GB named top intern programme by Australian Association of Graduate Employers

We are pleased to announce that Gallagher Bassett's (GB) internship program has been placed first in the Australian Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE) list of top intern programs for 2018.

The AAGE is the peak industry body representing organisations that recruit and develop Australian graduates and 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.

This year we welcomed 12 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.

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

“GB has now made AAGE’s Top Intern Programs list for three consecutive years but being placed as number one is a testament to the work GB’s Learning and Development team have put into refining our programme to ensure it supports and provides valuable learning opportunities for all of our interns”.

“It’s great that we can offer great careers and attract talent into the insurance industry” said John.

The Top Intern Programs list was created from a survey of over 900 undergraduates who were part of their employer's intern program sometime in 2017/2018. 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
