Former Intern Testimonial:

Kevin, 2019 CIB Summer Intern, now 2021 Graduate

westpac group

“I studied a combined Bachelor of Commerce/Science at the University of Sydney and, in my spare time, I love catching up with friends and playing tennis. 

I was a CIB Summer Intern, but I’m also from an Engineering background!

I chose to apply to Westpac Group’s Summer Intern Program due to the friendly and collaborative culture of the bank: this really stood out to me. Everyone is very approachable and happy to have a chat, regardless of their title and business area. 

I was attracted to CIB 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”.
