What do you get involved in your spare time?

What our Grads have to say:

anz

Name: Anna Salatas

Graduate Program: Technology Graduate Program 2021

Degree: Bachelor of Banking and Finance/Bachelor of Business (Marketing & Economics)

Describe yourself in one word: Energetic

What do you get involved in your spare time:

In my spare time I love to bring out my adventurous side and get active. You’d find me exploring new places around Victoria, roller-skating in a park or taking part in a dance/pilates class. I am also a major foodie (perk of living in Melbourne!) and spend my weekends enjoying a bite from a new restaurant I’ve been wanting to try!

In which area of ANZ did you complete your graduate/intern program: Technology Graduate Program (didn’t complete an internship).

What has been your favourite rotation within the graduate program:

My favourite rotation has been within Institutional Technology as a Surveillance Analyst (the title is definitely as fun as it sounds)! My team helps initiate changes that will help improve and automate services within the Institutional domain in the Surveillance Squads. I was able to be part of such interesting projects that affect all ANZ employees globally and my favourite part was that I was able to communicate and bring together so many different people such as vendors, developers, technology architects and security to work on a common goal!  

What do you love most about working for ANZ:

The flexibility is incredible, I am a Technology graduate that doesn’t have a tech background! ANZ is super flexible which is such a big perk as the opportunities are endless! What I love even more though are the people I am surrounded by. The level of support I have from everyone around me is amazing. No matter who you reach out to, they will always give you their time and attention to help and talk and it makes ANZ such an enjoyable environment to grow and develop in. I have also built so many connections with the other grads and we speak to each other all the time, it is great to have friends that are going through the program with you!

Describe a typical day for you:

A typical day starts firstly with a morning coffee that I got from my favourite café with some of the grads and plan out my day by replying to any emails I have, then I will reach out to my grad-program buddy to check in and have a small catch-up. I will have meetings planned out that relate to my projects including briefing a new stakeholder such as a security partner and explain how they can help reach our project goals or a meeting with the vendors to ask if their tasks are tracking well. If I’m in the office I’ll see which grads are in to grab some lunch together or spend my lunchtime going for a walk while at home. I also like to dedicate a few hours a week for my own development, ANZ has amazing learning resources that are great for upskilling! I have already completed courses in Cloud, programming languages and more! In the afternoon, I work on any documents I am creating for the projects and we have our daily catch-ups with our team that I have been running to see how everyone is going with their tasks. I end my day by briefing the Project Manager and Business Owners of my project updates and enjoy some after-work city views and catch-ups with friends. What I really love is that no day is the same, I have been asked to help volunteer at ANZ events, I attend different information presentations and join events that the grad team has put together for us!

In which area of ANZ did you complete your graduate/intern program: 

ANZx Business Transformation (Technology)

What has been your favourite rotation within the graduate program: 

I’m currently in my first rotation working as a business analyst within our Join Value Stream - Identity and Access Management, which has involved work such as ensuring the right users have the appropriate access to the right technology resources as well as uplifting the features of our Identity platform. I love that the work is varied and allows me to engage with a variety of people; developers, platform engineers, architects, testers as well as other analysts. It’s really interesting work and has been a huge learning experience for me so far - especially coming from a non-technical background!

What do you love most about working for ANZ:

It would definitely have to be the people. Despite being in and out of lockdown, it’s been great having the support of the other graduates! I’ve also been able to work with some really lovely people so far who have been generous with their time and very willing to support my learning - definitely helps as a new grad!

Describe a typical day for you: 

My tasks will vary day to day, but typically I’ll either be analysing requirements given to the team by business stakeholders, engaging with other teams to gather requirements or building out/refining user stories in preparation for our developers.

Name: Annie Matthews

Graduate Program: 2020 ANZ Agribusiness Graduate Program

Degree: Bachelor Agricultural Business Management (CSU Wagga Wagga)

Describe yourself in one word: Driven

What do you get involved in your spare time: 

Staying active, spending time on my family’s farms

In which area of ANZ did you complete your graduate/intern program: 

Agri Business Banking (in Bowral, NSW & Albury, NSW) & Specialist Distribution (Agri) in Rockhampton, QLD.

