Employer Profile

CommBank is Australia’s largest bank, and one of the world’s largest by


We’ve grown to a business that serves 15.9 million customers, employs 48,900

people and has more than 800,000 shareholders. We offer a full range of financial

services to help secure and enhance the financial wellbeing of Australia's people, businesses and communities.


Our purpose is to secure the financial well-being of our customers and securities,

and we achieve this by consistently living our three values – Care, Courage and Commitment.  


We know great things happen when you bring different perspectives together. This is why at

CommBank, we’re looking for the best and brightest minds, across every degree. We know that sometimes your degree isn’t the end of the journey and that for a lot of people what you study isn’t necessarily what you end up doing. That’s an unlikely match.

We’re continuously expanding our capabilities, therefore we need to make sure we’re recruiting students with skills across all disciplines to adjust to an ever-changing environment. As Australia’s largest bank, we have a great footprint with graduates and interns and are seen as a true employer of choice.

At CommBank, our Graduate and Summer Intern programs are a challenging and rewarding way to kick-start your career.

Graduates start with us in February as a permanent employee, but the length of your program can vary. Being such a large and diverse business, we have a vast range of opportunities for you to take hold of. 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 comes together for best in class development events to enhance your 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.


Our 10-week Summer Intern program gives you a taste of the CommBank life. You’ll be given full support and training to help you decide if we’re the right fit for you. At the end of the Program you’ll also have the opportunity to apply early for our Graduate Program for the following year.
