2020/21 CommBank Technology (ES) Summer Intern Program - Operational Risk


Enterprise Services (ES) is inherently a high risk Business Unit covering CommBank technology processes, procurement and banking operations processes supporting front line Business Units including Bankwest. ES has both domestic and international operations including London, New York, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, India and the Philippines, and customer verification services in New Zealand. The ES profile includes risks related to technology, cyber, operations, procurement and third party suppliers, delivery (project/ program), data quality and financial crime operations.

The Enterprise Services (ES) Operational Risk team partners with the ES business in the delivery of the Group’s risk management frameworks, with the overall objective of the effective identification, measurement and management of operational and compliance risk.

The ES Operational Risk team brings together specialist risk advice, including Risk Engagement, Supplier Risk, Controls Assurance and Risk in Change, to support the business in the delivery of their outcomes within an effective risk culture. We work closely with the business to deliver insights to enable effective decision making and provide assurance over controls.

As a team we have a strong appetite for technically minded students with an interest in the broader business environment to join our high performing Operational Risk team. To be successful you’ll thrive in a challenging environment, and are curious and tenacious when it comes to solving problems.

Your internship will provide exposure to projects that will change the Bank, your critical thinking will also help challenge and solve technology related issues that the business grapple with every day. You will also have the opportunity to learn from the best and build transferrable skills.

We do more than risk and control assurance. Risk is a mindset where we have the opportunity to challenge and influence the business leaders to make well informed decisions which consider impacts to all the Group’s stakeholders from customers, mum and dad investors through to our Regulators. We look for people to speak up when things aren’t right, offer pragmatic solutions, but most of all to exemplify a determination to support ES to be a better Bank.


We are looking for people to be part of high performing engineering teams in one of the largest and most forward thinking technology houses in Australia.
