Our Graduate Program
Designed to attract the best and brightest, our Graduate Program is a challenging and rewarding way to kick-start a long-term career with us.   

How does our Graduate Program work?
You’ll start with us in February, but the length of your Program varies based on which business area you choose.

You’ll begin your CommBank career with an orientation conference in Sydney, where you’ll hear from senior leaders and renowned speakers, immerse yourself in all things CommBank, and network with fellow graduates from all parts of our business around the world.  You’ll then spend time settling into your business area and meeting the business leaders and sponsors who’ll support you throughout your program.

Throughout your first year we provide loads of support to help you to maximize your experience. We help you identify your individual focus areas, and provide you with tailored development sessions on-demand or in person.  Our full graduate cohort will come together again in Sydney mid-year for an intensive development event to enhance our capabilities even further.  Along the way you’ll be supported through countless opportunities to learn, grow and showcase your talent within a structured, fast-paced and engaging program.

Within your business area you’ll complete a rotational program. Rotations help you to learn about different parts of your business area, build more connections, further develop skills, and decide where you want to take your career next.

At the conclusion of your business area’s graduate program, you’ll be supported to find a role which best suits your capabilities and interests. Ideally you’ll have built relationships and tried a number of experiences throughout your Graduate Program to support you in this process.
