Life at ANZ

ANZ


First, a bit about ANZ… But not the usual corporate spiel

Yes, we’re a bank.

And yes, we’re more than 180 years young.

But… We try to do things differently for our customers, community and people.

It’s not just a lick of paint we’ve applied - we are driven daily by our purpose to create a balanced and sustainable society in which everyone can take part and build a better life.

Our purpose not only underpins our business strategy, it guides the decisions and actions we take every day as we serve individuals, families, businesses and communities.

ANZ

What else can you expect at ANZ?

  • Be part of change. Using our Human Centred Design approach, we’re committed to delivering products and services that have a meaningful, long lasting impact on our customers.
  • You do you. We used to call this work/life balance, but really, it’s just about working flexibly to compliment your lifestyle. Whether that’s working from home, flexible hours or working part time – we make it work.
  • Wellbeing comes first. Your physical and mental wellbeing are our priority, so if that means leaving work early to make soccer training or a Pilates class, do it. Unless you prefer to have a hit of tennis at work, you can do that too.
  • Out with the old, in with the new. We got rid of hierarchy and introduced a new, agile way of working. Our leaders are approachable, inspired and ready to drive positive change.
  • ANZ
  • Always be learning. Through a structured program we want to bring you up to speed quickly so we can get you involved in cool projects straight away!
  • Career development and progression paths. We have specific informal & formal programs, tools & support that can help you learn, grow, be bigger and better.
  • Workplace Equality and Inclusiveness, in every sense of the word.
  • Dress for Your Day. No need for a suit and tie needed, we trust you to dress appropriately for what you have on each day.
  • Access to loads of benefits. All staff get discounted rates for ANZ products, insurance, and we even have a gift shop on-site if you forget to buy your mum a present for her birthday.

What do you do for the community?

Glad you asked. We know we play an important role in society, and we don’t take that lightly. All staff are entitled to volunteer leave, and are encouraged to get out and contribute where they can. We also match all employee charitable donations dollar for dollar. Most recently, we matched $144K in employee donations to help people who have recently been affected by the bushfires; an event that has personally impacted many of our employees.

Our Graduate Program

ANZ


Our Graduate Program is designed to take your career to the next level.

We’re searching for Graduates who love workshopping ideas, are keen to embrace and explore innovation, and have an exceptional taste in music (the last bit is optional...) We want people who aren’t afraid to speak up, share their opinions, develop relationships and influence outcomes.

Our focus is on your values and capability - you are more than a university mark or previous experience. We’re looking for students who are passionate about what they do and how they do it. Our CEO, Shayne Elliot says:

“Work for people who teach you things;

Attitude is just as important as aptitude;

Be adaptive; and

Be authentic”

ANZ

Take a leap in the right direction

We have five Graduate programs available across our Australia Retail and Commercial business, Institutional, Technology, Agribusiness and Finance divisions.

Most of our Graduates Programs are advertised in February each year, and our Summer Internships Programs are recruited in July.

This year though, we have an opportunity for 2021 Graduates to join our Australia Business Transformation (Technology) team in Melbourne.

The Australia Business Transformation team is focused on the future of banking. This is where banking is done differently. We get to work with innovative and new technologies allowing us to provide elegant solutions to meet our customers’ needs now and in the future.

Are you looking for an opportunity to be part of this change - working in an agile way to innovate and deliver quality outcomes at pace? We’re looking for people who are passionate about transformational change and doing great things for our customers, to help us redefine banking for the future. Join us as we reimagine services using the latest platforms and technology, to better support our customers’ financial wellbeing.

For more information on Australia Business Transformation, please refer to the below link.

ANZ

Who can apply?

We have had graduates join our program from all kinds of academic streams. We are focused on diversity of thinking as it is critical to our success, so we encourage students from all degree disciplines to apply for our program.
Your university grades aren’t our focus because we know you’re more than a GPA/WAM. We also want to know about your passions, your creative thinking and comfort in adapting to new people and situations.

  • interested in a permanent role with ANZ starting in February 2021;
  • a citizen of, or hold permanent residency in, Australia or New Zealand;
  • in your final year of university studies (bachelor degree or higher); or
  • you have graduated in the last three years.

What’s next?

We want to get to know you for who you really are, and don’t believe that we can assess that by reading a resume or LinkedIn profile. This means that there’s no need to send us a copy of your resume, or even a cover letter.
We have simplified our recruitment process to be to give you the opportunity to show your best self.

