We are passionate about building a better health system that is centred on people, and sustainable in the long term.

Working at Medibank isn’t just a job – it can be a vital step in your career, helping you progress in the direction you want. Medibank provides employees with a range of career development opportunities, with tools, resources and programs to help you learn, grow and develop your skills.

3. Work at Medibank Place
In 2014, Medibank’s Melbourne employees moved into a vibrant, purpose-built new headquarters in Docklands. Medibank Place is designed with health and wellbeing in mind, with communal green spaces, an edible garden, a demonstration kitchen, basketball courts, smart technology, modern facilities and more. Sustainability is a core value, and the building targets a six-star Green Star and five-star NABERS rating, so you can come to work each day knowing you’re in a positive and productive space.

4. Thrive in a collaborative work environment
Don’t love the idea of being cooped up in a cubicle all day? You won’t be. Medibank Place is designed on the principles of activity-based working, empowering staff to choose where and how they need to work. With a variety of architectural options and workstations – from quiet nooks to collaborative workbenches to creative meeting spaces – you can move freely between spaces throughout the day with your portable laptop and mobile phone. This means you can interact with others when you need to, and get your own space when you need peace and quiet. It’s all up to you.

Medibank provides opportunities to get involved in causes and not-for-profit organisations that are close to our heart. The Medibank Community Fund supports a range of health and wellbeing organisations around Australia, including The Heart Foundation, BeyondBlue, The Australian Red Cross and The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation, along with a wide variety of community-based health initiatives. Medibank employees are encouraged to get involved and share their time, resources and support. You’ll also get a community leave day each year, where you can volunteer for community organisations and be paid your normal salary while you do.

6. Be rewarded and recognised
We believe in rewarding the hard work and achievements of employees. Medibank provides incentive schemes and recognition and reward programs to keep you motivated, and to thank you for the contribution you have made.
