Application process

We’ve designed our application process with you in mind. We’ve simplified our approach and ensure we’re only asking you to answer questions or complete online activities that are relevant to the role you’re applying for. We’re interested in you, your capabilities, experiences and career aspirations. Our approach is centred on providing you every opportunity to share your best and authentic self.

Complete the application form

Tell us more about who you are, your skills and experience. Here you nominate your chosen business area. You can't change your mind after submitting your application, so please choose carefully.

Documents you’ll need to upload

A copy of your most recent academic transcript (if you’ve completed a postgrad you’ll need to upload a copy of your undergrad and postgrad results). We don’t look at your GPA/WAM, your transcript is a useful reference to confirm degree discipline or major.

Online assessment

Once we've had a look at your application, if you meet eligibility criteria, we’ll invite you to the next stage to complete online assessment. You can take the assessment at home or anywhere you have online access.

Video interview

Once we’ve reviewed your online assessment results, we’ll let you know if you’ll move onto the next stage - video interviews. This stage gives us a deeper understanding of who you are and provides a great opportunity for you to share a little bit about yourself with us.

Once you log onto our secure site, you’ll be asked a few questions and you’ll need to record your responses. You can do this at any time, and anywhere you feel comfortable.

Engagement Centre

The final stage of the recruitment process is an Engagement Centre. There’ll be opportunities to hear about our Graduate Program, meet past graduates and business leaders, and demonstrate your skills by participating in a range of interactive activities.

Our Engagement Centres are usually held in May/June. We'll keep you updated once dates are finalised.

Engagement Centres are held by business area and via Zoom.

Getting an offer

If you're successful, we'll call you a few days after your Engagement Centre with the news.

It’s important to note that relocation to participate in the graduate program is self-funded.

Staying in touch

We know that applying for graduate positions can be stressful. We'll keep you in the loop about how your application is tracking. We’ll keep in touch with you via email, so be sure to give us the email address you use most regularly.

Tips for success

To avoid any delays don’t leave your application until the last minute; be sure to apply as soon as possible. We’ve streamlined our online application so it shouldn’t take you too long!

  • Do your research. Understand the business area you’ve applied for and why you’re interested in a career at NAB.
  • Take the time to review your application and ensure spelling and grammar are correct. Ensure you’ve completed all the mandatory fields so your application can be submitted.
  • When completing online assessments ensure you’re free from distraction and have good internet connection. Read the questions carefully and if you’re unfamiliar with these types of assessments try some practice questions beforehand.
  • Prepare for your Video Interview by thinking about the various school, work, and life experiences you can draw on. Think about how you can make your experience relevant to the role you’re applying for.
  • Enagage in mock interviews with family or friends and get them to ask you questions and provide constructive feedback. Familiarise yourself with a Behavioural Based Interview process.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions at the end of the interview to better your understanding of the graduate role. Remember it’s also about you getting to know us!
  • Above all relax and be yourself