Our Application Process:

  • Online Application Form (it’s really short we promise)
  • Game based Assessment (16 games that take about 30 minutes in total)

What your day might look like as a Graduate within our Australia Retail & Commercial business…

Jordan

Jordan Russo – Australia Retail & Commercial Graduate

I always start my day with a waterfront walk to clear my mind and prepare myself for my upcoming day. I sit down at my desk around 9, check my emails, say hello to my team and go downstairs together to grab a fresh orange juice.

First line of order is to do a team stand up where we discuss what work we have on for the day, and bring up any blockers to work through as a team. I log into Adobe Analytics to knock out some of my data investigation from the latest app launch. Our customers are loving our new goals feature, and it’s tracking really well for the delivery squad. I’m putting together a dynamic view to present my findings at a showcase, so that the rest of the tribe can be up to date with our amazing results.

It’s a sunny day out, so I grab a salad and head to the grassy hill to enjoy lunch with a few of my friends. Afterwards, I have a meeting with the Home Lending Department about an upcoming feature they want to release in the app. We collaborate on the possible look and feel, and any risk and assurance items. We will need to meet regularly throughout the upcoming months as we draw closer to release. After completing a few more data requests, I update my agile board to reflect what work is now complete, and scan my eye over what’s on my agenda for tomorrow.


Basma

Basma Firas – Australia Retail & Commercial Graduate

I love to start my day early at 8am where I begin by checking emails and updating my ‘to do list’ for the day. Being in a customer facing role, I have a lot of tight deadlines to deliver excellent customer service, so I find that a ‘to do list’ is really helpful. Once this is complete, my team grab our coats to go on a walk and buy our morning coffee.

I start working through my list of tasks which likely includes responding to customer queries over the phone and speaking with our internal stakeholders such as asset and trade finance. Looking through our portfolio, we have just received the quarter 4 financials from one of our customers. I’ll make a start on analysing the trends from the previous period to track how their business is going and document their credit risk position.

It would be great to attend a customer meeting with this customer in the upcoming weeks prior to their annual review, which is my favourite part of being in banking. I love to hear our customers talk about their businesses and give us a tour of their facilities. This allows us to build a valuable relationship so that we can best meet their needs and assist their business to grow. I’ll mention this to my manager so that we can schedule the meeting ahead of our annual review deadline, which will give us time to discuss any changes to the their banking products.

My team and I love to go for a walk around the block during lunch. We share some laughs and get fresh air. It allows us to come back to the office with a clear mind to continue our work. Today, I have a workshop where our credit and relationship managers discuss a client with our risk team. The purpose of this meeting is to talk through anything we need to consider before we can submit their commercial loan application for approval.

After the call, I continue working through my list until home time. Time flies in frontline roles. It’s always “on the go” because we are responding to customers’ needs. It’s rewarding meeting customer expectations.

Before I know it, I’m saying goodbye, I might hit the pool today to train for my upcoming triathlon.

Here’s the low down

The Australia Retail & Commercial division at ANZ is ANZ’s largest business, made up of approximately 16,000 employees serving some six million retail and commercial customers through a network of branches, business centres, ATMs and leading digital banking applications.

Our priorities are remediation and learning from the things we got wrong in the past, building momentum with a renewed focus on Home Owners and Business Owners, and transforming our Australia business so it’s relevant for our customers in the future. This involves improving our technology and reinventing our customer and employee experience through simpler, automated services and improved platforms.

As an Australia Retail & Commercial division Graduate, the sky is the limit with an extensive range of opportunities from banking, market research and insights, or data analytics and product development. With so many options, you will get to experience a variety of roles that will utilise your capabilities and push you out of your comfort zone.

You don’t need a banking or finance background to join Australia Retail & Commercial – we are all constantly collaborating on exciting projects, so we need people who can work well in a team, are strong communicators, enjoy putting forward ideas and can deliver at pace.

What’s involved?

You will complete three rotations as a part of your graduate program, and each rotation runs for six months to ensure you get the most out of your time in that area. For your second and third rotation, you can preference a role to explore areas that peak your curiosity.

The program begins with induction week, this is where you will meet your fellow graduates, the graduate team and leaders from all parts of the business. The induction will go over ANZ’s values, as well as different skill sessions such as leadership, the agile approach and human centred design to get you ready for your first rotation.

