We actively encourage and help our staff to volunteer their time and expertise to work with community groups, registered Australian charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Skilled volunteering and secondments
Our large, diverse organisation has a range of skills that we can donate to help charity, community groups and social enterprises achieve their goals.
Our staff have the opportunity to volunteer their expertise through skilled and secondment programs.
We are a member company with Jawun, a leading non-profit organisation that brings together corporate Australia and Indigenous social enterprises. Through Jawun, Commonwealth Bank staff complete secondments to help build skills in Indigenous Australian enterprises.
Mentoring and professional development
We work closely with the Australian Business and Community Network and the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation with their primary school and high school student mentoring programs. We offer support ranging from providing literacy in primary school to helping high school students make career choices. Watch some of people volunteering at Bourke St Primary School.
Team volunteering days
The Group regularly arranges team days for our people work together to support a list of various charitable groups and non-profit organisations. These volunteer activities range from producing meals for those in need through Cooking for a Cause with OzHarvest, vegetation projects with Conservation Volunteers Australia or working with clients of the Cerebral Palsy Alliance.
