If you’re interested in working at BT, understanding when they have opened up applications for their graduate programs, graduate jobs and internships is helpful knowledge to have so you know when you might need to apply.

In 1969, BT began as the Australian subsidiary of the Bankers Trust Company of New York, Bankers Trust Australia, and since this time has continued to define itself by adapting and responding to customer needs.
The Bankers Trust Company was formed in 1903 in New York, and was sold to Deutsche Bank in 1998. In 1999 the Bankers Trust Australian division was sold to the US-based Principal Financial Group, who sold the asset management division, BT Funds Management, to the Westpac Banking Corporation (Westpac) in 2002.
Westpac combined BT Funds Management with its previous wealth acquisition - the Rothschild asset management business - and its own Financial Services operations, to form an expanded wealth management division of Westpac – BT Financial Group (BTFG).
In 2008, the St. George Wealth Management business merged with BTFG to form one of the largest wealth management businesses in Australia. St.George Bank’s Wealth Management division brought eight unique businesses with them, which included Asgard, Securitor, Licensee Select, Advance Asset Management, St.George Financial Planning and St.George Private Clients.
This saw the brands of BT, BT Investment Management, Magnitude, Westpac Financial Planning, Insurance and Private Bank join forces with Asgard, Securitor, Advance, Licensee Select, Ascalon Capital Managers, St.George Financial Planning (including BankSA Financial Planning) and St.George Private Clients.
In 2019, Westpac Group announced changes to the structure of its wealth business, BT Financial Group. This included an exit from financial advice; with the private wealth, platforms, investments and superannuation businesses moving into Westpac’s expanded Business division; and the insurance business moving into Westpac’s Consumer division. As a result, BTFG is no longer run as a separate division, but has become a single wealth management brand within Westpac, now known as BT .
Today, BT’s evolution continues. From BTFG with a respected collection of brands who were leaders in their market segments to now being BT – Westpac Group’s wealth solutions brand, fulfilling a more connected role within Westpac, side by side with banking, to build lifelong relationships with customers in the moments that matter.

How the recruitment process works
Q: What's your recruitment process like?
A: Your best bet is to have a look at our full application process which lists each stage of the process step by step.
Q: How can I make my CV stand out?
A: Keep your CV simple, concise, easy to read and focused on selling your skills. We'd prefer that your CV is no longer than four pages. And of course, make it professional and clearly written with no grammatical errors, spelling mistakes or typos.
Q: Can I apply for more than one position?
A: Of course you can, but please keep in mind that to be considered for the positions you should have the relevant experience and qualifications highlighted by the job advertisement.
Q: Will you accept CVs from recruitment agencies?
A: We'll only accept a CV from a recruitment agent if the agency has been formally briefed by one of our Talent Acquisition Consultants. If you think your CV has been submitted without your consent, please call us on 1300 130 548 or email a Talent Acquisition Consultant.
Knowing which role to apply for
Q: The role I'm interested in is full-time but I only want to work part-time. Should I still apply?
A: Definitely. At BT all of our roles are flexible, and we are an equal opportunity employer. We support flexible working and recognise that people may want to work flexibly for any reason, and at all levels and ages. So basically that means that every role is open to experienced candidates who are happy to have a discussion around workplace flexibility.
Q: The role I've applied for isn't in the same region that I live in, is that a problem?
A: No it isn't a problem. That's because we think that all roles can be flexible, and that includes location. So we are more than happy for you to apply for an interstate role. After all, work is something you do, not somewhere you go.
Q: I couldn't see a role I wanted to apply for today. Can you let me know when a suitable position becomes available?
A: The best way to do this is to create your own profile by uploading your CV and answering a few questions about yourself. We can then send you email alerts when relevant roles become available.
Submitting an application
Q: Do I need to be an Australian resident to apply for a position with the BT?
A: You must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, a permanent resident or have a specific Visa when you apply to be considered for a job with us, specific details are outlined here.
Q: Can I send you an updated CV even though I've already submitted my application?
A: Yes, you can just visit the online application portal where you first uploaded your CV and update your details.
Q: How will I know you received my application?
A: You should get an email to confirm that we received your application within 24 hours of you submitting it. Make sure you check your junk mail folder in case it gets moved there. Of course if you haven't heard from us after 24 hours, please call a Talent Acquisition Consultant on 1300 130 548 or send us an email.
Q: I'm having issues with submitting my application, what should I do?
A: In our experience, the most common issue people have is forgetting their username or password. If this is your problem, select the 'Reset your password' link on the application login page and we'll send you your login details. As always, don't forget to look in your junk mail folder when you're checking for the email.
Recruitment time frames and applications status
Q: How long will the recruitment process take?
A: We can't give you an exact timeframe, because every role is different. However we'll try our best to keep you informed about your progress as much as possible.
Q: How can I check the status of my application?
A: You can check the progress of your application at any time using our online tracking system, which you can access via the application login page.
