Our goal is to create a business with a very contemporary dynamic. We are values-based and success driven, and want to attract ambitious, creative and entrepreneurial people from all across Australia and abroad.

That’s what we’re looking for. But what’s in it for you? Well, we believe in ensuring our staff are motivated and set up to succeed, and as part of that we have a range of staff benefits that can profit you both personally and professionally. Here are a few examples:-

  • Career direction from day one to set you up to succeed
  • Professional study support
  • Income protection insurance
  • Superannuation contribution
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Parental leaveabove statutory entitlements
  • Staff discounts on travel; JB Hi-Fi goods; travel and health insurance

Please note, some of these benefits only become available to staff once they have been employed by the company for 12 months.

What can recruitment candidates expect from us?

If you make it as far as the interview stage for a role at Arthur J. Gallagher you’ve already shown considerable promise earlier in the application process.

As well as looking for candidates who match the selection criteria and can hit the ground running in their new roles, we also consider their potential to grow professionally with us and how good a fit they will be culturally, both into the wider business and their specific branch.

We are an equal opportunity employer and place great importance in hiring individuals who can share in and contribute to upholding our company values – what we refer to as The Gallagher Way’.

Prior to being offered a role, candidates are also required to undergo a psychometric assessment. This is nothing to fear, and is simply a means of determining an individual’s key strengths, personality type, motivations and interests.

When we’re ready to make an offer we will check your references and your eligibility to work in Australia. From that point on we’ll be ready to welcome you into the AJG family.

Employees of AJG are also eligible to help us unearth the next star hire through our Employee Referral Program. Read about that here
