We reached out to a recent group of Graduates in the Westpac Group Grad Program from a variety of degree disciplines and within different rotations, to talk to us about their experience thus far.

westpac group

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

Lachlan: "I love the spirit of community that is present here at Westpac. Whether it is the support that you are offered from your peers and leaders, the passion for helping customers or the culture of community involvement - it is noticeable how the Westpac Group is built on a strong sense of community."

Melissa: "The people I’ve met at Westpac have all been nothing but amazing. Not just in my team and close networks, but everyone I’ve come across! You can quite literally start a conversation with anyone and they’ll be more than happy to have a chat with you (and go for coffee!)."

Sahan: "The culture.  The guidance and advice I’ve received has been invaluable, and I’ve met some incredibly intelligent and funny people who have been extremely welcoming and supportive. You really are encouraged to bring new ideas to the table and your input is valued."

westpac group

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

Maren: "I first decided to apply to the Westpac Grad program after hearing about the company’s great culture and development opportunities from previous grads. I was eager to kick start my career in an inclusive and stimulating environment, with a company that invests in their employees and the broader community – Westpac ticked all those boxes for me. I chose to apply to the Digital & Marketing stream as it best aligned with my interest and background in Marketing and Psychology." 

Todd: "I’m not a finance or business guy. I studied Arts and Science. When I reflected on what I wanted at the beginning of my career, I wanted to leverage the size of the company I worked for to gain experience in different fields, create a strong professional foundation and work with people I could respect. Choosing Transformation was the conduit to all of those things – it offers exposure to all areas of Westpac. I’m learning about fields like Change Management and Human Centred Design with great people, and everything we do has an impact on potentially millions of Australians (even better). "

Rianna: "Westpac really appealed to me for three primary reasons; the first would be that the purpose and values of the organisation really resonated with me. Secondly, the support of women internal and external to the organisation – exemplified through strong female leadership and the Ruby Connection Community. Finally, for the organisations willingness to help and support the community – through environmental initiatives and the Westpac choppers.   I chose to apply for the Technology Graduate stream because I’m intrigued by the various applications and developments of technology within the world of finance. As technology becomes ever present within our lives, I think it’s interesting to learn about how technology can be leveraged to provide seamless experiences for both internal and external stakeholders."

westpac group

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program? 

Trina: "Being involved in meaningful projects that has the potential to change and improve Australian lives has been a rewarding part of the graduate experience."

Praneet: "The highlight of the graduate program so far has been meeting the many different and interesting people within Westpac."

Thuy: "The highlight of the Westpac Program is definitely the constant support you receive from your managers and colleagues. As part of the FM&T program, you are assigned a grad manager, mentor, and buddy (who was a grad the year before you) to help you with any questions you may have / guide you through the year."

The program runs from late November to February for 10 weeks and gives you the opportunity to be considered for the graduate program.

You can apply if you’re in the second last (penultimate) year of your degree. You also need to be an Australian or New Zealand Citizen or an Australian Permanent Resident when you apply.

Application Process

Westpac Group


We know you’re busy with life and uni, so we’ve tried to make the process as simple as we can.

Make sure you meet our Eligibility Criteria to apply:

  1. To be eligible for our programs, you must be an Australian or New Zealand Citizen or an Australian Permanent Resident at the time of application.
  2. You can apply for the graduate program when you're in the final year of your degree or if you have completed an Undergraduate or Postgraduate degree within the past two years, at the time of application.

The Application Process

Step 1: Online Application

Your application will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and submit online. Remember to answer the pre-screening questions carefully and truthfully. Finally, you will need to select up to TWO business areas you wish to apply for, and which location is best suited for you. 

You will also need to have these handy: 

  • a PDF or Word version of your resume
  • Academic Transcripts (unofficial transcripts are also fine)

Step 2: Online Assessments

If your application(s) has progressed during our screening process, you'll be invited to complete a series of online assessments. You'll receive an email detailing what you need to do and the specific deadlines - in some cases this may only be 48 hours. So, make sure you keep an eye out on your emails and remember to check your junk/spam folders.

westpac group

Step 3: Video Interview

If you advance to this stage, you'll be invited to complete a short, pre-recorded video interview. This will assist us to get to know more about your motivations as well as your ‘Uncommon Mind’.  Video interviews are not live, but be prepared and remember that you cannot pause, stop or restart the interview. 

Tip: If you have never completed a video interview before, it may be a good idea to get a feel for the process by recording yourself answering interview questions and then watching the replay to gauge your confidence, body language and ability to answer the question being asked.

Step 4: Assessment Centre

Once you have completed all the above steps, the final stage of the selection process is, a virtual assessment centre.  This will involve: 

  1. a behavioural interview,

  3. a group activity 

You will have an opportunity to interact with our business representatives, so maximise this experience by asking questions and find out if this is the right fit for you – it’s time to grill us too! 

Tip: Research is important. Think about why you have applied and what you can bring to the role. It helps to show us your personality.

When will you hear from us?

So what happens now?  The hard part is over so don’t stress if you haven’t heard back from us, we are reviewing your application carefully and giving it a lot of consideration. Once your application has been reviewed, we will reach out to you as soon as possible.

Lachlan

I’m Lachlan, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Business graduate program. I studied a Bachelor of Business (majoring in Marketing) at Western Sydney University and in my spare time I love to play basketball and get in the kitchen to cook for my friends and family.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group.

I’m a part of the Business Division, who are responsible for looking after SME, commercial, agribusiness and private wealth customers across the Westpac Group. We work with a massive variety of customers, from small family-owned businesses to complex commercial entities.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

In my marketing degree, I had developed a keen interest in the role and importance of the customer experience in business. I applied to the Westpac Graduate Program because I was drawn to the significant role that the bank played in the lives of so many Australians. In the business division, we have the opportunity to positively impact the experiences of customers and this is the leading reason for why I chose to join this area.

I also wanted to work for a company that was invested in my development and where I had room to grow professionally. Given my interests in a variety of different areas, it was important to find somewhere where I could explore and expand on my interests and skills. Westpac was the natural choice for me.

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked

So far, I have worked in the Business Chief Transformation Office, which is responsible for delivering innovative change across the division to support our bankers, deliver great experiences for our business customers and help Westpac Group to become a simpler organisation. 

I started my first rotation in the Strategy & Design team, who are responsible for shaping and designing the implementation of the strategic initiatives for the business division.  In this role, I had the opportunity to work on the design of the digital offering for our microbusiness segment, as well as scoping and managing opportunities for cost reduction across the division. This rotation allowed me to engage with teams across the business division in customer engagement, digital, cash management and business lending.

In my current rotation I am working in the Process Simplification team, who support the business division by improving products, processes and systems to make a difference for customers. I am currently responsible for driving a project to design and implement a tool for our commercial bankers to measure and plan their customer acquisition strategy. This project has allowed me to work with our capability, digital and customer engagement teams – I have even had the opportunity to shadow a commercial business banker to better understand their role.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

One of my key projects that I worked on involved examining the existing end-to-end journey for our microbusiness customers. In this project, my team compiled together analyses, data and strategy to make recommendations on a new digital offering to better serve our microbusiness customers; with the project ultimately being presented to the head of our division! I am also part of The Youth Network, where I was involved in the committee that oversaw the brand redesign for the group. 

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

The connections that I have made in the graduate program have been amazing. I have had the opportunity to connect and collaborate with so many unique, driven people so far. Leaders and peers have made themselves available to share their professional journey and advice, as well as showing a genuine interest in my goals and development. There is a great graduate community who put on plenty of events like recreational sport, trivia and social drinks. The graduate program has given me friendships that I will treasure for a long time. 

I also was surprised at the level of influence that I have been granted in my role as a grad. I have worked on projects that have gone directly to the most senior levels of the organisation and been given end-to-end accountability for initiatives that see me engage directly with stakeholders across the business. From my first day, I have been given the opportunity to do work that will have meaningful impacts on the organisation and our customers.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

I love the spirit of community that is present here at Westpac. Whether it is the support that you are offered from your peers and leaders, the passion for helping customers or the culture of community involvement - it is noticeable how the Westpac Group is built on a strong sense of community.

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

Whilst all relevant, I think the value that resonates most with my grad experience has been ‘Helpful’. My teams have been directly responsible for helping both our customers and bankers, such as our work in redesigning and streamlining of the credit decisioning process. My senior leaders and co-workers have lived the ‘Helpful’ value through their support and investment in my development, and I have empowered to employ a service mindset in my approach to work. 

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

In the future, I am looking forward to continuing working in the CTO to help drive Westpac’s strategy to becoming a simpler, stronger bank.  I am also looking forward to engaging in a Jawun secondment, where I can share the skills, I have learnt from my role with Westpac with an Indigenous community organisation.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I’m a Business Division grad, but I love to cook. 