Along the way, you will have development days to further enhance your technical and interpersonal skills, with tailored mentoring sessions and networking opportunities.

Expect to face challenges, make mistakes, and keep an open mind to continuous learning and personal improvement. Know that you will never be in it alone as there is always ongoing support from a buddy, mentors, coaches, leaders and the graduate team to help you set and achieve your career goals.

Here are some areas you might work in:

Banking

We work with a range of customers from start-ups to large complex trading companies that span across many industries such as retail and manufacturing. One day you might be conducting industry analysis, and the next you could be on the road with your relationship manager visiting a prospective customer.

Digital

Our customers are at the heart of everything we do at ANZ, and we want your fresh ideas on how we can make their experiences better. Our digital channels are growing fast, with rotations available within areas such as the ANZ App and internet banking.

You can work on customer research and insights for upcoming features, or learn data analytics to inform strategic decisions. The digital space also has opportunities to explore risk and assurance as well as working within the customer adoption space on marketing campaigns and events.

Product

We know banking can be complicated, so our product teams are working hard to simplify our offering to better suit our customers’ needs. You can complete a rotation across product areas targeting home owners, business owners and retail customers. Working in an agile methodology, you will showcase your innovative ideas and problem solving techniques to existing products, and new product development.

Remediation

The banking industry is highly regulated to ensure the protection of our customers. At ANZ, we take pride in accountability if things go wrong, and work fast to fix issues when they arise. Completing a rotation in this area will enable you to learn more about the overall banking environment and government policies. You will work on projects that ensure our customers banking experience is smooth and secure.

Enough about us. What about you?

  • Are you someone who asks ‘why’ a lot? We love curious people challenging status quo.
  • Do you think differently about things? Variety of views allow us to come up with best solutions.
  • Do you love new experiences, challenging yourself, and having fun? Our graduates are passionate about meeting our customers’ needs through creative ideas and deep analysis, whilst also building relationships in and outside of the bank.
  • Do you love working in a team? We take a lot of pride in our work and values, so we look for people who display collaboration, respect, and agility, as well as the ability to flourish within a team.
  • Do you get frustrated by blockers? We do to. We are looking for people who love working at a fast pace in a rapidly transforming business environment.
  • Most importantly, you’re passionate about our customer experience. We all come from a diverse range of backgrounds, but this is what helps us to provide the best experience for our customers.

Are you in? What’s next?

We want to get to know you for who you really are, and don’t believe that we can assess that by reducing your experiences to a page. This means that there’s no need to send us a copy of your resume, or even your cover letter!

Instead, we invite you to take part in a series of games which assess a range of cognitive abilities. That’s it.

If you move to the next stage we’ll invite you to do a Personality Questionnaire. There are no right or wrong answers, we just want to learn more about how you prefer to work.

From here, you’ll be invited to do a digital interview (meaning you can interview from the comfort of home), where you record your answers to prompts in a series of short videos. Finally, we’d love to meet you in-person in our office where we have an assessment centre that includes an interview and role play.

This could be the perfect opportunity for you to take your career to the next level. Apply today and give it a go.

What your day might look like as a Technology Graduate…

Jack

Jack Zheng – Technology Graduate

It’s Monday morning, and you cruise into work at 8am in comfy jeans, new sneakers, and give your co-worker’s dog a pat on the way to your desk. You open your calendar to check what’s on for the day whilst taking a sip of your soy latte that you grabbed from your cool cafe across from work.

You make an audible sigh of relief when you see that you have a showcase in the afternoon, and you can get some meaty work done today. You open up Slack and Github, checking over a few pull requests you opened the previous day. You love getting in to work early because it gives you an extra hour to get a head start on the day. (Beating the 5pm rush hour for leaving work also doesn’t hurt.)

The next few hours’ fly by as you code away using your favourite code editor, Visual Studio Code, on your MacBook Pro. Lunch comes around quickly and you join a few of your teammates for lunch in the kitchen. The showcase in the afternoon goes great, with the demo working fine, and the audience was super impressed by the speed in which your team has been building features. You also got some great feedback which will help with the next iteration of your project.

Another great day on the Technology Graduate Program.

Want to put yourself in this picture?

