We are a highly-respected and ethical global employer with a strong culture. Join our GB family, get valuable work experience, and explore the range of exciting career opportunities in the insurance industry.


At GB, one of our key responsibilities is to support individuals who have been injured in the workplace, and assisting in their return to employment. It requires care and compassion. And our Claims Officers are there every step of the way, supporting the individual's recovery, liaising with employers and treating health practitioners, and positively influencing the return to work process.

In our Self-Insurance division, our claims team works particularly closely with our clients, the employers. This partnership helps employers reduce their insurance costs, and improve their business performance and safety record, whilst also supporting the return to work process.

As an intern in our NT operation, you will be a part of our Gallagher Bassett family. You will work alongside experienced and dedicated claims staff, and be exposed to a wide variety of roles and processes within the Self-Insurance division.

What's included?

  • six-weeks paid work experience over summer (January/February 2020)
  • the opportunity to apply your knowledge to challenging, meaningful work
  • relevant training and an individualised development program where you will participate in activities such as role shadowing, project work, and performing the specific duties of a Claims Officer
  • regular coaching and support
  • one-on-one mentoring
  • a pathway to possible employment opportunities post-graduation.

Here are a few comments from previous internship students:

  • "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 very valuable in 'kick-starting' my future career aspirations in the business world."


Gallagher Bassett (GB) is Australia and New Zealand's premier third party claims administrator. We manage claims on behalf of insurers, brokers, government bodies and self-insured organisations. We are part of the leading global risk management and insurance group Arthur J Gallagher & Co, with 27,000 great people worldwide.

We care for our customers, our people, our owners, the community and their future. And we are proud to be named on the Ethisphere Institute's 2019 World's Most Ethical Companies list for the eighth consecutive year.

Candidates must also have a passion for helping others, as this is part of our DNA at Gallagher Bassett. We're here to support people through a difficult time, and empathy is important.

Another key component of our selection process is cultural fit. We have a strong culture here at GB, and we want to know that students entering our organisation will feel right at home.
