Our application process can vary between program streams, however, the most common application process includes an online assessment, a video interview, and a final assessment centre. At the assessment centre you will take part in a group activity and an individual interview.

Applications for our 2025 graduate program will open in July 2024. Please contact graduates@qbe.com with any questions.


What level of education is required?
A completed bachelor or postgraduate degree is required within the two years prior to the commencement of the program.

What is the academic results requirement?
Having a diverse workforce is important to QBE and we encourage all graduates to apply. However, we do consider your academic achievements in the application process, and this consideration is more heavily weighted in technical program streams.

How do I choose which program stream is right for me?
You can choose up to three program streams of interest. It’s worth noting some of our program streams are niche and require a specific filed of study. For example, the Actuarial stream is highly technical and requires a relevant field of study. For other program streams, your degree discipline isn’t as important. We are confident that our recruitment process helps identify the best fit for you and QBE.

What will I need to apply?
Your resume, a copy of your academic transcript, and proof of your unrestricted Australian working rights.

What is the application process?
To apply, you’ll need to complete an online application form. If you’re successful we’ll ask you to complete some online assessments followed by a video interview. We may then ask you to join us at one of our assessment centres where you’ll have the chance to meet our team and some of our current graduates. 

How many graduates will you be hiring this year?
Our yearly intake is typically between 20 and 25 graduates.

When does the graduate program start?
Our graduate program starts once per year in February.
