Shaping a world where people and communities thrive.
Since opening as the Bank of Australasia in the 1830s, we’ve been focused on creating a balanced, sustainable economy in which everyone can take part and build a better life.
We believe that the value of banking is not measured in dollars and cents. Our true worth lies in the relationships built by connecting people and businesses.
It’s about unlocking opportunities that empower the community to transform and grow.
Today, there are more facets to what we do than ever before, but what we do is underpinned by the same values we’ve always had. As part of our team, you’ll experience first-hand how we can help you develop a career that’s rewarding, flexible and inclusive.
HERE'S A SNAPSHOT...

Disability & Accessibility
We’re committed to giving you every opportunity to learn and grow by creating a thriving and inclusive workplace. Our purpose is to shape a workplace where people and communities thrive. That means ensuring our future workforce is open to everyone.
The future of ANZ is one where leaders are curious, create shared clarity by inspiring others, empower people, connect with others in an empathic way, develop and grow people selflessly. Diversity and inclusion is integral to ANZ.
Our employees are a part of one of Australia’s largest companies, and we aim to be an employer of choice for people with accessibility needs, where there is equal access and opportunity for every member of our teams.
Our Approach to Accessibility
Over many years, ANZ has developed a range of commitments and initiatives to support the accessibility, diversity and inclusion of our customers, communities and employees. These commitments support financial wellbeing, improve the accessibility of everyday banking services, and support customers with tailored banking products and services. They underpin a key sustainability target, to help enable the social and economic participation of one million people by 2020.
We work towards creating opportunities for people with disability at ANZ by:
Providing disability confidence training to recruiters and managers so they can support people with disability applying for roles with us;
Continuing to raise awareness in relation to resources and information available to support inclusive recruitment and workplace adjustments;
Collecting and analysing data about the diversity (including disability) of our workforce, so we can better understand the retention, engagement and professional development of diverse groups;
Supporting individuals participating in ANZ’s Autism Spectrum Program to build their skills and develop thriving careers;
Growing our employee-led Abilities Network, and harnessing their insights to better inform design and development of ANZ processes, products and services;
Growing our disability mentoring and paid university internship programs for students with disability;
Continually improve our communications to ensure they are accessible and inclusive
Accessible & Inclusive for all
Wherever ANZ operates we want to ensure we attract and develop the best people for the role. One of the ways we achieve this is through employee-led networks such as ANZ Pride. Pride exists to promote diversity, inclusion and respect for the bank’s staff and customers worldwide by supporting and engaging our people, their families and friends, and the LGBTIQ+ community.
Supporting our Staff
With more than 2000 members globally ANZ is proud to have an LGBTIQ+ and allies network. Formed in 2007, and formalised in 2013, the aim of the network is to be a voice, contact point and support mechanism for LGBTIQ+ employees and allies. Pride focuses on active engagement through internal and external activities supporting the community.
Supporting the LGBTIQ+ Community
ANZ is the Principal Partner of Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and has been marching and representing LGBTIQ+ staff for 14 years. Through our partnership, we’ve helped raise awareness and support to increase visibility of the LGBTIQ+ community through public displays of commitment such as GAYTM’s, GAYNZ branches as well as our recent multi- award winning “Sign Posts of Love” 2019 Mardi Gras campaign.
To extend ANZ and Sydney Gay & Lesbian Mardi Gras’ support and commitment to the LGBTIQ+ community beyond the Mardi Gras festivities, we developed the ANZ & Sydney Mardi Gras Community Grants. Now in its third year, the grants provide financial funding for a wide range of purposes including education and training, community development and creation, arts and culture – anything under the rainbow.
In 2018 ANZ demonstrated its public support for the intersex community by becoming the first major publicly listed company in Australia and New Zealand to affirm the Darlington Statement. We are also one of 235 organisations worldwide to support the UN LGBTIQ+ Standards of Conduct for Business.
Improving our policies
Pride actively works with the Talent & Culture and Diversity & Inclusion teams to review and improve policies and procedures to ensure they are inclusive of our LGBTIQ+ employees and customer. In 2017, ANZ supported an employee in affirming their gender identity; Corey was the first person at ANZ to formally affirm their non-binary gender identity.
Whether you are single, an LGBTIQ+ parent or caring for a sick partner, ANZ allows for flexible working arrangements as long as these are agreed with your line manager. This means that in circumstances where you are the only person able to care for a child or partner, you can adjust your work arrangements to ensure you are able to meet both commitments inside and outside of work.
Recognition as an employer of choice
ANZ has received formal recognition for workplace inclusion through Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) (Australia), Rainbow Tick (NZ), and Community in Business Benchmarking (Hong Kong). In 2019 we achieved Platinum Employer recognition through AWEI for sustained and ongoing commitment to LGBTIQ+ inclusion.
ATSI at ANZ
An investment in your future
ANZ understands the important role our business plays in the lives of our employees, customers, suppliers and the communities in which we operate. Considering the vast amount of work still to be done in closing the gap between Indigenous and non- Indigenous Australians, we realise that we would not make a meaningful contribution unless we directed our efforts to those areas where we could, and should, be making a difference.
That’s why we’re committed to investing in and developing meaningful career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We offer a diverse range of career opportunities and are continuously seeking to attract Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander job seekers to work across our business areas nationally.
We want to lead the way in promoting and fostering an environment of awareness, acceptance and cohesion to step closer to a truly equal society between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australia. We strive to ensure that our workforce reflects the diversity of our customers, and harnesses the unique talents, perspectives and experiences of all our people.
ANZ’s Reconciliation Action Plan
ANZ was the first major Australian company to register a Reconciliation Action Plan in 2007, and we recognise there is more to be done. We continue to invest in our Reconciliation Action Plan as our roadmap to increasing social and economic participation and building a culturally safe environment for our people.
Things to Know
We provide school-based traineeships for Year 10-12 students who can complete a certificate III qualification, develop a network of professional relationships and receive work experience while earning.
Job Ready Virtual Internship
This internship has been created for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students to prepare them for the workforce.
