We create opportunities for our people to achieve their full potential


To support our employees to achieve their potential, we provide access to the professional development they need to excel in their careers, offered through both internal and external programs. We know one of the best ways to learn is with an excellent teacher; QBE actively encourages mentoring in our teams as well as training and coaching to share information and promote learning from the experience of colleagues. Role-specific development pathways are also available to help our people reach their potential in their current role.


QBE is committed to developing long-term careers and we offer our employees tools and resources designed to help identify their goals and achieve the skills they need to reach them. We have a range of development opportunities, from training and coaching, through to secondments and role changes. We help our people explore new possibilities in their careers, so they can plan and take action. Individual goals are formalised through a Personal Development Plan for each employee, allowing you to set goals and increase your prospects for gaining qualifications and furthering your career.


Strong leadership is highly valued at QBE. We now need to build leadership effectiveness to create leaders who clarify and set expectations, proactively manage talent and support employees to succeed in their roles. Leadership effectiveness is demonstrated through our DNA, every day behaviours and demonstrating relevant capabilities.

We want to create a common language about what we expect of QBE leaders, targeting our development investment, holding leaders accountable and embedding this into our core people processes – essentially creating a high performing culture with heart. It’s now more important than ever to have future-ready leaders who are able to lead with direction and act by example. Our QBE-tailored development approach aims to improve the quality of conversations through learned practical skills to enhance our leaders’ capabilities to lead, coach and manage people, while gaining a higher level of self-awareness and appreciation of factors that underpin that behaviour.

Global opportunities

An Australian company with a global reach, QBE offers our employees a world of opportunity. With offices in all Australian states and territories, and five divisions around the globe, we value mobility across our business and encourage offices interstate and overseas to collaborate and innovate. For those wishing to broaden their horizons, a range of international secondments and global projects are possible.

Chief Executive Women (CEW) Leaders Program

We support the development of our talented female leaders through our ongoing participation in the Chief Executive Women (CEW) Program. The program provides participants with an opportunity to further develop their leadership skills and grow their professional networks.
