GB listed as a top intern employer for second year running!

Gallagher Bassett has made the list for the Australian Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE) top intern programs for 2017.

The aim of the AAGE’s Top Intern Programs list is to recognise organisations that provide the most positive experience for their interns, as determined by interns themselves.

The list is created from the results of the AAGE’s annual Intern Survey. The survey participants are all current undergraduates who were part of their employer’s intern program. Therefore, respondents have first-hand knowledge of the employer’s intern program.

Interns were asked to rate their employer on around 15 different categories including:

  • Induction and training
  • Content of work
  • Ability to work on different projects or in different areas of the organisation
  • Quality of supervision provided by manager
  • Amount of responsibility
  • Access to senior management
  • Feedback on performance
  • Social life
  • Organisation’s culture and values

John McNamara, GB’s Managing Director of Australia was incredibly proud of GB making AAGE’s 2017 list of top intern programs,

“At GB we pride ourselves in supporting our people and allowing them to realise their full potential and the internship program does just that”, John said.

“For interns, our program provides students and graduates the opportunity to work and gain experience in their chosen field so making the AAGE’s list for the second year in a row is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the greater GB team to support the interns and provide valuable learning opportunities”.

This year we welcomed 11 interns as part of the six week program that is designed to equip young people with the necessary skills and experience to achieve success as professionals in the insurance industry.

We have secured casual, part time and full time positions within the business for a number of interns who participated in the program such as Chloe Valuch, who now works as an Application Support Analyst in our Brisbane office.
