Launch your career with us

At MetLife, we believe the key to a positive working environment is creating a collaborative community with diverse perspectives and a united vision.

Celebrating diversity

MetLife offers a supportive work culture with an emphasis on collaboration both within local teams and across the MetLife global community. 

We value diversity of background, thought and culture, which is why we've set up initiatives like the Women's Business Network to drive personal and professional development among our employees.

Serving our community

We want to help build a safe and supportive community, that offers a better quality of life for all. That's why we make Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) one of our core values.

In addition to our employee volunteer programs and charitable donations, we're proud to partner with organisations that promote mental health and wellbeing, resilience and inclusion in the community.

This year, we've chosen The Black Dog Institute as our supported charity - a world leader in the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mood disorders such as depression and bipolar disorder.

Throughout the year, our employees carry out fundraising activities for Black Dog. To support them, we give all our permanent staff up to one day per year as paid volunteer leave, and match the funds they raise.

A thriving team

We know that a successful team is made up of happy people. So we create an environment to support the physical, social and emotional wellbeing of our employees. 

Our employee Thrive program comprises a number of initiatives to achieve this vision, including:

  • Diversity and Inclusion Committee
  • Social Club
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Wellbeing and Safety Committee
