Summer intern program - 10 weeks

Our Summer Intern Program

This 10 week program gives you exposure across our diverse business. You’ll receive training, networking opportunities, be supported by a buddy and have the chance to contribute meaningfully to our business. 

During this structured Program you’ll rotate around key areas of the bank, including sales, risk, product, global markets and branches, whilst being based in a regional centre for the majority of your rotations so that you gain a genuine insight into our customer base. You’ll have the opportunity to build relationships with customers face-to-face to consolidate your personal, business and leadership skills.  You will also have the opportunity to rotate through the other areas which fall under the broader Business & Private Banking program, including CommSec and Business, Corporate & Private Banking.  Some rotations may also include state-based travel.

Potential roles within Regional and Agribusiness Banking during and after the Program include:

  • Relationship Analyst
  • Relationship Manager
  • Regional and Executive Manager.

You’ll also have the potential to progress through to Executive and General Manager roles throughout your career.
