Banking, Insurance & Finance
Did you know that we’ve been around longer than any other bank in Australia?
Since 1817 to be exact. Since then, we’ve grown up as a company and our family has gotten bigger, we still put service at the heart of everything we do and our people are our priority.
Think that banks only care about themselves? You’ll change your mind once you’ve joined our team. We’ve made a commitment to put our customers first in everything we do; we’re calling it the Service Revolution. We want to change the way people think about our bank. Basically, we’re striving to give our customers an exceptional experience, every time — and you can be part of that.
How you’ll be part of more than a bank
You may think that a career in banking only involves tellers, bank accounts and the sorts of jobs you’d find in a bank 50 years ago. But we can offer you so much more than that. When you work with us, you could be helping to make money available 24/7, embracing technology, giving advice, trading or managing property. That’s because we don’t think of ourselves as just a bank; we’re a service company that strives to help our customers achieve their dreams.
