Your vision could become a reality

If you complete your studies in 2019 with eligibility to graduate in 2020, then being part of our Grad programme could become a reality.

Westpac is looking for grads who:

  • love what they do
  • love to go the extra mile and serve our customers in the best way possible
  • embrace digital technology
  • are resilient, learning orientated and enjoy new challenges
  • are professional and accountable
  • are diverse, flexible and inclusive

Process to apply

Step 1: Your application

  • Complete all required fields and ensure you attach your resume and academic transcript (Unofficial transcript is fine also)
  • Your resume represents your qualifications, experience and interest - make sure you cover off;
      • Your personal details: Your full name, preferred name, location and contact details
      • Your career objective covering a short explanation about your career goals
      • Your education including qualifications, institution, dates of study, majors and academic average
      • Your previous work experience including industry or non-industry related
      • Extracurricular activities: We want to know about you; whether its sporting, volunteering, social, community or university engagement
      • Your skills: Include any technical skills you have gained

Step 2: Online Assessment

If you’re successful during our screening process, you will be invited to complete a series of online assessments which helps us to determine your alignment to our values and suitability for the role.

You will receive an email detailing what you need to do to complete the online assessments with specific deadlines to complete these (in some cases this may only be 48 hours). Please keep an eye on your trash folder as sometimes these emails end up in spam. The earlier you submit your application, the longer you will have to complete your assessments. If you don’t complete your assessments in the timeframes specified, we won’t be able to consider your application further. You will face 2 testing invitations as below:

  • Culture fit – this assessment measures the degree to which a candidate aligns with Westpac's aspirational culture and whether they will be a good cultural fit for the organisation
  • Cognitive ability testing – assesses problem solving and reasoning ability

Step 3: Video Interview

This is really your chance to shine, allow us to get to know you better and show off your personality! We appreciate video interviews are quite daunting and something you may have never done before so here’s a few tips!

  • Find a quiet space where you won’t be interrupted
  • Check your background, lighting and camera angle
  • You will also have some time to read the question and prepare before you hit record
  • Don’t panic you will get a practice run to test your mic and camera
  • Treat it as a formal interview so prepare, research and appear professional
  • Be conscious of posture and body language
  • Video interviews are not live but be prepared that you cannot pause, stop or restart the interview

Step 4: Interview / Assessment Centre

If you are successful to progress to this stage, an interview with the business will be involved. Remember this is just as much your opportunity to meet us, as much as our opportunity to get to know you. If you have any questions about the programme, this is a great time to ask.

Successful applications will be welcomed to an interview or an assessment centre involving some of the following:

  • One-on-one interview
  • A business related case study
  • A group activity

You will have an opportunity to meet with our business and Graduates, use this as an opportunity to ask questions and find out if this is the right fit for you – it’s time to grill us too! Research is important, think strongly about why you have applied and what you can bring to the role. It helps to show us your personality, so try and relax and enjoy. Rest assured, the team at Westpac on the day only want to see you shine!

Step 5: The Decision

The exciting part! After the interview, you will receive a call and hopefully we can share with you the great news. If you decide (like us) that your future is with Westpac then we will require you to accept the offer within seven days.

  • If you are still in the recruitment process or have received an offer with another organisation, that’s ok with us but please be transparent and we will try to accommodate your situation
  • If you are unsure about your offer, please give one of the grad recruiters a call, we are more than happy to talk this through with you and provide further information if you need it
  • If you accept, you will be also required to complete a background check and provide the details of two referees we can contact
