Employer Profile

Great things happen when you bring different perspectives together. This is why at

CommBank, we’re looking for the best and brightest minds, across every degree.

We know that sometimes your degree isn’t the end of the journey, and that for a lot

of people what you study isn’t necessarily what you end up doing. That’s an unlikely

match.


We are continuously expanding our capabilities, therefore we need to make sure

we are recruiting students with skills across all disciplines to adjust to an ever

changing environment. As Australia’s largest bank, we have a great footprint with

graduates and interns, and are seen as a true employer of choice.


At CommBank, our Graduate and Summer Intern programs are a challenging and

rewarding way to kick-start your career.


What can you expect as a Graduate or Summer Intern?

  • Shine: Contribute from day one by working on real projects that impact our business and our customers, within Australia’s largest bank.

  • Develop: Participate in market-leading training to develop your technical and soft skills. This will help with the transition to full-time work from university and ensure you excel in your immediate and future roles.

  • Network: Build networks and friendships through unparalleled access to senior leaders, project leads and program sponsors, enhancing your personal and business profile.

  • Contribute: Give back to the community through graduate initiatives, driving positive change across our organisation and improving the wellbeing of our graduate cohort.

 

Graduates start with us in February as a permanent employee, but the length of your program can varies based on which Business Area you choose. Being such a large and diverse business, we have a vast range of opportunities for you to take hold of. Throughout your first year we provide loads of support to help you to maximize your experience. You’ll attend orientation in Sydney to 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 in Sydney again for an intensive mid-year development event to enhance your capabilities even further. You’ll complete a rotational program to help you to learn about different parts of your business area. 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 Australia’s best bank. 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.

What do recent graduates say are the best things about working with us?

"The inclusive and supportive culture means that going to work and interacting with colleagues is great every day. The main positive being a Graduate is the ability to explore so many areas of the organisation and receive training on a regular basis."

"Lots of career opportunities. Senior people are so willing to meet with juniors and give you their time. A lot of diversity of work within the division. Generally very good people to work with who are supportive of flexible working."
