Your role: Graduate 2017
Region: Sydney, New South Wales
What’s your story?
I am proud to be a NAB Graduate in Sydney, New South Wales. I was previously (and still am currently) a Pharmacist, and decided to partake in a career change into banking. I decided to make this transition as I truly enjoy building relationships with fellow colleagues and our customers.
How have you made a difference?
This is a story of how NAB made a difference to me, and not the other way around. I am currently doing a secondment in our Tokyo office in Japan. For me, it is an invaluable opportunity to learn more about how NAB operates in an international market, as well as develop both professionally and personally. I was bold enough to look for a change but ultimately it was the people of NAB who backed me, and helped turn this opportunity into a reality. This experience will empower me to make a difference to NAB in the future.
What are you passionate about?
Some people spend money on cars or the newest technology gadgets, I spend mine on food. To me, it is an experience and I try to find meals where ingredients are used to their full potential. Quality time with family and friends comes in at a very close second!
