What our Summer Interns have to say
“I studied Commerce and Law at Macquarie University and, in my spare time, I enjoy going out to eat with my family and playing volleyball and frisbee with my friends.
I may be a Financial Markets & Treasury grad, but I’m also interested in astronomy!
Westpac Group is known for celebrating diversity and empowering women – this is something that attracted me to apply to work here.
I applied for the Financial Markets & Treasury program in particular because I wanted to challenge myself and try something new and exciting."

The application process
Step 1: Online Application
Your application will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and submit online. Remember to answer the pre-screening questions carefully and truthfully. Finally, you will need to select up to TWO business areas you wish to apply for, and which location is best suited for you.
You will also need to have these handy:
- a PDF or Word version of your resume
- Academic Transcripts (unofficial transcripts are also fine)
Some people think because we’re a bank we only recruit candidates with Commerce/Finance degrees. We encourage graduates and interns from all disciplines to consider our programs if they have a strong interest and passion for that business area. Please keep in mind, it’s not all about your degree. We're looking to find well-rounded graduates whose values align to those of Westpac Group, are involved in the community, participate in extra-curricular activities and have some work experience.
