Risk Management Graduate and Summer Intern Programs

Risk Management Program overview

Our customers expect us to be there for them when it matters, and they expect us to do the right thing at all times. Our role in Risk Management is to continually improve the way we manage risk to deliver better risk and customer outcomes. We support the Group with strategies and frameworks to assess, report on and manage risks.

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.

As part of our 18 month program, our tailored experience has a 3 rotation structure which allows you to experience the full spectrum of what Risk Management does across the Group. Through the rotations, you will have an opportunity to design, review or develop risk policies, principle standards, methodologies and measurements to ensure the management of risks is within the agreed risk parameters.

You will have an opportunity to work across a range of specialised Risk divisions such as:

  • Business & Private Banking Risk
  • Institutional Banking & Markets Risk
  • Retail Banking Services Risk
  • Enterprise Services Risk
  • Compliance
  • Group Credit Risk
  • Operational Risk
  • Portfolio & Market Risk Management
  • Risk Strategy & Optimisation.

The opportunities are endless and the work provided is varied and different.

The specific Portfolio & Market Risk Management (PMRM) stream on the Risk graduate program is an exciting opportunity to launch your career as a quantitative risk professional. Gaining broad experience during three rotations within the team, you’ll get the chance to develop credit and market risk models and perform advanced analytics to provide key risk and business insights.

Some of the exciting projects previous graduates worked on include:

  • Developing Probability of Default, Loss Given Default, or Exposure at Default estimates for credit portfolios, for use in capital calculation, loan originations or business decision making
  • Developing and testing pricing models, statistical behavioural models, historical value a risk models and Monte Carlo simulation models for use in measuring market risk in the trade book, interest rate risk in the banking book and derivative counterparty credit risk.

By the end of the program you will have gained a solid foundation in risk modelling, and first-hand experience in developing advanced risk models in collaboration with business stakeholders.

After completing the Graduate Program, you could move into the following roles

  • Compliance Analyst
  • Risk Associate
  • Risk Executive
  • Quantitative Analyst

Many of our past graduates have moved into senior manager roles in Australia and overseas.
