Are you passionate about making a difference? Would you like to contribute to improving the lives of millions of Australians? If so, the superannuation industry could be the place for you!
What is superannuation?
Superannuation – we call it ‘super’ for short – is a way to save for your retirement. The money comes from contributions made into your super fund by your employer. Over the course of your working life, these contributions add up, or ‘accumulate’.
It’s the role of a super fund to invest your money so that it earns interest and grows over time. In a way it’s just like a savings account at a bank, except that you can’t access your money until later in life.
But the great thing about not being able to touch your money now, is that when you do retire, you’ll hopefully have accumulated enough money to replace the income you were earning while you were working.
At AustralianSuper, our sole focus is on building tomorrow.
The best possible retirement outcome for our members – more money in their accounts, when it matters – is all that matters to us. It’s a pretty big job to be responsible for the retirement savings of more than 2 million people. That’s why we harness the latest in technology and innovation to help us make it happen. We also have some of the best people in the industry on our team – people who want to make a difference to the lives of others and share our values of Energy, Integrity, Generosity of Spirit and Excellent Outcomes. It’s an exciting time to be part of AustralianSuper and opportunities for career development are opening up all the time.
We offer careers in investments, marketing, human resources, digital, customer service, accounting and IT to name a few.
We’ve got huge plans for the future. We have an office in Beijing and this year we have just opened up a London office too. We’re already the largest industry super fund in Australia; now we’re going to take on the world!