The Technology Division at ANZ builds, procures and operates systems that enable ANZ to deliver banking services to over 6 million customers in Australia and process billions of dollars every day. We have 5,000 employees across the world who work in ANZ Technology, all working on different pieces of the puzzle, providing delightful financial experiences that are safe, secure, and simple to use. Our aim is to deliver [email protected]

It's not an easy task, and certainly comes with some challenges. Whether it's helping us enable lightning fast payments or ensuring the stability of our online banking platform, there’s always something to do.

What’s involved?

As a Tech Grad, you’ll be rotating through 3 roles in different areas of Technology. We’ve got a lot of different teams under our Technology division, with a range of different positions available for Grads to get involved in. This will let you explore a wide range of roles and departments at ANZ.

We’ll be supporting your rotations with a mix of skills development, regular one-on-one coffee catch-ups and plenty of pizza nights with other graduates. The Tech leaders tend to come to these nights too, so it’s great to get their insights.

You’ll get to work on a graduate project in your first rotation which lets you take ownership of a piece of work alongside other talented graduates. You’ll be supported by a project sponsor and a project coach but it’ll be your team’s project to deliver, or fail to deliver with. And that’s okay too, because we celebrate learning from failures.

Don’t worry, if it all sounds a bit scary. Being uncomfortable allows you to grow, and you have the full support of everyone around you. You don’t have to know everything and have all the answers, we’re all one big team looking at how we can solve some pretty tricky problems.

Here are some areas you might work in:

Cloud Services

Learn the latest cloud technologies like Kubernetes, Istio and serverless on platforms such as Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services and Azure. We just created a totally new area dedicated to it, with a plan to move the majority of our platforms there in the coming years. See for yourself how cloud is done safely, securely and at scale.

Technology Operations

See how we keep the critical systems in our bank up and running around the clock? In a rotation in operations, you’ll learn how we use monitoring and alerting tools to manage incidents and upgrade systems. Test yourself in constantly changing conditions, build resilience and develop communication skills in high stake situations, as you will often have to work with various teams across ANZ.

Customer Experience

Want to design and build amazing experiences for iOS, Android or the web browser? Come and see how we deliver pixel perfect experiences to our customers whilst making sure our designs are accessible, brand compliant and user-friendly.

And a whole lot more – including working across our platforms to deliver automation and data analytics, supporting the enterprise by delivering great employee experience, business management and infrastructure as a service.

You’ll get exposure to

  • Cloud (GCP, AWS, Azure)
  • Kubernetes
  • Microservices
  • User Experience Design
  • Machine Learning
  • Biometrics
  • Blockchain
  • React, Node.js
  • Chaos Engineering (Simian Army, Chaos Monkey)
  • Business and financial management tools ….and many, many more.

Enough about us. What about you?

  • Are you someone who asks why a lot? We love curious people challenging status quo.
  • Do you think differently about things? Diversity of thought allows us to come up with the best solutions.
  • Are you a geek? You will love to see how cool tools are used in corporate world.
  • Are you NOT a geek? We need you too. Technology is changing so fast and we need people with communication and soft skills to translate that gibberish.
  • Do you like building cutting edge software? ANZ teams encourage, challenge and collaborate in delivering new experiences to our customers.
  • Are you a fun, positive meme-lover? Apply now.

We’re looking to hire problems solvers who have a big picture view.

Are you in?

We want to get to know you for who you really are, and don’t believe that we can assess that by simply reading your resume or LinkedIn profile.

What your day might look like as an Institutional Graduate…

Nicola

Nicola Hailey – Institutional Graduate

It’s a crisp morning in the Docklands as you strut down Collins Street; coffee in hand (in a free ANZ Keep Cup), and Airpods in as you listen to your favourite true-crime podcast. As you wait at the lights, you spot a fellow Grad and chat about the day you both have in store. They tell you they are off to a credit workshop this morning (they’re particularly excited to enjoy some free scones during the morning tea break), followed by a coffee with their Segment Head.

You arrive at your desk and check your calendar. First up is your fortnightly interstate pipeline meeting with your team, followed by a customer meeting at their head-office. Yesterday, you finalised a pack for this customer, walking them through a user case for the New Payments Platform and some data insights. Your job at this meeting is to help bring these concepts to life and explore any other opportunities to improve their banking experience. The meeting goes well, and your customer is keen for a further workshop with our Product Specialists.

As you and your Line Manager take the tram back down to head office, you arrange to meet some of the Grads in the kitchen which overlooks the Yarra River for lunch. Your afternoon flies by in a flurry of emails, workshops and conference calls. Ending the day is a Grad Speaker Series presentation from the Sustainable Finance team. There you discuss the bank’s new initiatives and what a rotation might look like in their team.

