Banking, Insurance & Finance

For more than 160 years we’ve been helping our customers with their money and today, we have more than 33,000 colleagues serving 9 million customers at more than 900 locations across Australia, New Zealand and around the world. 

While money is important, we know that it’s not what matters most. It’s the connections we share and the relationships we build. It’s the more than money experiences that really matter. That’s why our business is founded on a commitment to serve customers well and help our communities prosper. A commitment that motivates our colleagues to provide exceptional customer service by putting our customers’ needs first every time. 

Through investment in our colleagues and customers, our ambition is to be: 

+ Safe: By protecting customers and colleagues through financial and operational resilience. 

+ Easy: By creating a simpler, more seamless and digital bank that gets things done faster. 

+ Relationship-led: By building on our market-leading expertise, data and insights to foster great relationships with our customers and community. 

+ Long term: By delivering sustainable outcomes for our customers, colleagues and community. 

As Australia’s largest business bank, we work with small, medium and large businesses. We’re there to support our customers through every stage of their business needs. We also fund essential infrastructure in our communities (like schools, hospitals and roads) in a way that’s responsible, inclusive and innovative.

Driving Gender Equality at NAB

As Australia’s largest business bank, we work with small, medium and large businesses. We’re there from the beginning to support them through every stage of the business lifecycle.

We fund some of the most important infrastructure in our communities – including\ schools, hospitals and roads. And we do it in a way that’s responsible, inclusive and innovative.

For over 160 years, we’ve been helping our customers with their money. Today, we have more than 30,000

people serving 9,000,000 customers – over half of which are female.

Life’s about more than money

Over time, we’ve learned a thing or two about helping our customers make the most of their money. And while money is important, it’s not what matters most. It’s the connections we share and the relationships we build. And that’s why we do things a little differently.

A career at NAB is about more than money. No matter which stage of your career or where your life is at, our women all have one thing in common – our support in enabling them to perform and reach their full potential. We respect your abilities, intentions, needs and aspirations, which means you can be yourself and realise your potential. We take pride in being a company that supports people for who they are, no matter how they identify.

Driving equality at NAB

We’re lucky to have incredibly talented, driven and inspiring women working for us here at NAB. But hiring women has never been about ‘making up the numbers’. It’s been about finding the right people for the right roles and making sure the women who work for us have the support and encouragement to reach their full potential.

We’re passionate about investing in our employee’s future success – both inside and outside of NAB. Employees are given access to leading-edge programs, courses, tools, innovative technologies and communities to grow their career.

You’ll also have access to a large number of exclusive employee benefits that’ll support you both personally and professionally – from flexible working, to supportive leave practices and financial and health care benefits that will see you set yourself up for future success. And as a Workplace Gender Equality Agency Employer of Choice for Gender Equality, and a signatory to the UN Women’s Empowerment Principles, we’re proud of our ongoing commitment to gender equality.

We take pride in being a company that celebrates people for who they are, no matter how they identify. At NAB we advocate and celebrate people of diverse sexes, sexualities and gender identities, and strive to build inclusive spaces for our employees and customers.

Out and Proud

We’re creating a culture where our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and other gender and sexual diversities (LGBTI+) employees aren’t defined by their sexual orientation or their gender identity and we’ve always taken pride in being a company that empowers, celebrates, and uplifts LGBTI+ employees and communities.

In 2020 we maintained our Gold Employer Status in the Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI), the national benchmark on LGBTI+ workplaces in Australia. At the 2020 AWEI awards, we were also recognised as a top-three finalist in the area of trans and gender diverse achievements.

We’re proud to have inclusive people policies ranging from LGBTI+ inclusive leave arrangements, and all our leave policies cover families of all different constructs. NAB also provides gender affirmation leave and support as well as access to employee assistance programs and access to financial products which are inclusive to all LGBTI+ employees and their families.

LGBTI+ awareness training is available to employees, ensuring we continue to provide an inclusive workplace for our employees and understand

My Traineeship at NAB 


Tell us about your NAB journey? 

I started my traineeship in 2018 and completed it in December 2020. I was based in Adelaide and worked in 2 different branches during this time. This allowed me to work under different conditions, with different people as well as serving different customers. I then worked within the People and Culture Team as a Summer Intern with the Early Careers Team. I have now transitioned into a casual branch role while I complete my university studies. 

What advice would you give? 

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It is essential for learning and you are not expected to know everything right away. Your Team will be more than happy to help, and this will allow you to grow. Always be curious, ask and learn! 

Where to from here? 

I would like to continue to pursue learning opportunities where I can acquire new experiences and skills. Whether this means looking at different roles or enrolling in a variety of university courses: I know I’ll strive to take in every moment in my pursuit of knowledge because learning is what I love to do. 

My Career Pathway 

  1. School-Based Trainee from Year 11 
  2. 2ummer Intern at NAB Early Careers 
  3. Converted to Casual Branch Role 
  4. Commenced University 
  5. Excited to see what’s next!
