About the RBA

Reserve Bank of Australia

As Australia's central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is best known for conducting monetary policy, analysing the financial system and issuing the nation's banknotes. Its other major roles include maintaining the safety and efficiency of the payments system, managing Australia's foreign exchange reserves and providing banking services to the Commonwealth Government.

The Reserve Bank of Australia's core values – promotion of the public interest, integrity, excellence, intelligent inquiry and respect – guide everything we do. Our people have a genuine interest in promoting the wellbeing of all Australians and are committed to diversity and inclusion. We aim to ensure that all employees are treated with dignity and respect, and that they experience equal opportunity throughout their careers.

The RBA embraces lifelong learning and understands that professional qualifications, accreditations and postgraduate study contribute to a fulfilling career. Employees at any level can apply for support towards career-relevant professional memberships and study, with additional leave and financial assistance provided.

Work-life balance is important to us, and we understand the contribution that staff wellbeing makes to performance. Employees across our operations are rewarded with access to flexible work arrangements, as well as health and wellbeing programs.

A number of special interest sporting and social clubs enjoy the Bank's support. The RBA's corporate philanthropy program offers significant financial support to several important causes including the Financial Markets Foundation for Children, while RBA employees are generous contributors to a dollar-matching Workplace Giving Program and contribute as skilled volunteers to several charitable initiatives throughout the year.
