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 which Career Pathway you choose. Throughout your first year we provide loads of support to help you to maximize your experience. Including a range of rotations to help you learn about different parts of your selected career path.    


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. 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.