What has been your favourite rotation within the graduate program: 

Hard to choose, but probably Business Banking in Albury – a good, supportive team around you makes all the difference

What do you love most about working for ANZ: 

The people you work with, but also feeling you are positively contributing to your clients, who in my case are predominately hard working farmers.

Describe a typical day for you: 

A good day would look like a morning in the office working on things like annual reviews, credits, asset finance etc., then heading out on farm with my manager for meetings with clients for the afternoon. Other days I may be working from home so will spend the better part of the day at my desk, so getting outside or doing a workout is a must for me in the evenings.

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.

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.

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.

Study while you work as A Finance Graduate @ANZ

Zachary McNamee, Finance Graduate

There is nothing better to get the blood pumping in the morning than smashing out some study (CFA, CPA, CA… whatever tickles your fancy) before work and skimming through the news to see what’s happening in the big wide world.

At about 9:00am things start to pick up and the office is starting to hum. Some days it’s a team meeting - other days you will have booked in a networking chat over a coffee/juice/vanilla thick shake! Either way, you are going to be kicking off your morning learning from senior leaders and asking questions.

By 9:45am you are deep into a bit of analysis. This time round you’re doing a deep dive into the pricing stack used by the market’s business. Maximizing the number of deals the desk wins without reducing the level of cost recovery currently imbedded in the price. Work that is very different to the monthly bank performance summary you prepared yesterday. A summary that the Group CFO is going to present to the banks Board of Directors at the end of the week.

At 10:30am, our Talent and Culture team have set a meeting between the finance grads and the CFO of the Institutional business so you can really get to know one of your key stakeholders on a personal level. After a morning of asking questions, you are a tad peckish. So you duck out of the office for some Japanese with your team.

When you get back you have two hours to put the finishing touches on this morning’s markets pricing analysis so that you are ready to present to the Head of Markets in the afternoon.

Once your presentation is complete, you will most likely want to ask your manager the fifty-four questions you wrote down during your meeting with the Head of Markets, all of which get answered in full (aside from those three really hard ones that even your boss who has been doing this for the last twenty years had to think about and get back to you on).

And that just about wraps it up! Your work is done for the day - well in time for your weekly mixed netball game or Wednesday night trivia with mates!


About our Team

Disciplines and majors for Finance graduates 

For the 2022 Finance graduate intake, we’re looking to broaden the backgrounds we traditionally take our graduates from. While Finance, Accounting, Economics, Business and Commerce remain important, more and more of what we do in Finance is driven by technology and data. As a result, we’re interested in the following disciplines /majors:

  • Accounting
  • Finance
  • Economics
  • Econometrics
  • Business or Commerce
  • Technology or Computing and Software Systems
  • Data Science
  • Mathematics and Statistics
  • Engineering
  • Sciences

A double discipline is desirable but not essential and a high grade point average will make for a competitive application in this program.

Desirable Personal Attributes

Academic achievement in relevant fields of study is important; we also look for personal attributes that will help you thrive in our working environment. 

The nature of our work is always changing, so having people who demonstrate resilience and adaptability are great assets. It’s not always easy, but we need people who embrace a challenge.

Being curious, bold and seeking new ways of doing things are the attributes we look for in addition to working collaboratively. We love new ideas and external perspectives!

Our finance graduates who have succeeded in the long term who have come through this program embrace diversity, are passionate about our customers, curious about the business we are in and love working collaboratively to develop and deliver better outcomes.

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 reducing your experiences to a page. This means that there is 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 will 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 will be invited to do a digital interview (meaning you can interview from the comfort of your home), where you record your answers to prompts in a series of short videos. Finally, we would love to meet you in-person in our office where we have an assessment centre that includes an interview and a role play. This could be the perfect opportunity for you to take your career to the next level - apply today on www.anz.com.au/about-us/careers/programs/graduates/  and give it a go!

