Our Programs

  • Graduate Program

    Our Technology Graduate Program focusses on three technical specialities:

    In this Program you’ll have the opportunity to rotate between the technology streams 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 between 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 technology landscape.

    If you aspire to work with strong and energetic teams who are reimaging product and services, leading Australia’s recovery from recent global events, influencing our world-leading digital experiences and technology and effecting social change, this is the stream for you. If you want to leverage and build on your strong Data Science technical knowledge, get exposure to industry leading experts and thought leadership, this is the Program for you.

    Best of all, you don’t have to have it all figured out before joining us.

    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 Graduate Program take you?

    The scale of our business means you’ll be constantly learning and building upon your skillset, working on different business problems, adding further capabilities, tools, platforms and applications to your toolbox.

    Our Data Scientists have incredible knowledge and experience and are open and willing to share information and support others to build strong and energetic teams.

    The possibilities for our technology cohort is ever expanding. You could be helping to develop new products or features in our digital assets, helping us understand our customers and the market, or stopping fraud and financial crime as an Associate Data Scientist. You’ll work on projects involving:

    • Machine Learning
    • Cutting edge AI research
    • Applying advanced techniques to social problems
    • Australia’s #1 Mobile Banking App
    • Digital assets and products

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

    Summer Intern Program

    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 technology 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.
