For Organisations

The Blake Oliver Connect Event made waves in 2023, earning acclaim for its groundbreaking innovative idea. 

We were proudly awarded the Innovation In Recruitment Award at the 2023 SEEK SARA Awards!

Award Winning Event

Like most organisations in insurance, you’re experiencing a talent shortage.

Blake Oliver, in conjunction with ANZIIF and InsurTech Australia, are hosting an exclusive, invitation-only event for shortlisted students.

The event is targeted at students to bridge the gap between university and a career in Insurance.

Event Purpose & Goals

The event is limited to 12 companies across broking, underwriting, insurtech, reinsurance, claims and risk management. 

Each organisation will have their own table of students. Students will learn about the viable career paths within the wider insurance industry.

Students will hear directly from industry leaders and listen to your stories about why it’s such a great industry to work in.


  1. Educated students about the diverse career opportunities in the insurance industry.
  2. Connect students with leading global companies with graduate/entry-level jobs available.
  3. Increase the talent pool of students entering the insurance industry. We want people to choose this industry, instead of ‘falling’ into it.

Post Event

After the event, organisations will receive access to a locked website containing video interviews of ALL students who attended the event. You’ll also have access to their contact details, resume, university course and estimated graduation date.

In addition, there will be no agency fee associated to hiring any student, now or in the future.