Please describe your business area in three words.

Dynamic. Connected. Customer-Focused.

Please sum up your Grad experience (to date) in three words.

Curious. Challenging. Accountable.

Grace

I’m Grace, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Corporate and Institutional Banking graduate program. 

I studied a Bachelor of Commerce (International) majoring in Finance and International Business at UNSW and in my spare time I love running with my dog and getting active in the gym.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group. 

The Corporate and Institutional Bank (CIB) provides large corporate and institutional players in the market with bespoke debt financing solutions. The coverage and product teams undertake extensive industry analysis to support customers with their business growth objectives. 

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

I applied to the CIB graduate program to explore my interest in financial services and learn from specialised teams and individuals with extensive sector experience. 

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

I am currently rotating through the CIB Business Controls and Monitoring team which helps drive a strong, embedded culture of risk management in the bank. We deal with the identification, reporting and management of incidents within the bank in accordance with policy framework. This has been a huge regulatory focus across all banks in Australia and serves a fundamental role in the integrity of the financial services industry.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

There has been an overall uplift in risk management across the bank. An ongoing project my team has been involved with is maintaining hygiene of our controls and incident remediation. Having this project recognised by senior stakeholders in the business has been rewarding for our team. 

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program? 

The highlight of my graduate program has been making friends within my stream and the wider Westpac Group cohort. I had the opportunity to share my rotation with another graduate and it has been a rewarding experience for both of us to work together and learn more about the business.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

I love the flexibility of work arrangements offered to employees by Westpac Group. Splitting my time working from home and in the office has been crucial to maintaining a balanced lifestyle for me.

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

Leading Change and Performing are values that resonate with me the most as a graduate. Having a fresh perspective in the industry as a young professional has meant that I am encouraged to identify areas where processes can be improved and how we can better deliver outcomes to our clients. 

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

CIB offers many areas/projects for graduates to work across. I am excited to work in the products space and collaborating with stakeholders across the business to provide tailored financing solutions for our clients.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I have always had a passion for arts and literature throughout my high school and tertiary study. One of the greatest benefits of the humanities is understanding society from a critical perspective. Although working in this line of business requires a degree of analytical ability, dealing with the big picture and having clear articulation of the situation at hand is an important skill to have.

Please describe your business area in three words.

Relationship-driven, dynamic and adaptive

Please sum up your Grad experience (to date) in three words.

Fun, impactful and collaborative


westpac group

Kevin

I’m Kevin, former 2019 Summer Intern and now a 2021 Graduate and part of the Corporate and Institutional Banking graduate program. I studied a combined Bachelor of Commerce/Engineering at the University of Sydney and in my spare time I love catching up with friends and playing tennis. 

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group. 

Corporate and Institutional banking essentially helps some of our larger clients in meeting their funding needs to grow and undertake different projects. This can be done in many different ways, tailored to the client’s needs, whether through traditional debt raising, or through products such as receivables finance, asset finance, or structured finance.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

Having previously interned with Westpac in their Business bank, the friendly and collaborative culture of the bank really stood out to me. CIB stood out in particular because it’s a fast-paced, client facing side of the bank, and it deals with a huge range of clients across all industries.

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

I’ve rotated through the healthcare industry coverage team, and with the ongoing pandemic, this was a very exciting industry with plenty of activity in the market. In this team, we perform financial and credit analysis for customers within the healthcare industry, ranging from aged care facilities to medical device companies. Furthermore, we work closely with product teams on transactions, tailoring them to suit the needs of the customers.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

During my rotation in the healthcare coverage team, I was able to work on a deal for a large medical device company that was looking to raise debt for an upcoming project. This was particularly exciting because coming from a biomedical engineering background, we had interacted with and learnt a lot about this company from an engineering design perspective, and this project allowed me to find out how things worked from the funding side.

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

A highlight of the graduate program is being able to meet people from all parts of the business. There are regular grad events, from the standard Friday night drinks, to social events on the weekends, so there’s plenty of opportunities to meet grads from other parts of the bank.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

One of the things I love about Westpac Group is the people I work with, who are incredibly warm and supportive. Something I’ve noticed about Westpac is that everyone is very approachable and happy to have a chat, even if they’re a lot more senior or in a completely different business area.

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why?

The value that resonates with me the most is definitely ‘Helpful’. I really do believe that banking in intrinsically a people business, and helping clients succeed is at the forefront of what we do. Even as a grad, I’ve been able to work on projects where I’m feel like I’m a value add to the team.  

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

Because of COVID, most of the client meetings we’ve had are virtual, and something I’m excited for in the post-Grad Program is being able to have face-to-face meetings with clients. 

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

Although I came from an Engineering background, I’m working in CIB!

Trina

I’m Trina, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Consumer Banking graduate program.

I studied Commerce and Media at UNSW and outside of work I enjoy rock climbing and finding new places to eat.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group.

Consumer Banking involves everything that happens between the customer and the bank. Our objective is to optimise the customer journey process and remove customer pain points along the way.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

I wanted to be part of a community where I can learn and grow with like-minded people with the objective of helping Australians succeed. I joined consumer banking as this area will allow me to do so – it will provide me with the opportunity to better understand customers and in return, improve their overall experience with the bank.

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

My first rotation was in Customer Care. I was exposed to our front-line branch network of bankers and customers. During my time in this rotation, I helped to review the processes we have in place for our customers going through key life moments, worked with strategists to revolutionise our current processes and identify ways in which we can deliver a seamless customer journey experience. 

I am currently doing a product manager rotation within the Everyday Banking Line of Business. Their function is to improve our product offerings for different types of customers and assist them in building their wealth and manage their finances in better ways.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

I drove improving a reporting process within the Customer Care team which has been monumental in assisting the team in improving their efficiency and reducing their workload significantly. 

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

Being involved in meaningful projects that has the potential to change and improve Australian lives has been a rewarding part of the graduate experience.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

All of the people I’ve met have stayed within the Group for a significant amount of time. I believe this speaks about the culture of the Group – the vast range of opportunities offered within the Group means that you will always be able to a grow and continuously challenge yourself!

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

Leading Change resonates with me the most. As grads, we are in a unique position to be able to provide the Group with a fresh perspective that can help improve existing processes. Being given the opportunity to utilise this position has been a very rewarding experience for me. 

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

I’m not sure yet but I am excited to discover more of what the Group has to offer.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I work in consumer banking and I enjoy drawing.

Maren

I’m Maren, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Digital & Marketing Graduate Program. 

“I studied a Bachelor of Commerce (Liberal Studies) at The University of Sydney and on weekends I love to head to the beach for a swim.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group. 

The Digital & Marketing stream is broadly split into a Digital-, and a Marketing division. 

Generally speaking, the Marketing division focuses on understanding consumer behaviour and the market environment in order to enhance customer experience and product/ service offering. There are different teams that feed into this overarching goal and that work closely together to deliver key marketing activities. Core marketing activities include: market research and identifying customer needs & wants, formulating strategies upon these insights, designing product/ service offerings, customer testing, and advertising creation. A big part of what we all do is optimisation – tracking and enhancing our offers, services, advertisements, and overall customer experience. 

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

I first decided to apply to the Westpac Grad program after hearing about the company’s great culture and development opportunities from previous grads. I was eager to kick start my career in an inclusive and stimulating environment, with a company that invests in their employees and the broader community – Westpac ticked all those boxes for me. 
I chose to apply to the Digital & Marketing stream as it best aligned with my interest and background in Marketing and Psychology. 

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

I have just completed my first rotation in the Branding and Advertising team and am about to start my next rotation in Market Research & Design. While working with the Brand and Advertising team I was given the opportunity to co-lead multiple advertising campaigns across Everyday Banking and Housing for both print and digital channels. I was also involved in managing brand partnerships and brand governance.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

One of my favourite projects so far has been the MECCA x Westpac brand partnership. Throughout my time on this project, I managed the distribution of MECCA gift cards to local Westpac branches with the aim of enhancing in-branch customer experience by creating a surprise & delight moment for those opening a new account. I learnt a lot about stakeholder management, brand partnerships and our national branch system.

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program? 

The highlight of the graduate program is the grad cohort – everyone is inclusive and fun. There are lots of opportunities for you to mingle with your fellow grads, whether that be at one of the Graduate Learning Sessions or over a drink after work. You’ll always have someone to talk to and to motivate you.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group? 

I think it’s great how Westpac stands by its values and encourages community involvement. Within my first few months, my team and I took our annual volunteering leave and spent the day working with Little Wings in Bankstown. It was a great opportunity to learn about our partnerships, to give back to the community and also provided a chance to bond with my colleagues.  

