“Starting at CommBank as a recruiter almost 10 years ago, I never thought I’d now be leading the design of technology and process for one of the country’s biggest Talent Acquisition functions. Career progression is endless here, and it’s one of the reasons why I’ve hung around for so long. When I was a recruiter, I was part of the Technology and Diversity champions group, developing my capabilities across both these areas. Although I’ve always had a keen interest in process improvement and technology, it’s this opportunity that gave me that push to pursue a career in the tech and process world. It’s quite rare to find a TA function with such a wide variety of career opportunities – whether it’s leadership, tech, risk or marketing – Talent Acquisition at CommBank has it all!”

“I’ve always worked in recruitment. But it wasn’t until I moved into the world of Employer Brand whilst living in Dubai that I discovered my passion. When I relocated to Australia, I needed to secure a job and CommBank had an opening for a three month contract as a recruiter. Although I had another offer of permanent employment elsewhere, I had a really good feeling about the culture and I thought it was a place where I could steer my career in the direction I wanted. I knew about the Employer Brand (EB) team and hoped I’d have the opportunity to transition in the future. I took the risk, and accepted the three month contract. Fast forward two years, I’m now part of the EB team and love it. I get to meet great people across the company and tell their story. I’m able to leverage the experience I gained as a recruiter while being challenged to learn new skills in marketing.”

“I’m pretty bias when I say Talent Acquisition at CommBank is the best team I’ve ever been a part of. Working in the function for 11 and a half years, I’ve built some great connections and have had some fantastic exposure to many areas. As any recruiter will tell you, there’s never a dull moment, however the supportive, collaborative, and caring culture of the team is something that I really value.

During my time here, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some outstanding leaders who have challenged me, supported me and most importantly believed in me. I’ve recruited for our frontline branch & contact centre teams, lending, product, insurance, business banking, risk and digital teams – just to name a few! I’ve also been lucky enough to work on interesting projects that have driven significant improvements to our candidate experience. I’ve also had the opportunity to lead some high performing teams, each of which have taught me how to be a better leader. I’m now a Talent Acquisition Manager, Strategy where I predominately partner with the business to support their recruitment demand and forecasting.

TA at CommBank is a place where you’ll be heard, challenged and enabled to achieve your best in your own way. Don’t be afraid to put your hand up for new opportunities. And keep our candidates at the centre of everything that you do. Do this, and you’ll experience a long, happy, successful career with us.” 

Michael - Talent Acquisition Manager Strategy 

“My 15 year career at CommBank has always involved connecting people with career opportunities in one way or another. From looking after Career Transitions, to Inclusion & Diversity within Talent Acquisition and now managing the Reskilling Program, I’ve been able to drive better career outcomes for so many people. I love the culture of testing and learning here. I have a safe space to work where mistakes are taken as learning opportunities. And there’s an openness for being curious, to improve and strengthen everything we do. Anyone looking for a culture of excellence and progression will find that in TA.”
