A strong graduate cohort

As a grad, you'll build valuable networks and make new friends - many of whom you'll work with in the years to come.

There’s a strong focus on our graduate community. Our graduates run a committee which provides social gatherings, networking events and opportunities for community liaison and volunteering. Our graduates also have regular opportunities to showcase their knowledge and skills within our organization and the wider community.

A community minded organisation

It feels good to be part of an organisation that cares about its community. We’re a leader in Corporate Responsibility. We strive to make a positive and sustainable impact on the lives of our customers, people, shareholders, community, and the environment in which we operate. Our Corporate responsibility agenda is seen in all parts of our organisation and you’ll have the opportunity to be involved.

What we look for in a NAB Graduate

We have a passion for customers, a will to win, respect for people and we strive to be bold and do the right thing. We’re looking for people to join us who will live these values.

We'll also look at:

  • Extracurricular involvement - We’re not only looking for high academic achievers. Maybe you've travelled, coached a junior volleyball team or worked in the community.
  • Leadership potential - You can demonstrate your leadership qualities through experiences such as being a music captain, leading a university project or mentoring a junior student.
  • Customer focus – We’re looking for people who put themselves in our customer’s shoes, to understand what they need and make a real connection.
  • Work experience - We don’t expect you to have corporate experience but it would be great if you’ve had some experiences in serving customers, meeting deadlines and working in a team.
  • A general understanding of NAB - We’re looking for people who are passionate about working for NAB, who want to be part of our graduate program and build a career in our organisation.