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

As a graduate I resonate best with the final HELP value – Performing and Simple. My team always encourage me to challenge the way things are done and to bring in a fresh, objective perspective. It has been a great learning opportunity to audit current processes and identify how things can be simplified to enhance performance.

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

I am excited to learn more about Data Analytics and am eager to deepen my understanding of consumer behaviour.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I am a CDMO Grad but am passionate about sports.

Praneet

I’m Praneet, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Finance & Accounting graduate program. 

I studied a Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Business at the University of Technology Sydney and in my spare time I love playing sport.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group. 

The Finance team spans across various divisions in Westpac and helps to manage the company’s performance and continuously works with different areas to both maintain and grow the business. 

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

I applied to Westpac Group as I felt it was a great place to start my career. The company also provides a great culture to its employees, and it would allow me to make a tangible difference to everyday Australians. I decided on the Finance & Accounting Business area as I am interested in driving the strategic direction of the bank and making meaningful changes. 

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

I am currently in my first rotation which is Finance Program & Change Delivery and it involved working alongside various Finance & Technology teams. The role requires engagement with stakeholders across the business to transfer information but also to ensure requirements and timelines are met for the projects in the bank. 

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

Due to an upcoming deadline, we had graduates from different teams come across to one external area and assisted them in completing their task. For me, this was a very exciting opportunity where I got the chance to work with different people across the business and make a valuable contribution which led to the completion of the project on time.

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

The highlight of the graduate program so far has been meeting the many different and interesting people within Westpac.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

My favourite aspect of the Westpac Group is the people that I have met and their willingness to help.

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

The Ethical value resonates with me as I believe it is extremely important to preface decisions with this in mind because it leads to the best outcome for both the customers and the bank.

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

I am interested in applying my skills to strategy development to drive change in the bank as I believe it will be both engaging and rewarding.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I’m a Finance & Accounting Grad but I am someone who is very physically active.

Thuy

I’m Thuy, former 2019 Summer Intern and now a 2021 Graduate, part of the Financial Markets & Treasury program.

I studied Commerce and Law at Macquarie University. On the weekends I enjoy going out to eat with my family and playing volleyball and frisbee with my friends.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group.

Financial Markets manages Westpac’s relationship with clients from governments to institutions from a finance perspective. FM facilitates the sale and trading of financial products, such as foreign exchange, debt and derivatives. We also provide insightful research to our clients on the future of the Australian economy in our Economics and Strategy teams. 

Treasury manages Westpac’s balance sheet, to ensure the bank has enough money to fund its operations and to keep our deposits safe. Through its funding practices, Treasury is exposed to, and therefore manages, our interest rate risk, FX risk and liquidity risk.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

I applied for FM&T because I wanted to challenge myself and try something new and exciting. 

What I love about the grad program is that you get to rotate through 4 completely different teams, so you are always learning and expanding your skills.  

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

I have rotated through Treasury and Debt Capital Markets (DCM). Both teams are very different but complement each other nicely. 

Treasury funds Westpac’s balance sheet. It can do this in several ways, including onshore and offshore bond issuance. DCM represents clients, such as Westpac Treasury, as well as the government, other banks and corporates, to raise money in the debt market. DCM provides expertise in the bond market such as pricing and investor interest. 

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

The highlight of the Westpac Program is definitely the constant support you receive from your managers and colleagues. As part of the FM&T program, you are assigned a grad manager, mentor, and buddy (who was a grad the year before you) to help you with any questions you may have / guide you through the year.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

The culture/people – everyone is super lovely, happy to chat & answer your questions!

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why?

Helpful – I think one of the most important values to have, especially as a grad, is to be helpful! 

Everyone is looking out for you and your learning during the grad year so it’s important to return the favour and help wherever you can!

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

I can’t wait to settle into my future role at Westpac – even though I’m not sure where that is just yet!

Westpac is well known for celebrating diversity and empowering women – this is something I’d love to be involved with.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I’m in FM&T but I studied law and have no experience in Finance or with trading. 

Please describe your business area in three words.

Dynamic, thought-provoking, exciting

Please sum up your Grad experience (to date) in three words.

Best year yet!

Sahan

I’m Sahan, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Risk graduate program. 

“I studied a Master of Actuarial Practice at Macquarie University and in my spare time I love a balance of exercise, learning, binge watching shows/movies, and finding the best coffee, food, and bars in Sydney.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group.

Being in Risk is a unique role as it impacts every aspect of the organisation at every level.

The role of Risk is to quantify uncertainty, protect the bank against adverse events, and more generally ensure day to day operations are in line with a certain risk appetite and do not impact the financial soundness of the bank in the short and long term.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

After researching the company, the various social initiatives Westpac employees are involved in, and the programs Westpac supports, it was easy to see that Westpac is an organisation which cares about their employees and takes social responsibility very seriously.

The level of support and opportunity to learn seemed vast, and being in the program, I can attest to that.

There’s a lot of investment in your future and you really are given the tools to succeed.

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

Credit Card Fraud Analytics- Working within this team was quite different to anything I studied, and it really challenged my problem-solving skills and ability to make inferences based on data.

There is no right or wrong answer, and you really are required to think creatively to develop solutions to protect the groups customer base in a meaningful way.

During my time here, I learnt about fraud detection and mitigation measures using analytics and contributed to the development of a scam identification and reporting framework.

I was trusted to work with multiple stakeholders, including the Fraud operations team, on the delivery of a project which was an invaluable opportunity to understand what is involved in implementing change.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

Within my current rotation in Consumer Finance Credit, I will be contributing to the review of a model used in the approval process, accounting for different customer and group considerations which promises to be an interesting and challenging experience.

Seeing how data is used in a decisioning model constrained by a set credit policy and various regulations provides great insight into how Risk impacts the primary function of the bank in lending.

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

Being able to learn from and interact with people across numerous Risk divisions.

The program is a great opportunity to learn from others, see what they do, and find your calling while getting to experience different parts of the bank.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

The culture. 

The guidance and advice I’ve received has been invaluable, and I’ve met some incredibly intelligent and funny people who have been extremely welcoming and supportive.

You really are encouraged to bring new ideas to the table and your input is valued.

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

Leading Change

Through my rotations so far, it is evident each team is committed to improving the way things are done to ultimately do the best they can, and be the best at what they do.

A memorable piece of advice given to us during our orientation was when David Burroughs spoke and mentioned having a mindset of (to paraphrase) “what am I going to bring today” as opposed to “what do I have to do today”.

David Stephen also spoke to us and mentioned (to paraphrase again) “no one wakes up wanting to be the second or third best, it’s uninspiring”.

These takeaways align with my mentality of always challenging myself to be the best I can be, and to use my knowledge and skills to add value.

They also speak to the type of environment Westpac aims to cultivate and the type of organisation Westpac aims to be in making it better and better in the interests of achieving its underlying purpose.

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

Through the interactions I’ve had with others and different training sessions I’ve gone through, I’ve realised a role which blends Risk, Economics, and Finance resonates with my interests the most.

There’s a few different divisions I’m curious to explore but at this point, it’s still too early to say.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I’m driven to understand the mechanics of how things work and why something is the way it is.

It leads you to a life of learning and forever questioning why things are the way they are, and how they can be better.

Please describe your business area in three words.

Objective, dynamic, challenging

Please sum up your Grad experience (to date) in three words. 

Supportive, insightful, rewarding

The program really is the best platform to branch out, launch your career, and take charge of where you want to be in the future.

Melissa

I’m Melissa, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Technology graduate program. 

I studied IT and Innovation at UTS, and on the weekends/in my spare time I love taking some time out to go to the gym, experiment in the kitchen, and hang out with my friends and family closest to me.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group. 

Tech covers all things technology within Westpac group. It’s one of Westpac’s biggest business areas, with over 900 teams. Anything you can think of – they probably do it. From network security, to technology risk management, architecture, infrastructure, to agile ways of working, to software and application development; they have a range of functions. Tech is the entire back-end of the bank, keeping Westpac’s systems, applications, and banking services running 24/7.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

Since studying IT, I always knew I wanted to land somewhere in the technology field, I just wasn’t sure where specifically. Westpac’s tech grad role allows their grads to experience four different rotations all over technology. The chance to get a feel for what I might like regardless of my previous experience or prior knowledge (e.g. I can do a rotation in a technical role even if I have no past technical experience) was the main reason I wanted to take on this grad role. Essentially, it’s giving me a chance to figure out what I’d like to do. I was also lucky enough to have worked part-time with Westpac before undertaking this role. Having known the culture and ways of working that Westpac promote, it was an easy decision to want to stay here and develop my career.

