Employer Profile



We are here to serve customers well and help our communities prosper. Today, there are more than 32,000 people, serving 8 million customers, at over 900 locations throughout Australia, New Zealand and around the world. Through investment in our colleagues and our 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.



We’ve shown through our response to COVID-19 what it means to put customers and colleagues first. We’ll continue to move with speed, simplicity and focus, so we can continue to work on what matters most.


You’ve studied hard and you’re ready to take the next step. We understand that it’s not always easy to find your way. NAB offers a number of Early Career Programs to provide you with opportunities to realise your potential and be at your best. 

Our Intern Programs are paid placements where you’ll discover first-hand what it’s like to learn and work at one of Australia’s largest and most successful financial institutions. You’ll not only gain insights into the banking and finance industry, but you’ll be provided with career coaching to help you figure out what you want from your career and how to achieve it. Our programs focus on employability and future skills development that will compliment your study and set you up for future career success.

At the end of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to apply and potentially receive an early offer for our Graduate Program or ongoing employment.
