Westpac Group seek
talent and ambitious
students each year
to join a summer
internship program

Our paid ten-week program is a great way to explore a career with Westpac Group and give you a taste of what it is like to work for us. It is designed to ensure that our interns get an insight into the banking and finance industry – allowing you to make an informed career decision, whichever business area you choose. Plus, what could be more rewarding than the possibility to return to university with your graduate job offer in hand?


We welcome applications from university students in their penultimate year of an undergraduate or post graduate degree and ask that all applicants hold Australian permanent residency or citizenship. The program runs for 10 weeks from December to February and talented interns will also have the opportunity to be considered for the Graduate Program.


Applications for 2017 Summer Internships open in July 2017.