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

Currently I’m still in my first rotation with Westpac. This role is based on Agile transformation in the technology sector – more specifically trying to reach all of the tech teams and converting them to an Agile way of working. There are about 900 tech teams and so far we have an adoption rate of about 40%. We work a lot with the teams and engage in an active Agile Community of Practice.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

I’m a part of quite a few Employee Engagement Groups – these are super engaging as there are plenty of sessions and networking events to attend (even virtually!). Soon I’ll be attending the full day Women of Westpac Summit, where there will be speakers and insightful sessions and networking opportunities all in the same day. These are some really amazing opportunities to take part in!

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program? 

The network of people I’ve met is amazing! I was reluctant starting a graduate program being mostly working from home, but I’ve still made invaluable connections and friendships here at Westpac.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

The people I’ve met at Westpac have all been nothing but amazing. Not just in my team and close networks, but everyone I’ve come across! You can quite literally start a conversation with anyone and they’ll be more than happy to have a chat with you (and go for coffee!).

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why?

I would say ‘Performing’ resonates with me most. As a grad, you might think that people will be with you every step of the way to help get your tasks done. While you’re be surrounded by a team of people who are always happy to help where help is needed, this value emphasises the importance of taking accountability for yourself and your decisions. I have learned to not ask for approval every step of the way if it is not necessary, and I am transparent with everything I’m working on (and if I need any help).

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

After working in an Agile transformation team, I would love to get more hands on with Agile ways of working as a Scrum Master. I would love to be able to help teams and people to create a psychologically safe team with a great work/life balance, all while getting the work done.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I’m a tech grad, but I absolutely adore the creative arts and abstract ways of thinking.

Please describe your business area in three words.

Cross-functional, integrated, innovative.

Please sum up your Grad experience (to date) in three words.

Enlightening, supportive, always-learning.

I’ve been having a great time so far as a tech grad and have definitely (in my short time being a grad) got far more of an idea of where I would like to be in the future! I am also constantly learning new things which has been another huge highlight!


westpac group

Rianna

I’m Rianna, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Technology graduate program. 

I studied a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and Master of Biomedical Engineering at UNSW and during the weekends/in my spare time I love to climb (mainly bouldering) both indoors and outdoors.

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group.

Technology is the business area that utilises a broad range of technology to support the different arms of the business. Since technology underpins all our operations, technology has the important role of simplifying and improving existing processes to support customers as well as internal functions within the bank. 

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

Westpac really appealed to me for three primary reasons; the first would be that the purpose and values of the organisation really resonated with me. Secondly, the support of women internal and external to the organisation – exemplified through strong female leadership and the Ruby Connection Community. Finally, for the organisations willingness to help and support the community – through environmental initiatives and the Westpac choppers. 

I chose to apply for the Technology Graduate stream because I’m intrigued by the various applications and developments of technology within the world of finance. As technology becomes ever present within our lives, I think it’s interesting to learn about how technology can be leveraged to provide seamless experiences for both internal and external stakeholders.

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

My current rotation is within the Reporting and Streaming team under the Open Banking Program that falls under Westpac’s Data Platforms. To provide a bit of context, Open Banking is a program that gives consumers the ability to share their banking data with various third parties such as banks and fintechs. During this rotation I have been working with big data in the context of Open Banking – this has involved building data pipelines, completing data analysis, reporting and dashboarding to help the business understand how consumers are using their data. 

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

As part of the Graduate Committee, we have an arm called GradWrap that creates a magazine every few months. I volunteered to become a writer for GradWrap because I enjoy researching and writing pieces that have the intent to intrigue the reader. We recently released our first edition, and I had a great time working on it because I was able to collaborate with a diverse team. We also have the opportunity to write about what we are passionate about, so for my first article I decided to write about social media addiction and the attention economy because I’m intrigued by how human interaction is impacted by technology. 

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program? 

Some of the highlights of the graduate program would have to be the various learning opportunities that I’ve been exposed to. They can take the form of volunteering, through different employee action groups or professionally within your rotation and teams. Another highlight would have to be establishing a good network within the organisation, making friends through the graduate program and learning from each other as well as having mentors who provide guidance as you begin to carve out your career.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group? 

One thing that I love about Westpac would have to be the people and sense of community. This has been a really important aspect of work as I’ve felt very supported throughout the opportunities and projects that I have been engaged in. Because of the supportive network I’ve established, it has also led to many different learning opportunities enabling me to pursue things that have both aided my personal development and enabled me to give back. 

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why?

For me, the value Leading Change most resonates with me. Working within Technology, I think we have the capacity to make tangible change and to leverage tools and technology to advance the way that we support internal and external stakeholders. Applying this value in a personal context, I would say that I’m always willing to take on various opportunities such that I can challenge myself. I believe taking up a range of opportunities helps one to develop in many facets and I’m always looking to learn and gain personal/professional development while giving back in any way that I can. 

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

In the future, I would really love to explore the opportunities available in the Information Security Group as well as the Robotics and Automation team. Working in a financial institution; security and the protection of confidential data and information is critical in everything that we do, and I believe that it is an area that is growing in demand. As for robotics and automation, I think it would be extremely interesting to learn how Westpac leverages machine learning and bots to automate and simplify some of the processes and workflow that exist within the bank. 

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

Although I’ve studied quite a technical degree in engineering and am in the Technology stream, I would say that I’m quite a creative individual. I really enjoy photography and taking/creating videos in my spare time as well as sketching from time to time.

Todd

I’m Todd, a 2021 Graduate and part of the Transformation graduate program. 

“I studied Psychology & Sociology at USYD and on the weekends I lead Australian soldiers as a Lieutenant in the Army Reserves.”

Explain what your business area does or their function within the group.

Transformation takes what we do today and aligns it with the needs of tomorrow. Whether it’s improving existing processes, creating new services, or delivering projects, people in Transformation are agents for innovation and change. We strive to make people’s experience easier, simpler, and better.

Why did you apply for a graduate role at Westpac Group, and why your chosen business area?

I’m not a finance or business guy. I studied Arts and Science. When I reflected on what I wanted at the beginning of my career, I wanted to leverage the size of the company I worked for to gain experience in different fields, create a strong professional foundation and work with people I could respect.

Choosing Transformation was the conduit to all of those things – it offers exposure to all areas of Westpac. I’m learning about fields like Change Management and Human Centred Design with great people, and everything we do has an impact on potentially millions of Australians (even better). 

To date: please provide an overview of the rotation(s) you have completed and, if cross functional, which business areas/groups you have worked in

For my current rotation I’ve been largely working in Strategy & Planning for ATMs, looking at how to transform daily operations, and the broader strategic outcomes we want to achieve in that space. It involves everything from engaging 3rd party vendors and adjacent projects to mapping different customer journeys through our back-of-house IT architecture.

To date: has there been a project you have been involved in that you found particularly exciting or engaging?

Working on the Business Continuity Plan for my area, I was responsible for reviewing and renewing the different plans for when something happens that interferes with core business processes across the Office (like a building fire, floods or a pandemic). We looked at how each area would continue to function during or after the event, with our planning directly impacting hundreds of people during a potential crisis. As a (very) junior employee this was a fantastic experience that gave me ownership over a task and enabled me to engage with key leaders – an experience I wouldn’t normally have.

So far, what has been the highlight of the graduate program?

Definitely the people. Totally the people. Everyone I’ve met so far has been genuinely welcoming. I’ve loved hearing people’s stories, background, motivations and they’ve been extremely generous with advice, not just professional, but in relation to who I want to be, where I want to go and what I want to do.

What is one thing you love about Westpac Group?

It’s belief in Service. Not just in the Group but more broadly. For myself, within 6 weeks of working at Westpac, I was able to take a fortnight of paid leave, no questions asked, to provide relief to flood victims as part of the Army Reserve. That’s just one example and there’s plenty more.

Which of our five values – Helpful, Ethical, Leading Change, Performing and Simple – resonates with you most, in terms of your role as a Westpac Group Grad, and why? 

Definitely Leading Change. Beyond my role in Transformation (which is focused on leading change), as a Grad I represent both the future of the organisation and the culture that’s it working towards.

What role/area/project are you excited to get involved in post-Grad Program?

There are honestly so many things I don’t know right now – across the organisation, in Transformation and even all the skills I want to learn. That in itself is exciting.

With that in mind, my current goal is to be a sponge and absorb as much as I can. Then, once I complete the program, to be part of a team that challenges my thinking, pushes my skills, and works together to create value for everyday people at scale.

What is unique about your ‘Uncommon Mind’?

I work in Transformation but I love history, mythology and ancient things (ruins, old books, and things with a story).

Please describe your business area in three words.

Fast-paced, forward-thinking, people-centred.

Please sum up your Grad experience (to date) in three words.

Engaging, enjoyable, rewarding.

Give it a go, you won’t regret it.

A Day in the Life

Westpac Group


Take a walk in a day in the life of some of our present grads.

