Our Summer Analyst Program

The global marketplace is as diverse as our client base. As such, we need a range of talent from a broad range of academic backgrounds and experience.

The Global Markets Summer Analyst roles are ideal for students who are passionate about working in the Global Financial Markets. Here you’ll have the opportunity to work across a number of teams to provide core global markets products to a range of institutional and corporate clients serviced by CommBank.

In this 10 week program, starting in early December, you’ll become part of a collaborative and inclusive trading floor and take on meaningful and tangible work. Your day-to-day tasks will vary depending on the area.

  • Trading: You may be pricing foreign exchange products or building interest rate curves
