Bupa is 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.
We have grown significantly, particularly over the past three years (2013, 2014 and 2015), when we accelerated execution of our Bupa 2020 strategic vision. We are targeting revenues in excess of £12Bn in 2015. Because Bupa does not have shareholders it does not have a listing, but if it did it would be in the FTSE 100. Bupa is not a mutual or a charity but a company limited by guarantee that seeks to maximise its profits in order to fulfil its purpose. With customers in virtually every country in the world and 70% of its revenues now generated outside the UK, Bupa is a truly international organisation.
Bupa believes that the growth and performance of our leaders and our people is the single biggest pathway to fulfilling our purpose (longer, healthier, happier lives) and delivering Bupa’s 2020 goals. We have a leadership framework called “Bupa Leaders Are” which sets out what great leadership looks like at Bupa. Leaders are called upon to grow themselves, to grow others, to grow the business, to improve the health of the world. We are looking for individuals who are capable of delivering extraordinary business outcomes.
Bupa Global is the worldwide Bupa business. We provide international private medical insurance products and services for globally minded and mobile people who want the most premium coverage and access to the best healthcare anytime, anywhere in the world, whether at home or when studying, living, travelling or working abroad.