A day in the life of Fiona - 2022 Risk Grad at Westpac Group

7:00am

Thursday is my team’s allocated day at the office, so I wake up a bit earlier than usual. I set my alarm for 7:00 but always wake up 5 minutes before it. I think this may be because, on a subconscious level, I feel that the iPhone alarm is truly alarming (pun intended), and I want to get it before it gets me. I quickly check my phone, get ready, put on my makeup, and run out the door to catch the train.

9:00am

I arrive at the Kent St office in Sydney. I walk into the library, greet my team, and choose a seat—we have flexible seating, and I am not yet emotionally attached to a particular spot. I check my emails, messages, and calendar to prepare myself for the day. I notice that a previous Risk Grad, Aly, is also in the office so I send him a message. We decide to catch up and grab my first (and hopefully last) coffee of the day. 

9:30am

When I return to the office with my coffee and breakfast, I speak with an Executive Manager about a task that I have been assigned. I am working on creating a summary of the risk profiles for Quarter 1 using a slide deck and I am waiting to receive validation of my information from a number of relevant stakeholders. Following our discussion, I decide to book a room on the floor. I like to book out a single room so that I can have meetings or complete my tasks without distracting others as well as myself.

11:00am

I am a part of the Graduate Engagement committee as one of the Editors for the Westpac Graduate magazine, Gradient. It’s time to have a meeting with my fellow editor, Matt, and Graduate Committee Chair, Angele. We are setting up a SharePoint site so that we have somewhere to upload our published editions. This way other graduates and Westpac employees can access and read them at any time. 

westpac group

12:00pm

Everyone’s favourite time of the day—lunch time! It’s hard to choose where to eat lunch because there are so many options close to the Kent St building. Usually, I head downstairs with my team to the food court and we all choose our preferred food and sit together. But today, I have a Toastmaster’s meeting hosted by the Westpac Cultural Leadership Toastmasters (WCLTM) Club. I joined the club in the hopes of developing my communication and public speaking skills as well as to share ideas and stories. Before I head to my meeting, I stop by the library to have a chat with my team. Our CRO, Chris, Head of, David, and Senior Managers, Artie and Jack are discussing risk management of third parties. 

westpac group

1:00pm

Within the Graduate Engagement Committee, there is the magazine, but there is also a group of people who organise marketing and events. My fellow editor, Matt, and I have set up a Teams meeting with Annabelle and Sophie from marketing, so that we can organise communication to go out to all the Graduates about Gradient.  We want to inform everyone about the changes we have made to the magazine as well as what they can look forward to in our first edition.

2:00pm

It’s time for my monthly catch-up with my People Leader, Cath. This meeting would usually be in person, however, today we are having our catch-up online. It’s hard to believe it has already been two months since I started my first rotation. In this meeting, we discuss how I am settling into my role and progressing against my Motivate goals. The conversation isn’t always just about work. We also get to know each other by talking about our plans for the weekend, how her boys are doing in school, and any new updates about our life. I love having a People Leader. Cath has really helped launch me into the world of Westpac and it is wonderful to have a mentor to discuss all things work, life, and everything in between. 

3:00pm

I am lucky enough to be able to shadow my Head of, David, by dialing into some of his meetings. A lot of what is being said in the meeting goes straight over my head as it is such high-level content but having exposure to wider teams and what they do is incredibly valuable and interesting for me. This meeting is the first round of monthly meetings with the Assurance team with the purpose of this roundtable being to coordinate Assurance activity and discuss any key callouts. 

4:00pm

I spend the last hour of work at my chosen seat in the library completing some tasks. I notice that I have more capacity and so I reach out to a few people in my team to set up some time to learn more about their work and get to know their roles within the Risk Framework and Second Line of Defence. I still have some time left, so I log online to do some professional development. I found that we use Excel quite frequently and as I only have basic knowledge of Excel’s functions, I decide to brush up on my VLOOKUP and XLOOKUP functions. 

westpac group

5:00pm

It’s officially home time and I have successfully lasted the day with only one coffee. I pack up my things, have a quick chat with whoever is still in the office, and walk towards the train station to head home to my beloved cat, Percy. 

6:00pm

After a quick shower, I cannot get into my pyjamas any faster. I am all about comfort, you see. I then make some dinner and sit down on the couch to watch a show and force my cat to love me. Maybe I’ll watch some Father Brown, Yes Minister, or House of Cards (the British one).  

westpac group

8:00pm

It is my daily routine to make sure that I plant my money tree and find the money rock in Animal Crossing. I’m all about maintaining habits—in Animal Crossing at least. After I am satisfied with the state of my island, I facetime my best friend as we play Mario Kart. For some reason, she is invincible in Mario Kart. Sometimes I think I’m not that competitive, that is until I play Mario Kart. It seems to have that effect on a lot of people.

10:00pm

It’s time for bed now. Well, that’s what I tell myself as I scroll on the phone until 12pm. It’s alright, I still get my eight hours!


A day in the life of David - 2022 Transformation Grad at Westpac Group

6:30am

It’s typically still a bit dark when my alarm rings. It’s a battle to escape the warmth and comfort of my bed in the morning. By the time I’m out of bed, I am getting myself into a presentable manner and going over my belongings I had packed the night before. If the weather is nice, I will opt for my usual walk. Otherwise, if I wish to avoid the impending rain, I will be getting dropped off at the station. Sydney weather can really change in the blink of an eye, I’m sure you know what I mean. Once I’m on the train, I’m usually doing some light reading, listening to music or a podcast recommended by my friends.

westpac group

8:30am 

I arrive at our Kent Street Office in Sydney where my team is situated. It’s always great to build working relationships in person in comparison to using MS Teams. It’s awesome to have the flexibility to work from home or go into the office depending on your preferences and your team’s schedule. After settling in and saying hello to people in my local work area, I’ll go through my inbox to scan for any updates since the day before and look to resolve any issues prior to our team’s daily catchup.

westpac group

10:00am

It’s time for our team’s daily catch up. Each team member provides an update on what they are working on, any challenges they may have come across, what their focus will be for the day and discuss our plan for completing upcoming tasks and deadlines. Today, I will be assisting my manager in various stakeholder meetings to help review and finalise performance targets for the upcoming quarter. This typically involves hopping in and out of meetings, noting where they have made progress and helping the quality of the targets. What I really enjoy in this type of work is the exposure I receive to the strategic aspects of the business and seeing how it influences decisions

westpac group

12:00pm 

Lunch time! I will usually meet up with other graduates or friends outside of work. There is a great sandwich place down the road from the office, and you can’t go wrong with almost anything you order from there. Word of caution, the sandwiches are quite big, value for money!

1:00pm

It’s time to buckle down and start completing any outstanding pieces of work. From the meetings attended today, my key task is to compile all the targets into a single consolidated spreadsheet and ensure key fields are completed to facilitate it’s upload into our systems. Liaising with different team members, I determine the appropriate format of the spreadsheet and begin to transfer content across. I cannot stress the importance of keeping team members in the loop to maximise efficiency and reduce the likelihood of rework.

westpac group

3:00pm

A couple times each week, I schedule catch ups with my graduate buddy or different people in the business including previous year graduates. I love hearing about the projects they are working on, their insights on different areas of the business and especially because Westpac is a large organisation. You don’t know what you don’t know, so the best thing to do is to be curious and ask lots of questions.  

4:30pm

By this time, I will be tying up any loose ends and following up on actions items which needed to be resolved by close of business. It’s a race to finish on some days but, I love a good challenge.

5:00pm

And that’s a wrap, now I’m off to the gym or volleyball practice!

A day in the life of Rachel - 2022 Consumer Grad at Westpac Group

7:30am

Working from home has been a life saver for night-owls like me, so the 7:30am wake-up on days I go into the office can be challenging! I forget how long it takes to properly get ready so I quickly pack my bag and catch the train to Parliament station (Melbourne). 

Fun (or not so fun) fact: the escalators at Parliament station are the longest escalators in the Southern Hemisphere and the most dangerous in Australia. Despite taking them twice a week, I still dread the 90 second trip to the top.  

westpac group

8:45am

I arrive at the Melbourne Office, which I think must have the prettiest exterior in the CBD. The building is attached to Scot’s Church and I find a seat overlooking one of its steeples. Talk about a nice view for the day! 

I open my emails and read that the company has organised a daily $500 tab at one of the local coffee shops on Little Collins St this week to support local businesses recovering from the lockdowns from the past two years. Naturally, I go grab my free coffee right away before the bar tab ends! 