It’s now 5.30, and a quick peak at tomorrow’s schedule reveals another jam-packed day. You’re meeting a friend in the city for dinner at 6, so it’s time to log off and head out.

Want to know more?

The Institutional Division at ANZ provides world-class solutions for our large, Institutional and Corporate clients across Australia, New Zealand, Europe and America and the wider Asia-Pacific Region. Our expertise covers Transaction Banking, Markets, Wholesale Digital and Loans & Specialised Finance.

As an Institutional Graduate, you will gain exposure to teams that represent both core and specialised offerings for the Bank’s biggest customers, including airlines, property developers, and multinationals. Most importantly, you are provided with the opportunity to learn from highly experienced professionals from a cross-section of the community, and provide your own perspective and insight into the ever-evolving world of banking and finance.  

What’s involved?

As an Institutional Grad, you are in for a phenomenal 18-month program; consisting of three rotations across different areas of the Institutional bank, where you may explore the division based on your own interests, skills, and developmental goals. You’ll learn the ropes, the lingo (including a plethora of acronyms), and, of course, the best lunch spots in and around the office where you can take a well-deserved break.

Following your induction into the Graduate program, you will be supported in developing core capabilities, which may include a combination of: Research & Analysis, Client Insights, Relationship Management, Data & Digital and our Product areas. While these areas contain a mixture of customer-facing and internal roles, the focus on our core mission in clear; to help shape a world where people and communities thrive.

Key focus areas include:

  • Building strong, collaborative relationships with both internal and external stakeholders to transform great ideas and insights into reality;
  • Balancing customer requirements and the bank’s risk appetite from a lending and capital management perspective;
  • Delivering a consistent and efficient credit process to help customers achieve their objectives;
  • Developing proficient core banking skills and to set the foundation for a successful banking career;

Agribusiness Stream

ANZ


What your day might look like as an Agribusiness Graduate…

Ella

Ella Kearsley - Agribusiness Graduate

The work week begins as I pull up to the local ANZ branch, say “g’day” to the retail team, and head out the back to sit down with the business banking crew and go through the week ahead. Between coffee orders, weekend chatter and ribbing about the local footy results, tasks are allocated to the Relationship Manager, Assistant Manager & myself.

The morning flies by, a flurry of account monitoring, liaising with remote teams, preparing documents for upcoming meetings and responding to emails. Lunchtime comes around and I grab a bite to eat on the way to a farm visit - my favourite part of the job.

We drive past prime agricultural land home to beef, dairy, flower & veggie growing and cropping operations. We reach our destination, greeted by a farmer who is the proud new owner of a 5 span pivot. Equipment Finance documents signed, a typical paddock meeting follows - weather, milk price & production. Then it’s back in the car - checking emails when service allows, discussing lending on the go, or my upcoming trip to the big smoke for a grad event.

Back in front of the computer, I’m sending settlement instructions, requesting financials from accountants and confirming RSVP’s to upcoming field days. A quick tweet bragging about my office (farm) views for the day, a bit of knockoff office banter and it’s another day done as an ANZ Agri Grad.

Want to know more?

The Agribusiness team at ANZ has been supporting the financial needs of regional and rural customers for more than 150 years. Having this deep history with our customers helps us to genuinely understand their businesses – helping them seize opportunities and celebrate success, whilst also supporting them through the tough times when impacted by our changing climate. We are whole heartedly aware that our Agribusiness customers need our support more than ever, and ANZ is committed to being the leading bank in regional and rural Australia by sustaining rural communities now and in the years ahead.

What’s involved?

As an Agri Grad, you’ll be rotating through three different regions within Agribusiness. The first rotation is usually closer to home, then the following two will be in different states so you get to experience different customers and environments. When you first start, you probably won’t know much about banking …and that’s ok. You will buddy up with a Relationship Manager and Assistant Manager who will bring you up to speed, and you’ll also have regular training with the other Agri grads – either in Melbourne, or a regional hub.

You’ll be heading out to farms on a weekly basis, working to understand how you can help your clients grow and gain further value from their business. This could include developing and offering working capital solutions for day to day farming operations, assisting clients make a farm purchase and expand, offering specialist interest rate risk management advice, and assisting purchasing equipment. The options are endless.

