About Cyber

Our purpose is simple: create a cyber-secure organisation to keep our people and customers safe, sound and secure for generations to come.

We’re building a courageous, trusting culture and supporting growth at pace. We believe Cyber is everyone’s business and invest in our people and communities to develop global Cyber capabilities.

We’re part of Technology and are responsible for the world-leading applications across every single aspect of CommBank – from innovative product platforms for our customers, to essential tools within our business.

Whatever you’re working on, you’ll be empowered to spark change, transform an industry and deliver what really matters. We’re passionate about what we can do with a truly diverse team.

Our Programs

  • Graduate Program

    Our Technology Graduate Program focusses on three technical specialities:

    In this Program you’ll have the opportunity to rotate between areas of Technology or stay focussed in your area of specialty. 

    You’ll contribute to our technology innovations within industry-leading teams while you’re supported and empowered to navigate and invigorate your career.

    Our flexible 18-month Program gives you the option to rotate across either complementing or widely varying teams. So whether you want to fast track into a specialist role or discipline, broaden your expertise or simply ‘try something on for size’, you'll have the opportunity to tailor the career you want while we support you in navigating our modern tech landscape.

    If you aspire to join our exceptional teams of Cyber Security professionals who protect and educate our customers, are motivated to work with stakeholders across the business and ready to take on a new challenge, then this is the stream for you.

    You only need to apply for the one Program, with an indication of which stream you’d like to start in. Once you start, we’ll work with you to tailor the Program to you.

  • Where could the Program take you?

    The possibilities for our tech cohort is ever-expanding. For Cyber this includes:

    • Penetration Testing
    • Cyber Intel

    • Security Architect
    • Cyber Intel Associate

    Roles available for Cyber are based in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide.

    During our 10-week Summer Intern Program you’ll receive training and networking opportunities, be supported by a buddy and get the chance to hone your skills in engineering (software, security, data or machine learning), native mobile, architecture, infrastructure, cloud, data science or cyber.

    Given the breadth and diversity of our tech makeup, we support you to identify a team that suits your existing capability and study interests, while providing meaningful challenges and exposure across our tech platforms.

What we look for

Our diverse teams look for many different qualities in Graduates. You’re dedicated to creating a better experience for our customers, and also passionate about technology, the simplification of processes and organisational change.

You’re an innate problem-solver and curious about the world around you. We believe in using the right tool for the job, so an open mind to learn new tech stacks, languages and frameworks will go a long way.


We’re open to degrees across disciplines. Most of our Cyber Graduates have completed a degree in one or a blend of the following:

  • Computer Science
  • Software Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Information Systems
  • Information Technology

If you have an underlying passion for Cyber and appetite to work in a highly complex and fast-changing business, we have many career pathways open to you.

    • Grad-led engagement: You’ll be enabled and empowered to lead engagement across the Graduate cohort. You may choose to take on a leadership role in the committee, edit the monthly newsletter, ideate and deliver a grad event – or simply participate. We partner with you to drive engagement, give a voice to grads and collaborate on the Program.
    • Innovation: Immerse yourself in cybersecurity, quantum cryptography, work on Greenfield projects or any number of our technology innovations. Tap into your creative potential and set free your inner entrepreneur.
    • Mentorship and buddies: You’ll be connected with a buddy from the Grad alumni and a mentor in your field in your first year, with optional additional mentoring available to support further career growth.
    • Support: You’ll be supported by the teams you work in, talent focussed line managers, the Program team and all the way through to senior management to enable you to confidently contribute while you’re learning.