Technology

Journalism Grad turned Tech Grad – ANZ values cross-skillsets

anz

Danielle Darbyshire, Technology Graduate

When my Dad recommended I apply for the ANZ Technology Graduate Program, I laughed. Me? I didn’t study anything related to IT or banking. One night, spurred on by a moment of confidence I thought, why not just apply and see how I go; after all, what did I have to lose? Not having to submit a resume and instead, play a few games (yes, this really is the application process!), was definitely an incentive to apply.
Little did I know, a soon-to-be journalism grad was about to be accepted as a Technology Graduate for ANZ. I would like to share with you, four truth bombs I came upon since I joined the program.

#1. Don’t dull down your past experiences, they make you unique

One of the first things I learnt applying for a graduate position at ANZ (and being in the role), is to not discount your past experience as this is ultimately what makes us all unique! For ANZ, the broader experiences that shape who we are, are just as important as “technical skills” when they consider whom to recruit. Before starting at ANZ, I’d worked many different jobs – often juggling two at a time. As a teenager I coached and umpired netball, before securing my first ‘real’ job at Kmart Australia where I worked my way up to become a Duty Manager. I did lots of other things too: working with students with physical and learning difficulties, waitressing at my parent’s café, being active in sports and at university, and I also did a few internships. The purpose of me telling you all of this, is to emphasise that these experiences (all very different), teach us how to be a team player, a leader, how to multi-task, be resilient – the list goes on. And these skills have helped me adapt to the corporate world and the New Ways of Working model that ANZ has adopted in recent years. So, don’t disregard the things you have done previously as these really are what set you apart!

#2. A number does not define you

I am sure we’ve all heard someone say this before, especially when ATARs were released after high school, but you are not defined by a number. When thinking about a company you want to work for, an organisation who recognises this is a big plus. ANZ’s recruitment process places a big emphasis on people with a ‘growth mindset’ – someone who is open to learning and evolving. The questions I was asked at the ANZ Assessment Centre, were therefore focused on getting to know me as a person and the different facets that make me who I am, rather than questions about how well I did in school or university. Although I have always loved learning and worked hard to get good grades, it was comforting to know that it was my experiences, my values and my passion for learning that helped me get into the program – the same for my fellow grad cohort!

#3 You don’t need to study finance or IT to work for a Bank

As I said at the start, this common misconception is something I have definitely learnt since I began working at ANZ. Banks don’t just need people who have studied finance or IT - the same way a café doesn’t just need baristas! Coming from a communications background, I was initially hesitant and unsure where I’d find myself in ANZ’s Technology Division. However, my first rotation was in the Employee Engagement and Awareness Squad where I used many of the skills I’d learnt in my degree. My main role was working with stakeholders to ensure our employees are informed with accurate information to be able to do their jobs – a lot of which requires good communication! There are of course the pure tech roles and IT graduates who get involved in the back end work of the ANZ mobile app, create scripts, and conduct journey mapping exercises. But, if you have studied something that doesn’t fit the ‘typical’ degree required for a bank, use this to your advantage! The ANZ assessment process has a big emphasis on candidate’s alignment to ANZ’s values as well as ensuring culture fit. Again, the removal of a resume/CV, removes the bias usually associated with this! You can bring in a new perspective, a fresh set of eyes and without a doubt, a new coffee order to the team…

#4. Be flexible and ready to pivot

Once you land a job, continuing to have a ‘growth mindset’ is crucial. In a Graduate Program, there are usually a number of rotations you complete (ANZ has 3 x 6-month rotations) so you need to be open to new things. A growth mindset lets you see rotations as opportunities to hone your skills in your field and broaden your skill set to learn more about different areas. Nothing is really off limits, if you are keen to learn, ask questions and be willing to pivot if something pops up along the way!

As I embark on my next rotation, I am still unsure where I want to head. All I know is that applying for the ANZ Graduate Program was one of the best things I’ve ever done. So if you’re thinking of applying but don’t think you’ll fit the mould – you are probably exactly what ANZ is looking for...


