What our graduates have to say
After completing architectural studies at UNSW, I worked for a couple of years in that industry before deciding to pursue my interest in Digital by joining the Westpac Digital Grad program. Whilst at first glance architecture and Digital seem quite different, there are a lot of aspects around design principles, thought processes and flows that are very similar.
I have found the Westpac Digital Grad program fantastic so far. There are 3 four-month rotations structured to give Grads a feel for a variety of areas and multiple teams in the business so as to find which areas we are most interested in.
In one of my rotations my role was a Business Analyst in the Digital Service Request team which is tasked with digitising forms. I have been fascinated to learn about the complexities and many moving parts that need consideration, whilst being given responsibility for tasks across a variety of different projects that my team is working on. I really appreciate seeing how the role fits into the wider Digital team and organisation.
I have found the culture in the Digital team to be extremely welcoming, super friendly and really collaborative. Everyone in the team is so keen to share their knowledge and get me involved in their work.
The Grad program has an amazing support structure, a buddy system with past Digital Grads, a mentor, workshops and training sessions. The Digital Grad program also has its own unique initiatives such as a speed networking event, a hackathon, workshops, training sessions and regular check ins with the Digital Talent Program cohort. If that is not enough, there are also a series of unofficial social events organised by the great community of current and past Digital Grads.