Here are some of the things you’ll be doing:

Managing Clients

Getting out of the office, meeting our clients face to face. You might be introducing yourself to a brand new client, or continuing the relationship with clients who have been with ANZ their whole life. You will be working to understand their business and highlighting opportunities, whilst also analysing and mitigating key risks.

Connecting The Dots

Whilst you might be working remotely, you are constantly connected to our internal teams. You will work together to ensure all questions are covered, details are checked, advice is correct, and make sure your customer is fully supported.

Analysing Client Positions

You will complete annual reviews for your customers, reporting on all things financial, production and industry for the past 12 months. It’s effectively a financial health check for your clients, ensuring everything is ticking along okay, and their banking needs are being met.

Enough about us. What about you?

  • Do love country life? Great. We are looking for people who have a genuine passion for regional and rural areas, and don’t mind stepping out of their comfort zone.
  • Want to experience Australia? You will be placed in three different regional areas where you can fully understand and integrate into local communities.
  • Are you someone who asks ‘why’ a lot? We love curious people challenging the status quo.
  • Do you think differently about things? A variety of views allow us to come up with the best solutions.
  • Are you a person who loves to learn? You will gain exposure to an industry like no other.
  • Do you seek variety? Every day is different so you’ll never get bored.
  • Are you a natural problem solver? You must be willing to adapt on the run, be positive and proactive.
  • Love a chat? Great, we do to. We also find it really important when it comes to being part of a team and building relationships with our clients.

Are you in? Here’s what happens next

We want to get to know you for who you really are, and don’t believe that we can assess that by simply reading your resume or LinkedIn profile. This means that there’s no need to send us a copy of your resume, or even your cover letter.

Instead, we invite you to take part in a series of games which assess a range of cognitive abilities. That’s it.

If you move to the next stage, we’ll invite you to do a Personality Questionnaire. There are no right or wrong answers, we just want to learn more about how you prefer to work.

From here, you’ll be invited to complete a digital interview (meaning you can interview from the comfort of home), where you record your answers to prompts in a series of short videos. Finally, we’d love to meet you in-person in our office for an interview.

This could be the perfect opportunity for you to take your career to the next level. Apply today and give it a go.

Our Graduates

ANZ


What our Graduates say:

Ella

Name: Ella
Graduate Program: Institutional
Degree: Bachelor of Engineering / Bachelor of Commerce
Describe yourself in one word: Persistent

What do you get involved in your spare time?

In my spare time I love to get out and about (hikes and trips to the beach), cook and eat out. I also enjoy exercising and enjoying our beautiful city!

In which area of ANZ did you complete your 8-week internship?

I completed my internship in Research & Analysis, Diversified Industries in the Institutional area. This was a great introduction into the heart of institutional lending, and allowed me to meet and learn about other industries and teams as well as the one I was working in. I was surrounded by a great team and met a lot of really supportive and informative people. The thing I enjoyed the most about the internship was the variety and interesting nature of the customers the team serviced.

What has been your favourite rotation within the graduate program?

My favourite rotation within the graduate program was my first rotation, in Customer Strategy. This team enabled me to get an overview of the Institutional area and how all the different sub-areas and teams interact and fit together.

What do you love most about working for ANZ?

The people. I’ve been really lucky and worked with a lot of great people, as well as made some close friends with other graduates at ANZ. So far I’ve found that there are many supportive and helpful people around.

Describe a typical day for you.

On a typical day my role involves managing a portfolio of clients across different industries. This involves understanding these customers, the industries in which they operate and broader economic trends that will have an impact on them. It also involves responding to customer queries and managing the banks relationship with these customers.


Rhys

Name: Rhys
Graduate Program: Finance
Degree: Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting) / Bachelor of Arts (English Literature) / Bachelor of Applied Finance
Describe yourself in one word: Creative

What do you get involved in your spare time?

Prior to studying Finance and Accounting I spent a number of years studying Literature and Creative Writing, and I still try to find time to read and write creatively during my spare time.  I’ve also lived overseas for a number of years, and I’m always planning my next big adventure.  The Camino de Santiago pilgrim trail through Spain is next on my list!

What has been your favourite rotation within the graduate program?

I most enjoyed my rotation through the External Reporting team.  This team is responsible for producing ANZ’s financial statements, which is the key way the bank communicates its strategy and results to the public. 

Why would you recommend ANZ to others?

