What volunteering opportunities are available at Allianz?

Making a difference and giving back to the community is really important to Allianz, which is why we offer all employees one paid day per year to volunteer with a charity of their choice, and the ability to donate to our selected charity partners from their pre-tax pay. We also proudly partner with Paralympics Australia on employment opportunities for para-athletes and Settlement Services International to support refugees and migrants with scholarships and employment opportunities.

I want to pursue further study in a few years, does Allianz support fees related to external training?

In some instances, Allianz provides study assistance to complete your industry qualifications, such as Actuarial certification. Other external training or qualifications are reviewed and approved on an individual basis and should be discussed with your manager prior to your applying for your external course.

Our Grads are hired as permanent employees- it’s our way of showing your we’re serious about your development and career. After the two year program, we’ll work with you to find a role that aligns with your interest, experience and skills.
