Not many companies can claim a history as long as Westpac Group’s. In 2017 we celebrated 200 years. But no other culture has a history as long as Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We acknowledge our responsibility in assisting Australia’s first peoples in building their lives based on traditions, memories, culture, hope and aspiration. We are committed to creating a better future for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. By recognising the past and investing in the future we can help to shape a nation in which Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians share social and financial equity. Our goal is to build a diverse workforce of amazing talent which means that when you work with us, you can be sure we’ll commit ourselves to helping you take your career as far as possible. We offer a series of opportunities for talented Indigenous Australians depending on their career stage and aspirations. Whether you join us as a graduate, intern or a trainee we are here to help you succeed by providing support and structured development you need at every stop.
And we must be doing it right When you work with us, you’ll be working with a ground-breaking company that’s been awarded for being a great employer as much as it’s been recognised for its sustainability and community work – not a bad combination.
