Who we want

Students from all disciplines are welcome to apply for the CIB Summer Intern Program. At Westpac Group, we recognise that a finance/analytical background is preferred but not necessary to join our team. If you have the intellectual curiosity and drive to learn, we have the training infrastructure to foster and develop the skills you need.

What our intern alumni have to say

“I studied a Bachelor or Commerce (liberal studies) majoring in Finance and Psychology at Sydney University. In my spare time I love to dance, exercise and spend time with my friends trying new restaurants. 

I previously completed the internship program and worked on several projects as a contractor before I joined the grad program. 

I was fortunate enough to join a very social, warm, and supportive team which set the tone for the rest of my journey. I learnt a lot through challenging work but also had heaps of fun bonding with the team outside the office which was the best part!

I was attracted to the level of support, training and exposure I would receive in a large institution like Westpac. There are so many different divisions to explore and there is a wealth of learning resources and opportunities for junior people.”

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.
