Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Group

Opportunities are linked to the Bank’s workforce planning and will vary, however, we typically choose from the agribusiness, business, finance, mathematics, technology and engineering disciplines. For our agribusiness graduate opportunities, please see Rural Bank.

What are we looking for?

Real people, not bots. We respect lives lived, not spectated. By all means, we respect a great academic transcript but we are not blinded by it. We like battle scars.

What does the application process look like?

In brief, it's a cover letter, CV and cognitive ability test at the first junction. Should you progress, an assessment centre and interview await.

What will I do?

There is no simple answer to that. You may be entrusted to draft reporting for the Credit Risk Committee. Or develop risk models in stress testing. Maybe work on a new product. And that’s just in probation.

Think of this as a 2-yr apprenticeship. We are investing in potential and thus expect some errors – that’s part of learning. Yes, we have expectations of absolute commitment but not that 11-hr day stuff with weekend top-ups we hear about. Why burn you out – so you want to leave post-program? Doesn’t make sense to us and neither should it to you.

Office Work Environment
  • The culture. Very friendly and welcoming place to work.
  • Opportunities presented to a new graduate, such a presenting in front of the Board Risk Committee *I've only been in the company for 6 months and have already met a huge number of employees from all parts of the bank, including the CFO, CRO and CEO.
  • Friendly & approachable staff. Opinions are heard. Good corporate culture. Work-life balance.
  • There are lots of opportunities for personal growth and career development, and there is great staff morale. It's great to work for an employer who genuinely cares about its people and the communities in which we operate.
  • Flexible working arrangements, an inclusive culture and one where everyone treats you the same (even when I was a graduate).
  • Lack of structure in the graduate program.
  • While 80/90% of the time there is a clear task at hand, there have been times (particularly at the end of a rotation) where I have very little to do.
  • Behind in technology.
  • Business unit silos.
  • Not international like other major banks.
