nib welcomes young professionals to 2023 grad program
nib Group (nib) has welcomed thirteen young professionals across Australia to its 2023 Graduate Program, the company’s single biggest annual intake of graduates to date.
From 30 January, the university graduates will undertake a two-year rotation program within their chosen specialist field across IT, Marketing, Actuarial and Products.
nib Group Chief People Officer, Lauren Daniels, said the graduate program is designed to provide mentorship and career development opportunities across nib.
“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,” Ms Daniels said.
“Our new grads will gain invaluable experience with an ASX-listed company, that is an international health and travel partner,” she said.
The 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,” Ms Daniels said.
nib graduate program participant, Soneeka Pratap, said she was excited to be offered a position, and looks forward to kickstarting 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,” Soneeka 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 wellbeing,” she added.
Ms Daniels said the launch of its 2023 Graduate Program coincides with nib’s recent recognition as a Grad Connection Top 100 Most Popular Graduate Employer.
“We’re thrilled to be recognised as a Top 100 graduate employer and we’re looking forward to hearing from the experiences of our own graduates this year,” Ms Daniels said.
