Don’t just believe us, hear from our recent graduate. Michael, Corporate & Institutional Banking Graduate Degree Studied: Bachelor of Commerce and International Business What rotations did you experience as part of the program? During one of my rotations I helped out on a natural resources transaction to structure and arrange debt for a major player in the industry, which required me to take on responsibility and liaise with multiple teams across the business to deliver a positive outcome for the client. This transaction eventuated as one of the biggest deals for Corporate & Institutional Banking in 2018 and resulted in us winning a “One Team” award. What is one thing you love about Westpac? Westpac’s truly inclusive culture is what sets the bank apart; our people genuinely cares about our clients and each other and this inspires me to come to work every day to go above and beyond to make a difference.
