We’re committed to helping the next generation of graduates prepare for the future workplace in a world where disruption is the norm. But don’t just take our word for it, hear from a few of our STEAM Graduates about why they chose the Westpac Graduate Program and how they’re using their ‘non-traditional’ degrees to revolutionise the banking and finance industry.


phill

Phil, Bachelor of Environmental Biology

Digital Graduate

“Although I loved studying Science, I was passionate about innovation in tech and digital experiences, so I began researching careers options that would leverage my transferable skills. As a Westpac customer it was a no brainer to check out what they had to offer, and I was surprised to find they wanted diversity in the degree backgrounds of their Graduates.

Digital is responsible for everything web and app based for both consumer and business customers. This ranges from digital sales to security, to developing new features in apps to investigating new tech for the future of the bank”.


jaz

Jacinta, Biomedical Engineering

Transformation Graduate

“As a biomedical engineer, I really wanted to make a difference and welcomed a change of direction to a new industry. The banking industry touches every person in Australia and I wanted to work in a field that can improves people’s lives and support the Australian economy.

The Transformation graduate program provides exposure to a range of projects across the bank and flows through all businesses and brands. The program puts you at the forefront of new initiatives, projects and changes being driven across the group which are designed to benefit our consumer, business and institutional customers. It is hugely rewarding to see ideas go from inception to delivery and witness firsthand the impact these transformational projects have on our customers and our business.”


georgia

Georgia, Bachelor of Arts

Consumer Banking Graduate

“As an Arts Graduate, many people have asked why I chose banking, and why I chose Westpac.

Westpac stood out to me right from the get-go as an employer who prioritised diversity of thought and cultivated a culture of service excellence – two things that I am really passionate about. I applied because I felt aligned to these values, and here I am today!

I like to refer to the Consumer Bank as the heart and soul of Westpac. It’s our customer-facing division that is responsible for driving exceptional experiences for our consumer customers. The consumer bank is made up of our retail branches, customer support teams, our products, our digital channel, our marketing function and much more. All of these areas are united by one thing, and that’s our customer.”


will

Will, Bachelor of Law

BT Financial Graduate

“I’ve always been a Westpac customer but had never really considered working for a bank. When I’d decided to make the move from the legal profession into financial services, one of the things that drew me to the BT Financial Group graduate program was the advantage of the intensive 12-month development program, which would provide an excellent foundation for my career in banking.

The BT Financial Group graduate program involves four rotations over a 12-month period that provide Graduates with exposure to key areas of financial services. It is ultimately the Wealth Management business of Westpac Group, and includes dealing with products such as investments, superannuation, insurance and financial advice.”


Brandon

Brandon, Bachelor of Secondary Teaching

Human Resources Graduate

“HR is responsible for a variety of strategic initiatives which drive business decisions including talent acquisition, inclusion and diversity, workforce planning, organisational design and group capability to name a few. In HR we truly believe that our people are our customers, and our main objective is to build a workplace that people not only want to work in but can thrive in.

Throughout my Graduate program, I experienced four distinct rotations. The first was within the HR Service Centre, where I was able to build a solid foundation of all HR policies and employee matters here at Westpac. From there, I moved into the Group Reward team, where I implemented Westpac’s redesigned performance and reward platform, as well as supporting our Consumer Bank portfolio through their annual remuneration review. Lastly, I moved into the Strategic Workforce Planning and Organisation Design team where the main function is to identify the right talent capabilities that Westpac needs to deliver on our Service Promise.”

Michael

Michael, Corporate & Institutional Banking Graduate

Degree Studied: Bachelor of Commerce and International Business

What is one project you've worked on recently?

I helped out on a natural resources transaction to structure and arrange debt for a major player in the industry, which required me to take on responsibility and liaise with multiple teams across the business to deliver a positive outcome for the client. This transaction eventuated as one of the biggest deals for Corporate & Institutional Banking in 2018 and resulted in us winning a “One Team” award.

What is one thing you love about Westpac?

Westpac’s truly inclusive culture is what sets the bank apart; our people genuinely care about our clients and each other and this inspires me to come to work every day to go above and beyond to make a difference.


Ravina

Ravina, Financial Markets & Treasury Graduate

Degree Studied: Bachelor of Applied Finance and Commerce

What have you experienced as part of the program?

During my program I spent time in Treasury on Global Funding desk, which is primarily responsible for carrying out a portion of Westpac Wholesale funding task. In financial markets, we support not just Westpac, but banks globally who wished to raise money in the Australian market.

What are you excited to get involved in after the program?

I’m keen to move into the rates trading team and develop my trading skills. I’m really excited about the knowledge and experience I’ll be provided and to work with an amazing team that have extensive market experience.


Alissa

Alissa, Global Transaction Services Graduate

Degree Studied: Bachelor of Commerce and Law

Why should students apply to Westpac and the GTS program?

If you love solving customer problems and change and disruption excites you, then you’ll love working in Global Transaction Services. GTS or Global Transaction Services is an area within Westpac Institutional Banking that works with large customers including corporates, government and financial institutions, to manage their cash, mitigate risk and improve operational efficiency through providing range of innovative and customised payment and liquidity solutions. I chose Westpac Group because I wanted to be part of an organisation that was focused on evolving and investing in its business to deliver next generation experiences and products for their customers. Westpac is redefining what it means to be a bank and having a genuinely positive impact. I love that I can be part of this change whilst learning and developing at the same time.


