2021/22 Summer Intern Program - Finance

At ANZ, we are driven by our purpose and strive 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.


Working at ANZ is not what you might imagine when you think ‘working at a bank’. We do things differently.

Our focus is on your values and capability - you are more than a university mark or previous experience. No CV’s required, we want to get to know you and your ideas.

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”

If you’re motivated by creating social good - join us! We know we play an important role in society, and we don’t take that lightly. We support and empower each other.

Be a part of building communities, providing people with opportunity and helping to transform ideas, hard work and ambition into reality.

Our Intern programs are designed to challenge and reward. We are on the hunt for dynamic students 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.

No matter where your career takes you, our Intern program will provide you with the foundation you need to grow and succeed.

Here are your Summer Internship options:


Where: Melbourne and Sydney

The Finance Summer Intern Program will give you an understanding of the way we operate on a global level, touch on every division of our business and explore how global factors influence our day-to-day operations.
