Drive business growth!

Put your excellent communication and relationship management skills to use, and support our team to win new business and enhance our relationships with existing clients.

Our internship program will provide you with the opportunity to work with and learn from experienced, dynamic and forward-thinking executives and senior business leaders at Gallagher Bassett. You will have the chance to create and deliver projects for the team that will have a positive impact on the business, and gain an understanding of what it takes to successfully win and manage large accounts in the insurance industry. You will also work closely with our clients – both corporate and commercial-sized businesses.

Aside from the regular coaching and support from your manager and team, and ongoing interaction with the wider intern group, you will be assigned a mentor to ensure you get the best possible experience. And at the end of the six-week program, we also hope you’ve gained valuable insight into the insurance industry and a possible career with GB after graduation.


We are opening doors to a long-term successful career. In 2018, GB was ranked as having the NUMBER ONE internship program in Australia! Our interns have loved their experience with us!

This year, we’re looking for one motivated student to join our Sales & Account Management team in Melbourne. You will be part of a wider group of interns joining our business across our offices in 2019.

What’s included?

  • six-weeks paid work experience over summer (January/February 2019)
  • three-day orientation in our Brisbane corporate head office, with flights and accommodation provided
  • the opportunity to apply your knowledge to challenging, meaningful work
  • one-on-one mentoring
  • relevant training and development
  • a pathway to possible employment opportunities post-graduation.

Here are a few comments from previous interns:

  • ‘Absolutely amazing experience.’
  • ‘Great environment and culture!’
  • ‘The whole experience will be very difficult to beat. I have truly loved every minute of it!’
  • 'This has been a really valuable experience. The internship is awesome to get an insight into the corporate world, creating networks, and for personal growth and character building. This has been very valuable in ‘kick-starting’ my future careers aspirations in the business world.’


We are looking for individuals studying Business or Commerce who are keen to explore a possible career in the insurance industry. Are you career-focused, with excellent communication and interpersonal skills? Do you have an interest in business development and account management, and a passion for building strong relationships? Then we’d love to hear from you.
