ASIC is Australia's corporate, markets, financial services and consumer credit regulator.
At ASIC, there's good reason for everything we do: every law we regulate, every action we take, every interaction we have with industry and consumers.

Where you'll be working
Our program focuses on developing both your technical and professional skills. It's a process that starts in your first year and continues throughout your career. Our aim is to develop your talents through a balance of on-the-job training, structured development programs and rotations.
You can expect great variety in what you do. Meet Jonathan, one of our graduates with a degree in Economics & Finance…
“I love the variety of work ASIC offers. I have had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects from policy development, undertaking compliance assessments of licensee and financial advisers, developing new tools for ASIC using data analytics and statistical techniques and reporting on the domestic and global economy, just to name a few.”
From your first day, you will be involved in meaningful work which may include reports of misconduct, surveillances, investigations, analysing intelligence, data analytics, consumer research or even supporting new technologies.
You'll also find mentors on hand for each rotation, support from your team and a buddy from last year's program to help you. You'll be working in a team environment, alongside experienced professionals who are committed to helping you develop your knowledge and skills. Our professional networks along with our Communities of Practice will also support your learning and development.
Opportunities to learn and grow are the key to a long and rewarding career. At ASIC, you'll find you can expand your skills in an organisation that is committed to your ongoing professional development.
