Meet Jeremy

"One of my main tasks was to simplify and improve monthly reporting processes – work that benefited my team and the business we supported, but also challenged me to further develop my hard skills. My People Leader made a conscious effort to get me involved in work that would equip me with the necessary skills and knowledge required in future Finance roles.”

Jeremy, NAB Finance Graduate
