Great things happen when you bring different perspectives together. This is why at CommBank, we’re looking for the best and brightest minds, across every degree. We know that sometimes your degree isn’t the end of the journey, and that for a lot of people what you study isn’t necessarily what you end up doing. That’s an unlikely match.
With over 16 business areas to choose from, CommBank offers a vibrant, innovative environment to start your career. Get to know some of our unlikely matches below and discover what life is like as a CommBank graduate.
I am a Biomedical Engineer delivering transformative changes to our Business Banking customers.
I never thought I’d end up working at a bank. But once I started to think about what I love most about engineering – process improvement, project management, critical thinking and problem solving – I realised working at CommBank was the perfect match. I get to be a part of fixing, running and transforming our business to better improve our customer experience.
I am a Law and Linguistics Major dedicated to changing one community at a time.
As a proud Gumbaynggirr and Gunditjmara man growing up in south-western Sydney, I was one of the first in my family to go to university. Given the opportunity to study overseas, I was able to learn the nuances of culture and language with a business lens on a global scale. With a deep understanding of community from my international experience as well as through my Indigenous heritage, I wanted to invest my skills on home soil. That's why I chose to work at CommBank, because we’re a true representation of Australia and have the ability to change the financial wellbeing of our communities through the great work we do every day.
I am a Marketing Major creating exceptional digital products for our clients.
I studied a range of subjects in university and hopped around a lot, from start-ups to global companies, finance to media. I didn’t see myself in a particular role, but I've found CommBank has it all. It's a playground for ideas that will shape the future of banking for all Australians, and I get to be part of it.
I am a Computer Science Major working on future-proofing our business.
I never expected I would apply my high school chemistry knowledge in a banking environment, especially after studying computer science. Or to work in a team that’s responsible for ensuring Australians can rely on our payment networks for shouting their mates a coffee. The opportunities I’ve had to work with people from various professional backgrounds have been endless, as have the opportunities to create a positive impact on our communities. Who knows where my career will take me?
I am a Business Graduate delivering best-in-class digital experiences for our customers.
I always saw myself going into the corporate world, studying marketing and finance. However, I didn’t realise how technology-focused I would be at a bank. Fast-forward two years, and I've had the opportunity to rotate through various teams within Digital, working on everything from features for the CommBank app all the way to conducting research to guide the strategic direction of the Digital team.
I am a Physics and Oceanography PhD solving tech problems and engineering solutions.
From ocean physics, to data science, to software engineering – I never thought a PhD in oceanography would lead me to solving problems within technology at a bank, but I’m glad it has. Since joining CommBank, I’ve been able to help develop machine learning models and analyse complex datasets to deliver valuable insights related to financial crime. Most of the time it feels like I’m working in a fully fledged technology company rather than a financial institution. You get the freedom to explore, experiment and be inventive.