Speaking as a graduate, I would recommend ANZ because of the many developmental opportunities working here provides.  Graduates are encouraged to take on lots of different responsibilities in their various teams, but are always supported in their learning. Taking ownership over your tasks gives you a greater sense of empowerment at work.  Plus, the open, collaborative environment at ANZ means you are constantly exposed to new ways of thinking.   

Describe a typical day for you.

What I have enjoyed most about my experience at ANZ is that there isn’t really a typical day.  Some days I might be required to prepare monthly accounting journals, others I might be asked to help come up with ways to improve or simplify an existing process, or I could even be asked to build a new spreadsheet model.  The great thing about being a graduate is that you’re encouraged to try new things; and ANZ is also an organisation that adopts a philosophy of continuous improvement. 


Sewmee

Name: Sewmee
Graduate Program:  Technology
Degree:  Bachelor of Engineering (Electrical) / Bachelor of Commerce (Accounting)
Describe yourself in one word:  Enthusiastic

What do you get involved in your spare time?

I love to learn new things. I am currently improving my programming skills by learning JavaScript. I also try my hand at cooking new healthy food recipes!

In which area of ANZ did you complete your 8-week internship?

I was part of a team called Global Technology Property Delivery in Technology Service Management. The highlight for me was when I was given the opportunity to be part of ANZ’s new Tullamarine Data Centre Project. I really enjoyed it as I got to experience project management and vendor management in a real life project for the first time! Being back at ANZ as a Graduate, I received the opportunity to visit the actual data centre and it was amazing to see the end result!

Why did you choose ANZ?

I saw that ANZ’s Summer Intern Program had received lot of recognition and I also wanted to take a risk and try a non- engineering role. During my internship I realised how much ANZ can offer when it comes to personal and career development. Hence, I wanted to come back and join as a Graduate.

What has been your favourite rotation within the graduate program?

I’m currently in my first rotation and loving it!  I’m a release analyst in Digital Security. My team specialises in producing new security features and services to enhance customer experience and ensure that our customers are given the highest level of security with their day-to- day banking. I love that my job involves working with a variety of teams such as developers, testers, vendors, business, support and Information Security. Definitely puts my stakeholder management skills to test!

What was your biggest misconception about working at a bank?

That it was just banking and you know technology was mostly just assisting customers with technical issues! The internship was a real eye opener as it made me realise how diverse the technology area is and the wide variety of roles it has to offer.


Josh

Name: Josh
Graduate Program: Australia Division
Degree: Bachelor of Commerce / Bachelor of Economics
Describe yourself in one word: Dedicated

What do you get involved in your spare time?

In my spare time I like to keep active, noting that a lot of my days now are spent at a desk! I’ve always played a lot of sports growing up and I’ve tried to maintain that as part of my lifestyle moving into full-time work. I play soccer every weekend, and during the weekdays I try and get to the gym after work.

I’ve also been a very keen traveller ever since I caught the travel bug after my first trip to Europe

In which area of ANZ did you complete your 8-week internship?

What was your experience like? I completed my program in the Emerging Corporate (EC) segment as part of a team based out of 100 Queen St, Melbourne. I feel that I was really lucky to be placed into EC as it provided me the opportunity to experience an 8- week crash course on typical customer facing Corporate & Commercial banking, and develop a real appreciation for what a day in the life of a typical frontline banker that services our Commercial & Corporate clients is like. From funding analysis surrounding financial performance and security positions, to assisting in maintaining the team’s internal reporting and compliance requirements, it really was a well-rounded, challenging and rewarding experience.

What has been a highlight of your graduate program?

The biggest highlight for me aside from all the experiences and personal development through my rotations has been all the people I’ve met along the way, particularly the other Graduates. Throughout my time on the Graduate Program I have gotten to know some really great and interesting people, and I have made connections that I know will last for years to come.

What was your biggest misconception about working at a bank?

Definitely the pace of change! ANZ has proven itself to be a truly dynamic organisation; we are constantly adapting and responding to the changes and challenges of an ever evolving landscape, which in my opinion is exciting.

What do you love most about working at ANZ?

That would have to be the people. The connections I’ve made and the people I’ve met and continue to work with are such a crucial part of why I enjoy coming to work every day. The culture at ANZ is one of comradery and co- development, a fantastic environment for any person at the beginning of their career. And it’s a culture that I am proud to be a part of.
