nib has welcomed thirteen young professionals across Australia to its 2023 Graduate Program.
The company said it is its single biggest annual intake of graduates.
The university graduates will undertake a two-year rotation program within their chosen specialist field across IT, marketing, actuarial and products.
nib chief people officer, Lauren Daniels, said the graduate program is designed to provide mentorship and career development opportunities across the company.
“This is the first time nib has offered a graduate program of this size. It’s about helping young talent put the skills they’ve learnt during their studies into practice,” said Ms Daniels.
“Our new grads will gain invaluable experience with an ASX-listed company, that is an international health and travel partner,” she said.
The company said its 2023 Graduate Program also includes mentoring, access to ongoing learning courses and resources, as well as nib’s workplace benefits, including hybrid working. The graduates are based in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne and Brisbane.
“Each graduate will be able to experience all that ‘life at nib’ has to offer. This includes our flexible work arrangements, with the option to work from home or at one of our hubs.
“They will also get access to a bunch of employee benefits, including health and travel insurance discounts, corporate fitness passes, wellbeing programs and annual employee events,” said Ms Daniels.
nib graduate program participant, Soneeka Pratap, said she was excited to be offered a position and looks forward to starting her career in Data Engineering.
“I graduated with a Postgraduate degree in Data Science and Business Analytics after making a career change from the medical science field when I moved to Australia from my hometown in New Zealand.
“Changing careers feels like starting all over again, so nib’s graduate program excites me, as I know I will have the support of my team and mentor,” she said.
“I think it’s also a great way to learn and broaden my skills. Having a health background, I can appreciate the importance of data analysis in supporting business decisions and, ultimately, members’ better health and well-being,” she added.