After getting a quick caffeine fix, I check my calendar and the rest of my inbox and create a to-do list for the day. 

westpac group

9:00am

No urgent tasks have come my way overnight, so I decide to tuck into some ongoing work. I am with the Retail Operations team for my current rotation, so most of my work pertains to monitoring the performance of employees working in bank branches across the Group. I have a two-hour period before my first meeting, so I decide to finish off an excel report I have been asked to create to track annual leave balances across my division. Once the report is complete, I call a colleague to go through the report. Getting a second opinion is always appreciated, as the reports I am creating are used by my People Leader to get an understanding of the state’s position and need to be accurate. Luckily, my colleague agrees that the report is accurate and ready to be sent out.

11:00am

Time to catch up with my team at our weekly meeting to discuss emerging issues within each region of the state that need to be focused on. Most of my team works virtually, so this meeting is the only time we really get to connect with each other all together. Naturally, we spend the first ten minutes talking about general life updates and plan a team dinner for next week to celebrate one of our colleagues going on maternity leave. During the meeting, I present the annual leave report that I worked on this morning and I inform my colleagues of the branches that need to remind their employees to take their annual leave. 

westpac group

12:00pm

Time for lunch! I meet up with a fellow consumer graduate and my buddy, who is a graduate from last year, and we grab poke bowls from Fishbowl for lunch. Since I only come into the office once or twice a week, I always get take-away when I’m in as a treat. I’m on a health kick, so the poke bowl from Fishbowl has been my go-to recently. We bring lunch back to the office to eat on the terrace where we run into some friends. The hour goes by really quickly and before I know it, its 1pm and time to get back to work!

westpac group

1:00pm

After responding to some more emails, I start working on another ongoing project. My business unit has recently been joined together with another business unit and there are some teething issues to be ironed out. I have been tasked with creating a handbook for one of the positions on my team that identifies all role deliverables for the position and provides a guide for how to complete each role. The purpose of this handbook is to ensure that all staff know what is required of them in the new business unit and to identify the best processes for completing each role deliverable. Having just started in my rotation two months ago, I’m obviously no expert on the role that I am creating a handbook for, so I often jump on calls with colleagues to get a better idea of what each role deliverable entails and write up what I find to be the best practice. 

westpac group

3:00pm

My People Leader has asked me to join the Division’s Monthly Risk Forum to get some visibility of the different risks that are emerging at a macro (state) level. I take the minutes for the meeting and note action items to be followed up on for next month. 

4:30pm

I type up minutes and action items to send to one of the Regional General Managers who attended the meeting to proof-read before sending out. I find typing up the minutes from this meeting very helpful, as my head is bursting with information by the end of the forum and synthesising my notes helps me to get a better understanding of how what was discussed in the meeting applies to my team and the work I am doing. 

5:30pm

Home time! I take the train home and quickly change into exercise clothes for a 6:30pm Pilates class at my gym. I find that Pilates is a great way to unwind after a day of sitting at my desk! If I don’t exercise after work, I end up just sitting on the couch watching TV, so I make a point of going to the gym during the week. 

Once I get back from Pilates, I finish the night by making tofu and rice with some miso eggplant for dinner and watching (read binging) two episodes of Succession. After two episodes, I decide that I should probably head to bed. I pack my bag for tomorrow and get ready to do it all again tomorrow!

Burning Questions with Westpac Group Grads

Westpac Group


We reached out to a current group of Graduates in the Westpac Group Grad Program from a variety of degree disciplines and within different rotations, to ask them some burning questions, as requested by students.  Thank you to the Westpac Group Grads for their time and effort.  Let’s see what they have to say!

Transformation Grad Program, current rotation in Business Bank Merchant Payments

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed?

The first 6 months were spent going into the office 1 day a week, and wfh the rest. It was really fun going into the office and spending the day with your team and other grads, but it's also nice having the flexibility of wfh (LOVE not having to commute). The grad program has let me try out very different roles (Instructional Designer, project manager, business analyst), in different parts of the bank(financial crime and mortgages, regulatory projects in the chief Transformation office, and now Merchant Payments). Every team I've rotated through has been really supportive and I've developed so many new skills, and the grad cohort has let me grow lots of new and lifelong friendships.

Was your position with the Westpac Group Grad Program as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

I was a Transformation intern at Westpac previously, so I already had an idea of what to expect. The grad program has delivered so many learning and growth opportunities for me, so it really has been more than what I can ask for in a grad program. I think what I didn't realise before is just how big the bank is, and the complexity of the systems and processes in place. It's a bit overwhelming at first to navigate and piece together, but I've now got an understanding on how large organisations operate.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put in and have you worked weekends at all?

I work in projects, so you can have really long or short days, depending on project deadlines. Long days haven't been that frequent, and will only emerge when you're approaching major project deadlines. I always start at 9am and usually finish at 5-5:30pm. The latest I've finished is 8pm. I've never worked on weekends.

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

It depends on the role. Right now I'm learning how to be a business analyst in the Merchant Payments Team, working on a project that replaces all the EFTPOS terminals around Australia with our latest one. My day to day work has involved lots of team meetings to work through our approach and process for replacing the terminals, working directly with customers and bankers to gauge their interest in being a part of our Pilot to get their terminals replaced first, getting feedback on what customers like and don't like about the terminals, learning how our back end systems work to keep all the terminals up and running, and learning about what happens when you pay by tapping your card in store.

Have you worked on any projects at Westpac Group?

I've been on some regulatory projects (e.g. Bankruptcy reporting where Westpac set up a process to identify customers who have declared bankruptcy so they can predict and model how much money needs to be set aside to cover bankruptcy debts in future; DDO - Design and Distribution Obligations - where banks needs to have processes in place to make sure they sell the right products to the right customers e.g. Making sure you don't sell a product to someone it isn't suitable for). Right now I'm on more of a tech/product focused project for replacing all the EFTPOS terminals around Australia.

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate program?

Lots of Westpac Specific systems. More general systems and software include Excel, PowerPoint, MS Project, MS Teams, Jira, Clarity, Confluence, Articulate Suite, Holocentric.

What sort of support are you provided at Westpac Group?

There's a big support network for the grad program. The central grad team helps with general grad things and runs lots of development events, the Transformation coordinators organise our rotations and do fortnightly check ins with us to see how we're going, we're assigned a grad buddy from the year above to guide us through the year as someone who's already had the grad experience, we're assigned a mentor who is a more senior person at the bank, and the grad cohort is very friendly and supportive of each other.

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

I think the biggest thing you need is an openness to learn and try new things. You'll be taught everything you need to know on the job, and everyone comes from such diverse backgrounds, so there isn't a definite skill set you need prior.

What are the best perks or benefits at Westpac Group?

Lots of staff discounts from everything like general shopping to gym memberships to health insurance. You also get benefits if you bank with Westpac e.g. Extra interest for your savings account for you and your friends/family. Flexible working options and a beautiful city office. Great office culture and friendly workplace and grad cohort.

Business Banking Graduate Rotation: Business Controls and Monitoring

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed? 

The first 6 months were challenging, exciting and rewarding! I had the opportunity to learn how to analyse customer financials, conduct industry research, engage with a variety of stakeholders and even sit in on client meetings! Across the various teams I have rotated through, everyone has been extremely supportive and encouraging which really helped make the transition into banking and finance all the more smoother!

Was your position with the Westpac Group Grad Program as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

What suprised me the most is a lot of the work is something that can be learnt on the job. Initially I thought having a finance/commerce degree would confer a greater advantage however, I have since learnt that having a genuine curiosity to continually learn and a passion for what you do is critical to success.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put in and have you worked weekends at all?

The longest I have worked was between 9am-6.30/7pm. The only time I've ever worked on a Saturday was once for about half an hour!

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

The majority of my roles throughout the graduate program have been in the capacity of an Assistant Relationship Manager/Credit Analyst role. In these roles I would work with a Relationship Manager (RM) of a client to obtain their financial information and to develop a better understanding of the client's business operations. I would use various applications to

  1. identify what products the client currently has with Westpac
  2. input the client's financial information and run an assessment on their ability to repay any debt held with the bank.
  3. Generate a report including commentary around financial and industry analysis.
  4. submit the report/deal to a risk management team for further credit analysis. The team will decide whether or not a deal should proceed or if any additional information from the client is required.

Critical to the role is maintaining phone and/or email correspondence with various stakeholders to obtain relevant information to complete various tasks!

Have you worked on any projects at Westpac Group?

I have had the opportunity to work on a regulatory response project in  covenant remediation.

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate program?  

Optimist, TLW, TLA, Customer Business First, Imaging Systems (BBSI & WIRS), Service Online etc.

What sort of support are you provided at Westpac Group?

Support is available in many forms:

Mentorship: you can choose what you want to get out of the relationship e.g. general advice, career guidance etc.

Colleagues: Westpac has a supportive and collaborative work environment where people are always willing to help. 

People Leader: is your go to if you have any issues affecting your ability to work or need any additional support to make things better. Your people leader will provide feedback on your performance at regular intervals and there to help you achieve your goals. 

