Minal

I am a biomedical engineer bridging the gap between data science and commerce

When I tell people I’m the co-author of a neurosurgery textbook and have two articles published in science and neuroscience journals, they’re pretty shocked I work in banking. In my team we use analytics to deliver insights that drive strategic changes, but we’re also involved in protecting our most vulnerable customers from financial risks.

I am an expert in Asia-Pacific studies uncovering insights that shape Australia’s housing market

I’ve always had a passion for Asian culture. It’s what I focused my studies on. Having spent so much time overseas trying new things, when it came to looking for a job, I really wanted a role which would let me experience new things as well. I’d never really considered the impact that global markets can have on our local industry, and once my eyes were opened to this, the thought of working in financial services never slipped away.

I am an aerospace engineer analysing ASX200 companies  

My plan was always for my degree to take me into an engineering firm or the aerospace industry. I guess I landed here by accident. My current role combines financial analysis and stakeholder management. Each month I am allocated different clients from the ASX200, so there’s always something new to learn.

I am an accounting and HR major securing our digital platforms

It’s amazing how quickly plans can change. I had always imagined myself working at a large auditing firm, but now I’m into my second rotation of my 18-month grad program, the first stop was the Digital Protection Group. It feels great knowing that I can bring a fresh perspective and new ideas to any team from my unique study background.
