  • Do you want to kick-start your career?
  • Are you interested in building employability skills to complement your study?
  • Are you looking for first-hand experience in the inner workings of a successful organisation ?
  • Are you passionate about customers and want to make a real difference?
  • Do you want to return to university from your summer break with a potential graduate position?

If you answered yes to all the above, join us over your summer break for our innovative approach to a Summer Internship Program.

Over Summer 2018/2019, we’re launching our Intern Program; an invaluable 7 week rotational program to develop skills and capabilities important for your career success in the workforce of the future. You’ll discover firsthand what it’s like to learn and work in one of Australia’s largest and most successful financial institutions.

Our Summer Intern Program is offered to university students in their second last year of their degree (undergraduate or postgraduate).

How does the NAB Summer Intern Program work?

We know you’ve studied hard and might not know exactly what you want to do when you finish your degree. We understand it’s not always easy to find your way. Our program is designed to back you in this early stage of your career, to help you develop the skills, knowledge and network with which to build an exciting and inspiring career, no matter where it takes you.

Our Program consists of four one-week Employability and Future Skills rotations followed by a 3-week immersive business placement. You’ll not only gain insights into the banking and finance industry, but also into yourself with a personal action plan. You’ll be provided career coaching to determine what you want from your career and how to achieve it.

Regardless of the business area you choose, our Summer Intern Program is a worthwhile investment in your future. You’ll attend a banking fundamentals workshop, learn customer relationship skills, attend an employability bootcamp and participate in a business challenge, all whilst having the opportunity to network and attend social events. You’ll be surprised at the skills you develop and the friends you make along the way.

At the end of our program, you’ll have the opportunity to apply and receive an early offer for our Graduate Program the following year.
