Our culture

When you choose a career with Teachers Health Fund, you will become part of a committed and loyal team striving to deliver our shared vision – ‘to be the first choice health insurance provider for all eligible members.’

We have a unique and strong culture that has developed over the past 58 years. We are a diverse, friendly and inviting workplace where people genuinely care about each other which is shown in our regular Employee Satisfaction Survey which consistently rates high. This positive attitude is reflected in how we deal with each other and with our members.

Here is what some of our current staff members have to say about us

“It is refreshing and rewarding to work for an organisation that is not-for-profit and really does have the best interests of their members at heart.” – Hayden, Contact Centre

“I’ve never worked at a place where sitting right next to my direct manager has actually been an enjoyable thing!” – Robert, Member Relations

“It’s a great organisation to work for and we look after our employees well, supporting staff in their pursuits to further their education and practicing equality of men and women in the workforce. I am very proud to be part of this great organisation.” – Ozzie, Teachers Health Fund Eyecare
