We’re known as a leading healthcare group, but we’re so much more than that.

Bupa can offer you the support and direction you need to get to where you want to be in the future. We're a diverse business, so you’ll gain exposure and insight into how a global company operates. As you move through your various placements, you'll learn how to navigate across different business areas, manage multiple stakeholders and get involved in various projects.
Our blended learning programme means you’ll get more than just practical experience. You’ll also be working towards an MSc Digital and Technology Solutions, Level 7 qualification provided in partnership with Manchester Metropolitan University. You’ll be encouraged to apply what you’ve learnt in your role, turning theory into reality while developing skills that will last a lifetime.
Throughout all of this you’ll also have the support of a Graduate Manager, who’ll be on hand to provide you with encouragement, development opportunities, and look after your wellbeing. They’ll support you to instil Bupa’s culture, values, and behaviours, deliver excellent customer service and build solid relationships across the business while developing skills such as stakeholder management and problem solving.

In 2018 we launched our everyone’s welcome pledge, cementing our commitment to inclusion quite literally into the side of our building in Salford Quays. Since then we’ve been ranked in the top 10 Inclusive employers in the UK twice by Inclusive Companies and regularly win awards for our commitment. We believe in creating an inclusive environment where everyone can bring their true self to work every day. That’s why we launched our colleague network, Be You At Bupa, helping us all celebrate uniqueness of each and every one of our colleagues and the experiences they can bring. No matter our differences we believe everyone should be treated fairly, regardless of background, disability or circumstance. That’s why we’re happy to offer reasonable adjustments as part of our recruitment process to anyone that needs them.