Take a leap in the right direction

One of the best ways to learn is to throw you into new experiences. Each of our key business areas in Australia and New Zealand have programs that offer multiple rotations. Our program will ensure you get 18 months of valuable ‘real life’ work experiences as well as exposure to a diverse range of people, environments and situations before moving into a permanent role within the bank. We also provide supportive coaching, peer-to-peer learning, mentoring, training, networking and sponsorship from senior leaders.

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 around the world, processing billions of dollars every day. We have employees in ANZ Technology working globally, all 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 continued 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 different Technology areas. We’ve got a lot of different domains & tribes in 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 support you to develop your breadth of knowledge of tech @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 which lets you take ownership of a piece of work alongside your 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.

Where will you be located?

We have Technology graduates based in Melbourne. We are operating in a blended mode which means the role will be a mix of virtual and physical (where possible).

Here are some areas you might work in

Cloud Services

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.

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.

Data

Building machine learning applications to automate process - [email protected]

anz

Jeremy Forbes, Data Scientist

My day starts by sipping on a warm cup of tea, reading any comms that have been sent out that morning and looking at the JIRA board to help me plan what I’m going to prioritise for the day. My squad is made up of awesome data analysts, engineers and scientists from Melbourne and Bangalore, so unlike most other squads in Aus Data, we have our daily stand ups in the afternoon. This works well for me, as it allows me to have a few hours of focused work in the morning.

As a Data Scientist I’m working on building machine learning applications that will help improve and automate ANZ’s processes. So day to day that means I might be spending time on many parts of the end-to-end process. Today that might look like doing exploratory data analysis in Python to better understand the data I’ve got my hands on and spending time breaking it down with teammates. Tomorrow I might be more focused on fitting ML models and discussing results with stakeholders. One of the great things about my squad and the broader data science chapter is that whenever I have a question, someone is always available and eager to help.

Because we’ve been working remotely for a while now, we’ve got our meme game and virtual coffee routines down pat. Most days I’ll typically have a virtual coffee with a friend or mentor at some point in the morning, and also find myself laughing too much at a hilariously lame data science meme sent in our team chat.

Once the afternoon rolls around its time for the daily stand up. This is a great opportunity to check in with the squad to discuss progress made, action times and any blockers – but more importantly, a bit of time to catch up and have a laugh!

After that I’ll action any priority items from the stand up and do a little more work before joining an interesting presentation on data science tools or projects run by one of our many knowledge sharing initiatives in Aus Data.

Then it’s time to wind down, send end-of-day GIFs to my team and make sure I’ve committed my code before calling it a day.”

Want to put yourself in this picture?

We look for ways for you to connect with data and transform its use to help create customer insights and drive automation. We bring together people from across the bank to get value in the hands of customers and colleagues as easily as possible, autonomy, purpose and mastery wrapped together.

We’re looking for curious and analytical minds that can organize and interpret data and numbers, pick up trends and make informed recommendations. People who are passionate and want to learn about customers’ specific needs and how they can help through data analysis. We want people who build great relationships with others and bring fun and energy to their work and to the wider team. 

Growing our people through development opportunities and work experiences is a critical part of how we evolve and strengthen your capabilities. The effective use of data, insights and automation will be key to building the future of banking.

We’re hiring for now and for the future.

Heaven Hu, Technology Graduate – Platform Engineer

It’s Tuesday morning and I am ready with my cup of coffee… maybe a bit of avo on toast and get prepared for the day ahead. Logging into the daily stand up our slack channel is already buzzing with the teams’ updates. There are pictures of last night’s dinner and what we’re up to for the day ahead… the usual chat. 

My team of six engineers start to allocate tasks.  It’s pretty exciting.

Today, I’ll be doing some pair programming today which has been a great experience given that before my rotation I had never been a platform engineer. I share my screen while a senior Platform Engineer watches my work and guides me through the tricky parts.

After lunch I continue to work on the allocated tasks from this morning, the slack channel is continuing to buzz along. We’re always chatting and listening to music. 

We might be working remotely but we’re still a close team. It’s nice to work for a collaborative team. I don’t have to be scared asking a question. My team are always here to help and guide me, they always say don’t be scared to ask questions as we’re all learning. They are always patient and make sure I have the relevant references I need. 

