About VMIA

Victorian Managed Insurance Authority (VMIA) is the Victorian Government's insurer and risk adviser, covering the people and projects that help Victorians thrive. We're an agency in the Department of Treasury and Finance portfolio established under the Victorian Managed Insurance Authority Act, and report to the Assistant Treasurer.

We provide insurance and risk advice to government departments and agencies, with more than 4,600 clients ranging from small community service organisations to public hospitals, schools, and core service providers. We also provide domestic building insurance to builders, giving Victorian homeowners peace of mind for building projects valued over $16,000.

We help our clients prepare for, prevent, or reduce the impact of harm. When things don't go to plan, we help clients restore services and recover quickly.

Our unique perspective across Victorian Government clients provides an opportunity for learning and development across the risk and insurance industry as well as the broader public sector, creating deeper connections with our clients, and a shared understanding of best practice in our fields of expertise.

People are at the heart of everything we do. At VMIA, you'll be encouraged to achieve your career goals in a progressive and flexible workplace that, most importantly lets you be yourself.
