DO WORK THAT MATTERS

We provide financial support to our Board, our shareholders and work closely with all areas of CommBank and help set our overall business strategy. We are responsible for providing performance management, advice and governance. We advise each business unit about project management and also provide services such as consulting, taxation advice, decision support, management information system design and competitor analysis.
Financial Services at CommBank includes Group Audit, Group Finance, Group Treasury, Institutional Banking & Markets Finance, Retail Banking Services Finance, Business & Private Banking Finance and Enterprise Service Finance. So, whether you wish to focus on financial or management accounting, support a particular area of our business, providing daily P&Ls for trading businesses, monthly performance reporting for product and client segments, budgeting, forecasting and ad hoc special reviews for both onshore and offshore locations, we can offer a vast array of rotation opportunities. 
As a team we're responsible for the world-leading application of technology and operations across every aspect of CommBank; from innovative product platforms for our customers, to essential tools within our business. 

WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOU

We are looking for people who love numbers. Financial Services teams sit as the backbone to all our business units. We're looking for someone who is a strong communicator, critical thinker, and has a consultative approach. 

WE INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE

When you join our Graduate Program, you join as a full-time permanent employee. So you know we're invested in you to transition from full-time study to full-time life!

It centres around 4 key elements:

  • Develop: Participate in market-leading training to develop your technical and soft skills. This will help with the transition to full-time work from university and ensure you excel in your immediate and future roles.
  • Network: Build networks and friendships through unparalleled access to senior leaders, project leads and program sponsors, enhancing your personal and business profile.
  • Contribute: Give back to the community through graduate initiatives, driving positive change across our organisation and improving the wellbeing of our graduate cohort.

This 18 month structured Program starting on 15 February 2021, includes three six-month rotations in our core business areas with a fourth rotation of your preference while you are supported in finding your permanent placement within the Financial Services team. In Financial Services, your rotations will have a focus on business partnering with our business units, performance & analytics to provide insights for profitable growth and safeguarding the group in our operational risk and control teams.

You will receive extensive training and development including a comprehensive orientation at the beginning of your program and ongoing masterclass and tailored training through each rotation. We provide financial support to all Financial Services graduates to complete their CA Certifications.
