What our graduates have to say

I studied a Bachelor of Business (Finance) at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane and applied for this program because I wanted a diverse range of rotations and exposure across the organisation.  Since moving to Sydney, you can find me enjoying its greenspaces or dining out with friends.

Westpac’s Group Treasury program did not disappoint! I’ve had exposure to liquidity strategy, structured funding, capital execution and global funding. Although the areas are very different, they flowed from one to the other, and my appreciation for treasury's role in the bank grew.

The benefit of being a graduate is that you get to ask as many questions as you want, and everyone is eager to answer, and the benefit of Group Treasury is that it doesn’t end with the program. Questioning and challenging the purpose of our work has been at the core of every team I’ve been a part of and I’m excited to continue my learning in my permanent role.

Elouise, 2023 Group Treasury Graduate


I studied a Bachelor of Economics (majoring in Economics and Finance) at the University of Sydney. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with friends and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

I applied for Westpac’s Graduate Program because of Westpac’s standing as an Australian major bank, along with Group Treasury being offered as a stream for the very first time. I felt that this Program and organisation would be the right place to learn, develop, and challenge myself.

Even though it can be daunting joining four teams a year, the exposure has been unparalleled. The rotations, and the program itself, has provided a really well-rounded view of what Group Treasury does and how this function impacts other areas of the bank!