Peter

Peter, Risk Graduate

Degree Studied: Bachelor of Actuarial Studies and Economics

Why did you apply to Westpac?

I applied to Westpac because I believed that it would provide me with an opportunity for mentorship and training from some of the best business leaders in the country, which is an invaluable resource for someone who is just starting their career.

What have you experienced since starting your journey at Westpac?

In Fraud Analytics, we developed methods to detect and prevent financial crimes such as ID takeovers and stolen cards. I was given the task of creating a way to alert the bank of fraudulent logins using global geolocation data from mobile logins. I learned programming languages like Python and HTML to create an interactive mapping tool that not only flags suspicious logins, but also visualises where and when these fraudulent logins occurred – which assists the frontline teams with protecting customers.


Sendy

Sendy, Group Operations Graduate

Degree Studied: Bachelor of Commerce and Human Resources

Why did you apply to Westpac Group?

I applied to Westpac Group because of the commitment to its people. I wanted to work for a company that had a focus on employee growth and development and a wealth of opportunities for every individual: I’ve definitely found this to be true on my career journey so far.

Why should students choose Group Operations?

If you love fast-paced environments, change, and knowing that ultimately you are making a difference in so many ways, then you’ll love working in Group Operations! Group Operations is a really fascinating and fast-paced business. I like to think of it as the engine of the bank – we are the ones that make the magic happen.

What can interns involved in?

Outside of my day job, I worked with various Australian charities and causes, including OzHarvest and Vinnies, the Red Cross, and participated in food van volunteering and fundraising for Youth Off the Streets. It is such a fulfilling way of giving back, to both Westpac and Australian communities.

How To Apply

Westpac Group


We will then be reviewing all applications and communicating next steps. Some parts of our recruitment process may change, given the current climate, but we will keep you updated in due course.

In the meantime, please view our Application Toolkit and access information on how our recruitment process usually works, and hopefully pick up some useful tips and tricks when submitting your application and participating in the recruitment process. This is the sort of thing you would have received from us at Careers Fairs, so thought we would make it available to you virtually given we can’t meet you all in person.

Step 1: Your Application

Your application will take 10 minutes to complete and submit online

Complete all required fields and ensure you attach your resume and academic transcript (Unofficial transcripts are fine!)

Your resume represents your qualifications, experience and interests - make sure you cover off:

  • Your personal details including your full name, location and contact details 
  • Your career objective covering a short explanation about your career goals
  • Your education including qualifications, institution, dates of study, majors and academic average
  • Your previous work experience, which can be industry or non-industry related
  • You will also need to provide your academic average – i.e. GPA, WAM
  • Extracurricular activities: We want to know about you; whether its sporting, volunteering, social, community or university engagement
  • Your skills: these could be technical skills you have gained, foreign languages, or design skills for example

Step 2: Online Assessments

Online testing helps us to determine your alignment to our values and suitability for the role. You will face 3 tests as below:

  • Culture fit – this assessment measures the degree to which a candidate aligns with Westpac's aspirational culture and whether they will be a good cultural fit for the organisation
  • Cognitive ability testing – assesses problem solving and reasoning ability
  • Games based testing – assesses traits and abilities that have links to job performance through a fun game!

Don’t worry, the assessments may sound scary but it’s not pass or fail, we are looking for the candidates that best fit within our organisation and the program you are applying to.

Step 3: Video Interview

This is really your chance to shine, allow us to get to know you better and show off your personality!

We appreciate video interviews are quite daunting and something you may have never done before so here’s a few tips! 

  • If you have never completed a video interview, it may be a good idea to get a feel for the process by recording yourself answer interview questions and then watching the replay to gauge your confidence, body language and ability to succinctly answer the question being asked.
  • Check your background, lighting and camera angle.
  • You will also have some time to read the question and get prepared before hitting record.
  • Don’t panic! You'll get a practice run to test your mic and camera.
  • Treat it as a formal interview so prepare, research and appear professional.
  • Be conscious of posture and body language.
  • Video interviews are not live but be prepared and remember that you cannot pause, stop or restart the interview.

Step 4: Attend your assessment Centre

At the half-day assessment centre you will have a chance to meet our business leaders and put your best foot forward.

Successful applications will be welcomed to a half day assessment centre involving:

  • One-on-one interview
  • A business related case study
  • A group activity

You will have an opportunity to meet with our business and Graduates, use this as an opportunity to ask questions and find out if this is the right fit for you – it’s time to grill us too!

Research is important, think strongly about why you have applied and what you can bring to the role.

It helps to show us your personality, so try and relax and enjoy the day. Rest assured the assessors on the day only want to see you shine!

Step 5: Job Offer

This is the exciting part!

After the Assessment Centre, you will receive a call from us to share with you the great news. If you decide (like us!) that your future is with Westpac Group, then we will require you to accept the offer within seven days. 

  • If you are still in the recruitment process or have received an offer with another organisation, that’s ok with us but please be transparent and we will try to accommodate your situation.
  • If you're unsure about your offer, please give one of our team a call and we are more than happy to discuss this with you, providing further information if needed.
  • If you accept, you will also be required to complete a background check and provide the details of two referees we can contact.