Employee action groups: enable you to develop your personal interests for example, volunteering and meet like minded individuals with similar interests. There are plenty of EAGs to choose from - highlighting Westpac's emphasis on diversity and inclusion!

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

Strong interpersonal skills,  self motivation and a genuine curiosity to learn are crucial to success. Initially I thought banking/finance specific knowledge would be a greater asset however, I have since realised that many things can be learnt on the job provided you are willing to put in the effort!

What are the best perks or benefits at Westpac Group?

There are great deals or discounts offered on a range of goods and services. From a financial lending perspective there are also great employee deals on particular products!

Risk 

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed? 

The first 6 months were really enjoyable not only from a professional growth perspective but also because I got to meet a lot of new people and make a lot of  friends through the program. In addition the first 6 months were also very challenging but equally rewarding, getting to understand how the bank operates and the intricacies of banking particularly with respect to risk management and its impact on our customers was very interesting, but it did take some time to get used to this new thought process. I have really enjoyed the entirety of the program but I think two standouts have been, the wide variety of work that I have been able to do, right from day 1 there has been no idle moment, where the tasks which I have been working toward, do not make a difference to the bank, its customers and its purpose. The second standout has been the involvement I have had in the graduate committee, particularly the graduate magazine “GradWrap”. Being part of a diverse team of grads who get to pen articles every two months has been an amazing experience not only in terms of the skills I have acquired, but the amazing people I have met.

Was your position with the Westpac Group Grad Program as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

The position of a risk graduate was as I expected both in terms of the program and the work that we do, nothing surprising, as everything was made quite clear during the recruitment process in terms of what we could expect through the program i.e. support, rotations, post program opportunities. In addition, since I have joined these expectations have only been made more clear, so that the grads can truely focus on making the most of the program and developing a wide range of skills useful for their future careers. In terms of the work performed, I had a vague idea of how risk management works in general but I had never been exposed to it, in such a complex manner. It was a bit surprising to see the reliance of data that all risk teams have, even ones that many would deem as the qualitative risks.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put in and have you worked weekends at all?

I have never had to work a weekend. The longest day I have worked, might have been till 8:30pm but that was only a one off.

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

In risk typically you are doing one of three things within your team and with other colleagues in the bank. Regular oversight/control: This varies from team to team and can encompass running daily reports, developing models, writing memos or chairing daily meetings to convey to the wider business, what their risks are looking like. This is crucial, as it gives the business comfort, that the activities they are undertaking whether it be lending, transacting or even working toward tailored client solutions is being done in a controlled manner which is acceptable to the bank and in the interests of customers/stakeholders. These type of periodic oversight tasks usually culminate in either a weekly or monthly update to a wider part of the bank, so they are informed. In addition, there are many teams who do various types of these oversight activities, but could be in various forms, for example one team might perform controls and issues management, where as another team might produce a snapshot of the banks lending risks etc.

Process improvement/ projects/ insight: There is a big emphasis in risk management for us to always be optimising our processes to ensure we are capturing the most accurate information and thus presenting the clearest picture about the banks risk position to our stakeholders. These process improvement tasks usually take a longer time and could involve, designing new processes such as BI dashboards to convert manual reports to automated one. Alternatively it could be working towards a new policy or decisioning tool which could be used by one of our customer serving teams to help them make better decisions.

Working on bank wide projects: Another common task within risk is usually being a representative for risk on a larger project or strategic initiative the bank is working toward, whilst I have not been on any large ones myself, I know it is a very common thing for many risk staff to be a part off. Ensuring that all the initiatives the bank is looking to develop have input from teams who specialise in their respective area i.e. risk, finance, marketing etc.

Overall the work in risk is varied, but as a grad you will typically work on whatever the team is currently doing, some teams do not have daily oversight but do their tasks on a weekly or monthly basis, so in those you will be part of their projects or even get to run some of your own.

Have you worked on any projects at Westpac Group?

During my rotations I have worked on projects such as:

  • Working on data validation tools and process to help teams mitigate key risks around data quality and validation.
  • Working on developing BI dashboards to help teams better understand how they can leverage qualitative data to get a better overview of where the gaps are in their processes and provided clearer paths to action.

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate program?

Like most workplaces, Microsoft office is the base for all tasks, in addition to that teams typically use customised systems which could be internally developed as well. In general most work is done on the office suite.

What sort of support are you provided at Westpac Group?

The support received here is phenomenal, at every stage of the program right from accepting the offer, there has been extensive support provided. In terms of specifics, the support from work is excellent, especially in these trying times, there hasn’t been a moment, where employee safety and concerns haven’t been at the forefront of a decision made by the management. In terms of specifics, the bank offers a wide variety of programs right from vaccine roll out initiatives in recent times, to providing the right resources for you should you need them whatever the need may be.

In addition the wider teams which coordinate the graduate program are absolute aces, every question no matter how big the ask, is dealt with, to ensure that all grads feel welcomed. In terms of support from leaders, this is also really good, direct leaders are always open to hear your concerns and help you reach your goals whatever direction they may take. In addition, the leaders at the bank are always open and approachable - something I find always adds an extra layer of support should you need it.

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

There are many skills which I think would be useful in the role of a graduate such as critical thinking, teamwork, communication, presentation, stakeholder management and many more. However there is one I think is most key and that is communication, but it's not just about writing an email or presenting a powerpoint or an idea, to succeed I think, engaging in active communication is essential. This is where, when you  tailor your communication style to suit the counter-party, sometimes there are people who like to be straight to the point, where as other times there are people who like to have a more casual chat before getting into the business of the day. Hence being able to tailor your communication style from time to time is very helpful in cultivating a positive working relationship.

I knew I would need all the mentioned skills above, but what I didn’t realise was how deeply integrated they were with one another till, I started working, as in university you are really trying to hone them one by one, but at work, often it is their combination which is the most powerful.

What are the best perks or benefits at Westpac Group?

A lot of perks, right from discounts to having in place support for a variety of situations which might need you to take leave. In addition there are a range of perks such as flexible working arrangements, access to other leading offerings to do with wellbeing, and a whole lot more!

Transformation Delivery

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed? 

The first 6 months were more interesting than I expected. It was eye-opening to find out how much you can learn about yourself and a large organisation in such a short amount of time. What I really enjoyed was beginning to contribute to projects that were greater than just my vision, learning new soft and technical skills, and meeting all sorts of new people who would help shape my journey.

Was your position with the Westpac Group Grad Program as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

Each position I've held (depending on rotation) has had more variety than I expected. You may hold a 'Graduate Business Analyst' role for example, but be asked to do far more than just that. Getting exposure to new areas such as Change management and Human Centred Design in addition to my title not only broadened my skill capabilities, but also showed that my leaders cared about my development.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put it and have you worked weekends at all?

The longest day I've worked was 10 hours (including breaks). I have not had to work Saturdays.

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

That depends on the role. In my first rotation I was assisting Business Analysts and a Scrum Master planning out Scrum Team activities, developing master information pages for reference, developing user stories/acceptance criteria for project iterations, and dabbling in some process map development and analysis. My second rotation involved assisting with the analysis of a new initiative that we were testing. This included facilitating meetings to discover the in's and out's of this initiative, drafting key deliverables that demonstrate a change in state from how we operated vs how we will operate with this new initiative, and in addition - developing communications and trainings that make bankers aware and prepared of such change. Currently I am helping to ensure that key objectives, funding and timelines for Transformation Projects align with the over strategic vision of the Bank, whether that be at a quarterly view or short-medium term perspective.

Have you worked on any projects at Westpac Group?

Mortgage Platform Design, Merchant Payments Solution Delivery, Institutional Bank Portfolio Delivery

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate program?

Can you let us know what company you are working for and which area of the business you work in or which rotation you are currently in? 

Financial Markets - Institutional Sales

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed?

My first 6 months have been fantastic - extremely steep learning curve but very supportive and positive environment. I have particularly enjoyed the effort that has been made to give me relevant, useful projects that give me the chance to learn skills I am interested in like coding and data analytics. 

Was your position with the Westpac Group Grad Program as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

I was surprised by how generous people were with their time and the collaborativeness of the environment.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put it and have you worked weekends at all?

The longest day I worked would have been 7:15am to 6:45pm. The lateness is not really expected.
I have never had to work a Saturday or had any contact with work on weekends.

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

This varies from team to team. However, most days will include morning meetings where different teams discuss the markets, any data, news or moves. There will also often be a variety of morning admin tasks to update everyone on overnight news. There will sometimes also be other types of admin tasks that revolve around the bank's financial and regulatory obligations (e.g. updating daily P&L).

There was also a huge focus on communication, organising calls and meetings with experienced traders and salespeople to learn more about their jobs and about financial markets.

