Work life balance 

Here, you’ll be encouraged to live your best life while you do your best work. We support our people with the flexibility to balance where work is done, with at least half their time each month connecting in one of our office locations. We’re all about achieving the best outcomes for our customers, our teams and you.

Growth & development 

Want to continue that extra study? We offer tertiary study assistance, sponsored access to professional memberships, accreditations and dedicated training programs. Your options to grow are limitless.  


You’ll be rewarded for your contribution here. From benefits like your own personal banking discounts, to gym memberships, restaurants, travel and movie vouchers – we’ve got you covered.  

What can you expect as a Graduate or Summer Intern?  

As a graduate, you’ll start with us in February as a permanent employee, but the length of your program can vary based on your chosen career pathway.  Throughout your first year we provide loads of support to help you to maximise your experience and you’ll enjoy a range of rotations to expose you to new and exciting career possibilities.


You’ll attend orientation in your local office where you’ll hear from senior leaders and renowned speakers, immerse yourself in all things CommBank and network with fellow graduates. We’ll help you identify focus areas and provide tailored development sessions – on demand or in person. Grads come together again for an intensive mid-year development event to enhance your capabilities even further. At the end of your program, you’ll be supported to find a role that best suits your capabilities and interests.​ 


Our 10-week Summer Intern Program gives you a taste of what it’s like to work with us. You’ll be given full support and training to help you decide if CommBank is the right fit for you. At the end of the program you’ll also have the opportunity to apply early for our Graduate Program for the following year.
