We Protect People, Not Things

For nearly 150 years, TAL has been protecting people, not things. So we know people are at the heart of what we do and the key to our success.

We’re committed to providing a work environment that empowers our team members to perform at their best. And we’re focused on developing leadership, promoting diversity and work/life balance, rewarding excellence and retaining great talent. We’re always on the look-out for team members who can join our mission to protect This Australian Life.

Discover Life @ TAL

Here at TAL our culture is what sets us apart. Easy to say, but in our case its true. We pride ourselves on inclusivity with one third of our employees speaking a language other than English at home and we are committed to helping all employees fit work around their life.

We value accountability, ethics, innovation, collaboration and empathy. Above all, we have a passion for our customers. We regularly ask our people how they feel about working for us so we can build a supportive and inclusive culture.

Development & Growth

We employ talented people and present them with opportunities to map out a fulfilling career. We know our people live full lives, so we offer avenues for personal and career development, including...

Coaching and mentoring: we help our people chart their unique career pathway, which means identifying and building on their strengths and broadening their capabilities.

Extensive training opportunities: we offer many learning possibilities which can be matched to areas of interests. This includes educational resources and sessions from our internal experts, as well as opportunities from our industry-leading external partners, plus education assistance.

Career development programs: our structured approach to performance and career progression is well established. We also think holistically, tailoring career needs with life circumstances (e.g. helping to factor in the needs of working parents).

Internal career opportunities: we want to make the best use of our people and their skills, by helping with internal career moves if it aligns with the individual’s interests.

Our Community

People are at the heart of everything we do. And this way of thinking has guided us for almost 150 years.

That’s why we have a sponsorship and corporate social responsibility program to help give back to this great country. In line with our mission to look after the lifestyles of Australians, we have ongoing initiatives to support the health and wellness of Australian communities, and also to empower them through financial education.

Beyond our dollar-matching programs for donations, our people can dedicate a day of their time each year to support a charity of their choice, individually or as a team.

Our Benefits

Our people have access to a number of benefits that help make TAL a great place to work. Here are just a handful of them...

A generous employee insurance plan: we’re proud of our products which help Australians make the most of life, so we want to help our people experience what it’s like to be covered by us.

A focus on health and well-being programs: our commitment to a healthy workplace includes facilities like an on-site gym in Sydney as well as policies that support the lifestyles of our people, like free parking for expectant mums.

Product discounts: our team members enjoy discounts on health insurance, hotels, computers and movie tickets.

A social club: we host regular and diverse activities to allow our people to connect, unwind and celebrate.
