Our paid ten-week program is a great way to explore a career with Westpac Group and give you a taste of what is like to work for us. It is designed to ensure that our interns get an insight into the diverse opportunities at Westpac Group – allowing you to make an informed career decision.

The program runs for 10 weeks from late November to February and talented interns will also have the opportunity to be considered for the Graduate Program.

You can apply for the Intern Program when you're in the penultimate (second last) year of your degree.
