Program Overview

People. They are the heart of Westpac Group. And our Human Resources Business Partners and Advisors and Specialists work strategically across all business areas to design and deliver a first class people and culture strategy.

Our Specialists span disciplines such as HR Analytics, Culture & Leadership, Talent Acquisition, Learning & Development, Inclusion & Diversity, Performance & Reward, Employee Relations and Health, Safety & Wellbeing. With unique specialist teams covering such a wide range of expertise, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

How it works

As a Grad within Human Resources you’ll have the opportunity to rotate through different teams to build your experience and grow your network. A Grad will complete three rotations across the HR business that align with their interests and skill set, while giving them a truly diverse experience across the multitude of roles that are available in Human Resources.

In the past, our Grads’ exposure has ranged from supporting employees with HR policy advice to helping launch an employee self-service portal; contributing to our HR teams in a meaningful way, such as by assisting with projects and work output; contributing to the research, strategy and initiatives behind our 2017 vision to developing websites, social media strategies and brand campaigns to attract new employees and build engagement with existing employees; and shadowing senior leaders, which provided the opportunity to participate in associated workshops, training and summits. Participating in extra-curricular groups such as The Youth Network and community initiatives, including graduate committees, is also all part of the Grad experience.
