initially attracted to Suncorp because of the reputation it has for its graduate program. Graduates are given the right tools to devevlop themselves so they can become future business leaders. I have a close friend, Ryan De Weijer, who is also a PX graduate and seeing him excel in his roles and enjoy himself, gave me great confidence I could do the same.

As People Experience/HR graduate at Suncorp, I genuinely feel like I’m making a difference. The role is engaging because it exposes me to a wide variety of people throughout the business. It also challenges me to find solutions, directly making positive impacts on the people within the organisation, which I find very satisfying.

There is such a wide array of teams that sit within PX. From Recruitment, Learning & Development, People Solutions and People & Performance, to name just a few, it really feels like your opportunity to learn and develop new skills is forever expanding. 

There are a range of benefits to the Suncorp Graduate Program, and I enjoy the flexibility with options such as working from home and flexible start and finishing times. The company trusts its employees to be productive and efficient without having to micromanage. This type of freedom really allows us to feel like we’re taking ownership of our roles.

The Graduate Program also provides a great opportunity to build your confidence and to remember to believe in yourself. It can be quite daunting being a young graduate amongst a sea of experienced people; having to assert yourself in meetings and in your role on a day to day basis. It is not always easy. Engaging and presenting your ideas to more senior people in the organisation can be daunting but is always encouraged. Knowing these ideas are of value in discussions is important for individual growth.

It’s hard to say what the future holds for me other than that I know I want to keep learning and discovering what it is I am passionate about. Where that will take me, I cannot be sure, however I know I enjoy finding solutions for problems, especially when they are people related.
