Rachel Shaw - Senior HR Business Partner

"QBE gives you the framework and tools to help make your career what you want it to be. If you want a different local or global experience, it's possible to reach out and grab one. There's nothing stopping you.

I've worked for QBE in New York, Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia. It was a great experience for me to work overseas, because by going there with QBE, I had the familiarity of the core fundamentals and values of the company. It's very reassuring when you can go into a different office anywhere in the world and know there's a common understanding of the way we do business.

The main motivation for my career has always been experiences – it's what led me to seek out my first overseas role in New York. Wherever you are, you have some great days at QBE. My best days are when I feel I've added value to the organisation and made an impact, and when I've gained a lot of energy from those working in the business. People are very supportive of one another here.

My journey with QBE has been amazing. Particularly when you consider the countries I've worked in, and the level of leaders I've worked with. If you jump on opportunities at QBE, and you actively seek them out then the sky's really the limit."
