2022 Graduate Program - Risk

At ANZ, we are driven by our purpose which is to shape a world where people and communities thrive. 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.

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

Our graduate programs are designed to challenge and reward. We help grow curious minds and develop careers for those motivated to make a positive difference for our customers and community.

We’re on the hunt for graduates who love workshopping ideas, are keen to embrace and explore innovation, and have 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.

We’re interested in people with diverse backgrounds, who are excited about joining a bank that’s reinventing itself to address the complex challenges that society faces today, continuously raise standards in banking, and create opportunities for generations to come.

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


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. During the program, you will be given the opportunity to gain 18 months of valuable ‘real life’ work experiences as well as exposure to a diverse range of people, environments and situations before having the opportunity to move into a permanent role within the bank.  You will learn through exposure to senior leaders, who will support you through coaching, peer-to-peer learning, mentoring, training, networking and sponsorship within the business.


The Risk team is focused on shaping a world where people and communities thrive. That’s why we strive to create a balanced, sustainable economy in which everyone can take part and build a better life. We effectively and efficiently identify and manage evolving compliance and operational risks to keep our customers, employees and business thriving. Do you see yourself in this aspirational culture? We’re looking for people who want to continue to grow, maximising their skills, experience and potential. Join us so we can continue to transform how we work across ANZ. We’re hiring for now and for the future. 


As a Risk Grad, you’ll be rotating through 3 different roles in different areas within Group Risk. This graduate program is unique; unlike working in a consulting firm and advising clients, you will be will be getting into the thick of things and contributing and building on our core purpose by directly working on major transformation programs to support ANZ through change.

  • We are here to support you in your rotations with the chance to learn a mix of skills development, regular one-on-one coffee catch ups and plenty of social activities with other graduates as well as senior people in Group Risk that you’ll love to learn from. Even during COVID we’re focused on embedding you into our Risk and broader ANZ community.
  • You'll have the opportunity to work on a graduate project in the first 6 months which allows you to take ownership of a piece of work entirely! You will be supported by a project sponsor and a project coach but it’ll be your project to deliver on. It’s okay if you stumble, it’s all a learning experience!

Don’t worry if it all sounds a bit much. The best part of working at ANZ is having the 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 complex problems.

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 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!
