Our Graduate Program aims to attract, develop and retain talented individuals who want to embark on a rewarding career in the financial services industry.
All graduates undertake an 18-month structured program, including rotations within their ANZ division or function. Graduates are provided with a coach, to help them transition to working at ANZ, build networks, improve their influencing skills and develop their career.
Personal and professional development is a significant component of our graduate program. It focuses on developing skills and capabilities critical to long-term business success, including communication, people and project management, and career management. Program participants also undertake divisional development, which involves specific skills and capabilities relevant to their roles.
Our Graduate Program is committed to building diversity and inclusion, by recruiting students from Australian and New Zealand Indigenous communities and people with disabilities. Students are educated on the benefits of working for a large global corporation and are supported in their applications, CV and interview preparation.
