Community Support & Partnerships
Community is important to Bupa, and we’re proud to partner with a range of programs that deliver meaning and positive change. This is part of our commitment to making the world healthier, happier and more sustainable.
Bupa cares about community health. And we put our money where our mouth is. Since 2005, we have invested over $32 million of profits into the Bupa Foundation.
We partner with over 110 organisations, including Conservation Volunteers Australia, Kids Helpline, UNICEF Australia and Project Crimson Trust – Trees That Count. Our investments have moved the needle for health research and mental health models of care, helping to make Australia a world leader in sustainable, affordable healthcare. A career at Bupa makes you a partner in this change too.
Stronger communities lead to a stronger world. At Bupa, we celebrate our staff members’ passion for giving back, helping them to free up time to achieve their volunteering goals. Eligible employees can use volunteer leave to work with your chosen charity, and there are even opportunities for donation-matching.
We also encourage our people to share in our passions. For instance, Bupa currently partners with Paralympics Australia, supporting the 2024 team as they prepare to head off to Paris to represent the green and gold. We believe in everyone’s ability to follow their dreams, whether it’s on the field, in the pool or beyond.
Sending Our Support
We recently sent 30 Bupa team members to lend a helping hand to Paralympics Australia. They assisted the organisation during Team Processing events around the country, helping our star Para-athletes as they prepare for the 2024 Summer Paralympics in Paris.
Bupa is passionate about the health of our planet. We believe that the actions we take today can lead to better outcomes tomorrow.
We are dedicated advocates for sustainability, investing in forward-thinking programs that aim at making real, meaningful change to our environment. United by our One Planet Health initiative and Eco-Disruptive global talent program, we don’t shy away from the challenges that, increasingly, define our world.
Ensuring that the healthcare industry is open to everyone is crucial for Bupa. That’s why we partner with WomenCAN Australia, a charity that offers training, support and employment opportunities to vulnerable women interested in a career in aged care.
WomenCAN provides paid traineeships in a range of roles across Bupa’s regional-Victoria aged care homes. On-the-job and externally accredited training are provided to women from a variety of vulnerable backgrounds, including migrants, refugees, the elderly and those at risk of financial insecurity. The program aims to place women in permanent roles at Bupa upon successful completion, helping them build skills and confidence as they embark on a rewarding new career.
Delivering impactful healthcare means ensuring you grow with your Bupa career. We offer a wide range of skills-based opportunities and leadership training, designed to help you grow in your role and beyond.
Our learning and development programs are designed to meet your needs, helping you to move forward in your career, whichever the stage, whatever the role. You'll have access to industry recognised certifications and accreditations, as well as BOLD, our on-demand learning platform.
Leaders play a pivotal role in delivering our strategy, shaping our culture, and creating our customer and people experiences. Our approach to leadership development is building leaders who create the future, connect with curiosity, and achieve results. We have Asia Pacific-wide leadership development programs for leaders as they progress through their career journey, and a learning platform providing access to even more ongoing development opportunities.