Personally my daily work was mostly project work. This included lots of data analytics, market research, and also projects to upgrade or automate existing processes.

I was given a large number of projects like this because I specifically asked for the opportunity to obtain these skills, so I really appreciated that.

Have you worked on any projects at Westpac Group?

I asked for opportunities to learn coding and data analysis, so some projects I was given were:

  • creating a process to clean and format a raw dataset of transaction data
  • building a pricing and risk calculator for structured securities
  • building a pricing and risk calculator for swaps and interest rate derivatives
  • researching cross-border relative value of bank bonds
  • researching historical currency moves and correlations
  • researching leading indicators for economic data
  • automating data importation and visualisation
  • speaking to team members to ensure data is integrated into their daily processes

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate program?

  • Excel (and full MS suite, Outlook, Teams, SharePoint etc)
  • Python
  • Tableau
  • QlikSense
  • Murex
  • Tradeweb
  • Yieldbroker

What sort of support are you provided at Westpac Group?

I get substantial support. Every grad at Westpac has a buddy from the previous year's grad cohort, a mentor from within the business, two grad managers for the cohort, their own grad manager for the year, and one or two people leaders in each team they rotate through. There are lots of people I can reach out to at any time if I need help.

The company has also been extremely communicative and focused on employee safety during COVID, especially with working from home arrangements, but also with vaccinations and sick leave.

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

I think the most important skill anyone needs in this role is the curiosity and persistence to learn new skills. All the skills associated with the role can be learned by anyone with the right mentality, because the environment is so supportive to learning those skills.

I thought perhaps I would need more background in finance, maths or coding, but honestly that hasn't really been the case at all. If anything, the critical thinking approach I learned in my arts degree has come in handy a lot.

What are the best perks or benefits at Westpac Group?

Westpac is extremely flexible and supportive to workers which is a huge perk. It provides very good leave and extremely well priced employee banking discounts. It can pay for education and learning opportunities, and has overseas offices in major capitals. Westpac also gave me relocation assistance to move from Adelaide to Sydney.

Bachelor of Commerce (Management)

Can you let us know what company you are working for and which area of the business you work in or which rotation you are currently in? 

I am in the wealth management stream and am current rotating through the product team in private wealth.

What was the first 6 months like?  What have you really enjoyed? 

The first 6 months have provided great exposure to different areas of the business within my stream. So far, I have worked in life insurance, BT investment solutions and private wealth with each team being a great learning experience. I have most enjoyed the people and culture, everyone has been extremely welcoming and generous with their time.

Was your position with the Westpac Group Grad Program as you expected it to be? Did anything take you by surprise?

I didn't really have any expectations going in but I've definitely been surprised by how willing to help everyone is which has been particularly valuable as we've mostly been working from home in lockdown.

Everyone is keen on maintaining work/life balance, with that in mind what is the longest day you have put it and have you worked weekends at all?

The longest days I've worked were probably around 10-11 hours but that's definitely been rare and not an expectation from the team as I've found as a graduate there is a lot of emphasis on work-life balance. Haven't had to work any Saturday's or weekends!

On a day to day basis, what do you work on?

In my current team, the work has mainly been focussed around BAU (business as usual) tasks. These are tasks that are completed regularly each week as part of the usual team procedures. These have involved communicating with clients, compiling data and reviewing research. Aside from this, in each of the team's I have rotated through I've had the opportunity to complete a project either on my own or with the other graduates which has been great to research and work on more autonomously when not completing other team related tasks. Overall, my day would usually consist of a combination of BAU tasks, project work and attending meetings with my team.

Have you worked on any projects at Westpac Group?

In my first rotation, I worked on a project with two other graduates which was looking at where improvements could be made to increase efficiencies between two adjacent teams in the life insurance business. During my second rotation, I worked on my own personal project which was a written communication piece that was shared within the business. This was great as I was able to work autonomously to research and present a piece of work on a topic I am very passionate about. In my current team, I am in the process of working on a project for a consolidation and refresh of our BAU processes and improving efficiencies in the way these tasks are presented to new starters in our team to ensure they are comprehensive.

What systems do you use for your role in the graduate program?

During my first rotation, we used so many different systems but these were specific to the life insurance call centre we were working in and not necessarily used day to day in other parts of the business. Day to day, I use a lot of excel, powerpoint, word and outlook. We mostly use teams to communicate and Atlassian systems such as Jira/Confluence to organise our workloads.

What sort of support are you provided at Westpac Group?

As grads we have a lot of resources available to us. We are allocated a buddy when we start the program who is a previous grad from the last cohort. We also have a grad coordinator who tries to answer day to day questions or any queries with rotations. The company in general and our people leaders are really supportive. To support us during lockdown, we also got a lifestyle and wellbeing day which could be taken to ensure we were getting a balance with work during lockdown.

What skills do you think you need to succeed in your role and do they differ from what you envisioned?

I think communication skills are extremely important, even more so when working remotely as you need to be clear with what you are doing and what you need help with. My particular rotations haven't necessitated any specific technical skills although a good understanding of all Microsoft programs is important. Taking initiative is important and being open to experiences even if you don't know if you will be suited to them will set you up to make the most of opportunities which will best set you up for success in the program.

What are the best perks or benefits at Westpac Group?

The organisation offers generous leave for employees, including wellbeing and lifestyle days which can be taken to reset and take time for work life balance. My experience has also been that it's pretty flexible in terms of work hours, as long as you get all your work done there has never been any issues around working different hours. The Barangaroo office (where I've worked) is really nice and in a great area for getting nice lunches and after work drinks. Before lockdown, we also went out for team lunches which was really good too. However, the best perk for me has been the other grads in my stream, we were connected with each other via our grad coordinator from the beginning of the program and we have all become really close friends since which gives you a great support network throughout the program.

Jawun is a not for profit organisation co-founded by Westpac in 2001. Jawun partners with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations in 12 regions across Australia, providing them with skilled secondees from Jawun’s 28 corporate and government partners – including Westpac Group.

Since 2001, over 950 Westpac Group employees have taken part in Jawun secondments and success is shared both ways. The Indigenous organisations benefit from the professional skills provided by the corporate secondees, while our employees benefit from an immersive experience that builds their leadership and understanding of Indigenous cultures and ways of doing business.

Gender Equality

Gender Equality diversity icon

Westpac Group


At Westpac Group we are committed to creating a workplace that supports long-lasting and meaningful careers for everyone.

Our gender equality journey started early, with Westpac being the first company in Australia to introduce paid parental leave in 1995, and partner leave 3 years later. In 2010 we were the first private-sector company to pay superannuation on unpaid parental leave and in 2016 the first Australian bank to recognise paid parental leave and return-to-work income in home lending decisions.

We’ve continued to make progress – setting and achieving gender targets for our leadership ranks, creating a strong culture of flexibility and building financial literacy for women through Ruby Connection. We have also introduced a range of dedicated policies and support for parents, carers, people transitioning to their affirmed gender and people experiencing domestic and family violence.

We were the first bank to publicly commit to the aspirational target of having 50% of our leadership roles held by women, which we first achieved in 2017 and have maintained since. 

Our commitment to gender equality continues through our FY21 gender objectives to have: 

  • Maintain 50% Women in Leadership
  • At least 40% women in our Senior Executive1 population
  • At least 40% women on our Board of Directors
  • Maintain no less than 50% women in our workforce generally

At Westpac Group we are committed to creating a workplace that supports long-lasting and meaningful careers for everyone. Through Westpac Group’s Reconciliation Action Plan we are committed to creating employment pathways for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

We know that part of building a better future for all Australians is to support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people to prosper and grow. Westpac Group have a dedicated Indigenous Careers Team to help with:

  • Creating as many employment pathways as possible
  • Supporting the career development of Indigenous employees, interns and trainees
  • Making sure that we retain great Indigenous talent through career development opportunities (e.g.: mentoring programs, short-term secondments and leadership courses)

School-based Traineeships

If you’re still at school and looking to gain experience in the financial services industry, a School-based Traineeship could be the right program for you. Gain paid part-time employment during years 11 and 12 and receive training that counts towards your HSC or equivalent. You’ll come away with practical workplace skills in the banking and finance sector, and a nationally accredited qualification.

Full-time Traineeships

If you’ve finished school and are looking to gain experience in the financial services industry, a Full-Time Traineeship could be the right program for you. Completing the traineeship means you’ll get a nationally accredited qualification along with paid employment. To qualify you’ll need to have had previous work experience, but it doesn’t have to be relevant to the financial services industry.

When you complete our programs you’ll have the possibility to further your qualifications or apply for a permanent role within Westpac Group.

It is this distinctive mix that enables us to make extraordinary results happen for our customers.

We know that greater diversity in leadership and in the workforce helps drive better decision-making and business performance.
