Flexible working  

  • As we build tomorrow’s bank today, we’ll continue to experiment with new patterns of work that balance the needs our customers, teams and people.  

  • Reimagined ways of working

    Many of our teams have adopted hybrid working, where we complement coming into the workplace with working remotely. When the balance is right, we leverage the best of independent, focused time with in-person collaboration and connection.

    We support our people with the flexibility to balance where work is done with at least half their time each month connecting in office. We also have many other flexible working options available including changing start and finish times, part-time arrangements and job share to name a few. Talk to us about how these arrangements might work in the role you’re interested in.

    Check out some of our locations our people can work from.


  • Adjust your working hours 

    Working 9-5, five days a week doesn't work for everyone. Many of our roles provide the flexibility to adjust your start and finish times or to work fewer hours than a standard full-time job, while providing all the perks of a (pro-rata) full-time role.  Examples of these include working a shorter fortnight, working part-time or job-sharing.

    Even if a role doesn’t specify part-time or job-share, we always encourage you to ask whether it’s available. 

  • Extra leave options

    Want to spend school holidays with your kids? Planning a week-long hike? Over and above annual leave, sick leave and long service leave, we offer further leave options to eligible employees. These include parental leave, additional purchased annual leave (up to 4 weeks), career breaks, carers leave, Sorry Business leave, pet leave, gender affirmation leave, family planning leave, community service leave, study leave, compassionate leave and unpaid leave. We even offer up to 5 days of life leave a year as an incentive for our people to recharge and use their annual leave allowance within the year it’s allocated.

Financial wellbeing

  • Competitive pay & banking benefits

    We look after our people with competitive salaries, superannuation, salary packaging and performance incentive options. 

    Our Employee Banking Team is your VIP support when it comes to investment and insurance options and services. You’ll also be able to enjoy a range of competitive discounts on accounts, credit cards, personal and home loans, insurance, financial planning and much more.

Max’s story

“Do you want see a picture of him? That’s probably the sentence I’ve said more than any other in the last four months. Fatherhood has felt like some privileged 'club' that I've joined, and with every day that goes by, and every little change that occurs I get more grateful for my wife and son. His smile is the best part of my day.

An unexpected aspect of becoming a Father has been connecting with my parents on their memories of my childhood and building a deeper appreciation for everything that they did for me. Parental Leave has also changed so much since their generation and there's a lot I get to do as a Dad that is different to what was available to my parents.

Having carers leave in those first four weeks to support my newborn and wife was incredible. And the opportunity to take over as Primary Carer in a couple of months’ time is something I can’t wait for. I’m grateful to work in a business which is supportive of my choice to start a family.”
