“We are thrilled to welcome such a talented and diverse group of graduates to our technology team. Our program offers valuable opportunities to advance their careers, work with some of Australia’s top tech leaders and contribute to our strategy of building tomorrow’s bank today for our customers.
“We are collaborating with, and investing in, local tech communities to address the critical skills shortage in technology and maintain our country’s competitiveness. A critical part of this is supporting the next generation of tech-skilled professionals and building a world-class engineering team at CBA that is obsessed over the customer,” said Ms Adams.
Meet our technology grads
CBA’s technology graduate program has a proven track record of success and is part of a cluster of early in career programs that help us meet future technologists from a number of diverse pathways.
Many graduates have been able to stay in their hometowns close to family and friends, while making meaningful contributions in the industry. Michael Bleakley is based in Perth and after moving through CBA’s early careers program, he is now a Systems Engineer at CBA. Sanjeda Raheem is a 2022 technology graduate based in Melbourne, and has been joined by almost 60 new Melbourne technology graduates in 2023.
Sanjeda Raheem said: “Through the grad program and my different rotations, it’s been great to work on many varied and challenging projects while developing my technical skills. I have been able to gain practical experience in a supportive environment, and the mentoring and training I’m getting is helping me grow both personally and professionally. I feel grads have fresh perspectives, especially coming from a software adjacent background, and the team here really values that.”

Note to Editors
- CBA understands not all early careers start with a university degree, or at the end of university. CBA Technology invests in multiple programs to kick-start brighter careers. These include an Indigenous Academy (offering opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples), Technology Associates (a flexible program that gives participants part or full-time exposure to working in Technology while studying or entering the industry), university partnerships (for work integrated learning programs and co-op sponsored degrees), a 10 week summer intern experience and the graduate program.
