Our purpose

We are a purposeful, commercial organisation. Bupa's purpose is: longer, healthier, happier lives. It defines everything we do and is the reason we exist. With no shareholders, our profits are reinvested to provide more and better healthcare fulfilling our purpose.

As a leading global health and care company, we offer health insurance, medical subscription and other health and care funding products; we run care homes, retirement and care villages, primary care, diagnostic and wellness centres, hospitals and dental clinics. We also provide workplace health services, health assessments and long-term condition management services.

We employ 84,000 people who are making this a reality for our 32 million customers in 190 countries worldwide. Do you want to play a part in our success? If you have the belief, drive and the talent to help us in our ambition to become a true healthcare partner, then we want to hear from you!

Being on the frontline of healthcare, our people are focused on improving the health of millions. We all want to make a real difference in tackling the toughest challenges in healthcare.

Achieving our ambitious goals depends on the dedication and talent of all our people, working in new and innovative ways that bring our purpose – longer, healthier, happier lives – to life.

    Direct Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Brighton, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Bupa (Brighton, England) in December 2016.


    Applied for online through a recruiter who sent my CV onto Bupa. I had to do a quick telephone interview when someone in HR who then progressed me on to a 2:1 interview. Following the interview the recruiter called me up to offer me the Job and I am currently going through background checks but I have received my contract.
