At Westpac we’re committed not just to industry leading customer service, but to a sustainable future and since we began as a bank we’ve been rolling up our sleeves in pursuit of such. Through our 2020 Sustainability Strategy, we are challenging ourselves to create the most meaningful economic, social and environmental impact in the areas of most concern to our stakeholders. This has sparked numerous initiatives such as our Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter or Mathspace which enables Australians the opportunity to boost their maths skills.
As a graduate at Westpac, you’ll have an abundant number of opportunities to ingratiate yourself in our remarkable sustainability and inclusion projects such as those mentioned.
Here, diversity isn’t just a buzz word, we’ve created an environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work regardless of gender, cultural identity, age, sexual preference, work style or whether you identify as having a disability. We believe that an inclusive workforce builds the foundation for innovation. For us, however, it’s about more than visible differences – it’s about the different experiences, capabilities, insights and perspectives our people bring to work with them every day.
At Westpac Group we encourage our employees to play a role in advocating and championing diversity in our business by getting involved in Employee action group supporting woman in the workplace, LGBTI employee's, indigenous employee's and employee's with disabilities.
