Success story: Justin Bradley
After starting with Commonwealth Bank’s Enterprise Services team as a graduate, Justin now works as a Systems Analyst Developer. His team looks after several IT applications that are used across the group.
On a day-to-day basis, Justin is responsible for meeting with bank customers, managing several IT systems, investigating any problems which arise, and implementing solutions to fix them.
He says that to succeed in his role, it’s important to have an enquiring approach - and always strive to learn more. He also says that teamwork is crucial, as is the ability to translate technical language into non-technical language for customers.
His greatest achievement while at the Bank has been developing an upgrade for one of the Bank’s customer’s system - on time and under budget - and which exceeded the customer’s expectations.
He says: “there’s a lot that goes into running the Group, and the Enterprise Services Graduate Program is a great way to experience this. Being yourself is one of the key factors to the successes I’ve had, as has being ready to ask questions when I need to.”
The Enterprise Services graduate program lasts for 18 months and is a full-time role. You rotate after nine months, so you can learn as much as possible.
When you first join, you will undertake an Enterprise Services Induction and Onboarding Program - which gives you the opportunity to meet other members of your unit, and understand our culture, strategy and key projects.
Along the way, you will receive a dedicated ‘buddy’ a previous graduate - who can provide support and advice. You will also be allocated a mentor, who will help you with your career.
To ensure you grow, you will receive help developing performance and development plans, and access to structured development courses over the 18 months. To help you transition from Graduate to a non-Graduate role after 18 months you are partnered with a Career Coach and attend career focussed workshops to help you identify your strengths.
When you become part of the Enterprise Services team, you will have countless opportunities to expand your knowledge, skills and abilities.
On a day-to-day basis, some of the tasks you may be responsible for include:
Helping design, develop set up, enhance or support technology systems.
Investigating current systems, and determining how they could be improved.
Project-based work, including scoping, planning, implementing and reporting.
Working with stakeholders to ensure all of their individual needs are met.
Testing proposed systems to ensure they are easy to use, and accessible by all.
Helping translate business requirements into IT functionality.
When you choose to work within our Enterprise Services team, you gain access to a whole range of fantastic benefits - including:
Huge career potential. You are securing a permanent position within Australia’s largest bank, in a very dynamic and exciting area.
Diversity. Over the 18-month program, you will rotate positions after nine months - meaning you have the opportunity to experience different areas of the business, first hand.
Generous remuneration - and bonus structure.
Training and development. You will have the opportunity to focus on your career growth, and enjoy great support from senior management. This includes access to paid technical training courses.
Exciting projects. You will be exposed to some very innovative, cutting-edge IT projects - and have the chance to get involved and make a difference.
Chance to pass on your knowledge. Over time, you will have the opportunity to become a ‘buddy’ for future graduates - meaning you can pass on what you know, and demonstrate how far you have come over the course of the program.
An ever-improving program. The Enterprise Services management team is very committed to the success of this program - and is continually working to improve our offering, to provide you with the most exciting and engaging experience possible.
Community involvement. As with all Bank employees, you will have the chance to be involved in several volunteering projects, where you can truly make a difference to local communities.
