2021 Grad Testimonial:

Grace, 2021 CIB Graduate

westpac group

“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. 

I may be a CIB Grad, but I also have a passion for arts and literature!

I was attracted to Westpac Group’s Graduate program as I love the flexibility of work arrangements offered to all our employees. Splitting my time working from home and in the office has been crucial to maintaining a balanced lifestyle for me. 

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”.