At 5.30pm I start to wind down and say “bye” to my teammates, one of my colleagues has an open source project called rasbernetes that he’s working on and has asked me to contribute. It’s been really helpful to work on this and get feedback so that I can develop my skills.

I really enjoy working for ANZ’s Australia Business Transformation, the environment encourages creativity and the Leads are always clear in where we’re going on this journey together.

Australia Retail & Commercial Banking

Working directly with clients to provide the best suited products

anz

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, its time for a walk and my 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.

I love meeting with customers, its 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. 

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 the day is done. 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.


Take a leap in the right direction

One of the best ways to learn is to throw you into new experiences. Each of our key business areas in Australia and New Zealand have programs that offer multiple rotations. Our program will ensure you get 18 months of valuable ‘real life’ work experiences as well as exposure to a diverse range of people, environments and situations before moving into a permanent role within the bank. We also provide supportive coaching, peer-to-peer learning, mentoring, training, networking and sponsorship from senior leaders.

What your day might look like as a Graduate within our Australia retail & Commercial Business

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.

Jordan Russo, Australia Retail & Commercial Graduate

What your day might look like as a Graduate in our Frontline Business 

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.

Where will you be located?

We have Australia Retail and Commercial graduates based across WA, QLD, NSW, SA & Victoria and the rotations are generally based out of the capital cities and surrounding suburbs.

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

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?

  • 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.

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 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.

Improving clients banking experience in Institutional [email protected]

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. 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.

Agribusiness

[email protected] – no two days are the same

Renae Bice, Agribusiness Graduate

Since graduating university, I was lucky enough to be a part of the 2020 ANZ Agribusiness Graduate program. To be honest, if you asked me when I left school or at the start of university where I would be at the end of my degree, I never would have thought I would be working in a bank. I am extremely passionate about the Australian Agriculture Industry and while I was attending the annual Australia Dairy Conference, I was lucky to enough to meet like-minded people who introduced me to a fellow ANZ Agribusiness manager and graduate at the time who encouraged me to apply for the program.

I saw huge benefit being able to broaden my agribusiness knowledge, service Agri customers as well as enhance my knowledge into different agriculture industries through the rotations.  A few months later, I received a call offering me a position that I could not turn down. In my first rotation I was placed in Gippsland, VIC, which was predominantly dairy based and due to COVID saw myself working back at home on the farm until I relocated to the Southern Highlands, for my second rotation which was refreshing starting back in the office and gaining insight into both agribusiness and commercial clients and finishing the program with my final rotation located in South West Vic. 

If someone had told me at the beginning of the year that I would be working from home more than in the office, I would have told them they’re joking. Starting a career in a pandemic was a challenging experience but I am amazed of how technology has enabled everyone to adapt and continue to work, learn and be more resilient.  The work I complete changes day to day which is one thing I love about being an Agribusiness Graduate. One day you could be out visiting clients (which is definitely a highlight of the job) and being able to see first-hand their businesses and how we can make a positive impact, to the next day, sitting in front of the computer preparing documents, assessing transactions with your manager, analysing financials and of course checking emails. I am lucky to be in a position where I'm able to connect with farmers on a daily basis and being able to roll off the Graduate program into a position to do so excites me. 


Take a leap in the right direction

One of the best ways to learn is to throw you into new experiences. Each of our key business areas in Australia and New Zealand have programs that offer multiple rotations. Our program will ensure you get 18 months of valuable ‘real life’ work experiences as well as exposure to a diverse range of people, environments and situations before moving into a permanent role within the bank. We also provide supportive coaching, peer-to-peer learning, mentoring, training, networking and sponsorship from senior leaders.

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.

Where will you be located? 

ANZ have over 300 business centres located in regional Australia, so there are a lot of possible locations for you to complete your rotations in. You could be placed anywhere in Australia for a truly immersed regional experience. Simply let us know where you live when you complete your application and we can assess where the best experience will be taking into consideration your home location.

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? 

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.
