Our Graduates

Australian Securities and Investments Commission


Darren

Meet Darren

Bachelor of Law & International Studies

"During the graduate program I was exposed to a breadth of different work, from writing briefing notes for the Chairman, to drafting policy papers and preparing briefs of evidence for the prosecution of insider trading offences.

ASIC values the work and enthusiasm of graduates and will provide you with challenging and interesting work from the outset. I am consistently faced with new and interesting legal challenges that keep me engaged in my work.

The graduate fundraising project was definitely a highlight of the program. We were able to take charge of our own project, work together as a group and raise money to help those in need.

I also love ASIC's strong commitment to diversity in all aspects of the workplace and the strength and enjoyment it brings to the organisation."


Akanksha


Meet Akanksha

Bachelor of Applied Finance & Accounting

"One of the highlights of my time on the graduate program has been the breadth of experiences and variety of work. ASIC has such a large remit, and with the rotations offered by the program there is always diverse and exciting work to take on.

My rotations have included implementing mandatory clearing for OTC Derivatives, assisting with an audit inspection at a Big Four accounting firm and helping to organise a RegTech Roundtable for the ASIC Innovation Hub.

ASIC offers a range of formal and informal learning opportunities but on-the-job learning has been the most valuable. Through exposure to new concepts and ideas, and working with experts in their field you are able to produce work you never knew you were capable of in the first place. "


Jono


Meet Jono

Bachelor of Economics & Finance

"I love the variety of work ASIC offers.  I have had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects from policy development, undertaking compliance assessments of licensee and financial advisers, developing new tools for ASIC using data analytics and statistical techniques and reporting on the domestic and global economy, just to name a few.

My time on the graduate program included working on an 8 month transformation project which involved working directly with the Commission, The Treasury, Department of Finance and a range of government agencies.

I have enjoyed the opportunity to learn from managers who have a wealth of experience across a range of financial sectors and who are incredibly helpful in assisting junior staff to learn and develop their skills."


Rochelle


Meet Rochelle

Bachelor of Information Technology

"My rotations in the Information Technology teams have been in IT Security, End User Infrastructure and Database Administration. The work has ranged from ensuring systems are compliant with policies set out by the Australian Signals Directorate, through to coordinating updates on ASIC technology to ensure a robust system implementation.

A highlight has been working directly with the Chief Information Officer, to encourage young women in to the field of IT. This has inspired me to think creatively about how we can close the gender gap in the IT industry, allowing ideas to come to life by being introduced to a network of executive women in IT.

The people really do make the culture of the organisation, and ASIC has a pleasant working environment which makes it enjoyable to come in to work each morning. "
