Meet Melita

Name: Melita Hegarty

Your role: Intern, Corporate Affairs

Region: Docklands, Victoria

What’s your story?

I secured my very first job with NAB as an Indigenous School-Based Trainee when I was 15 years old.

I am now 19 and have been with NAB for four years working in one of their retail branches in Queensland. In that time, I have evolved from a school-based trainee to a full-time employee. Currently, I’m undertaking a three month internship in the Corporate Affairs team in Docklands in Melbourne. I’ve already learnt so much!

How has NAB made a difference?

I recently attended NAB’s Indigenous Emerging Leaders Program. It was here we discovered that we (Indigenous employees), could be doing more to support our Indigenous colleagues and trainees.

After this program I sought out the local trainees in my region and engaged with them. It was through this experience I spoke with a girl who was considering not completing her traineeship. I decided to share my story with her on how I have grown from a school-based trainee in Brisbane to an intern in Melbourne. She then decided to stick out her traineeship and see where her journey led her. Her decision to complete her traineeship brought me immense joy.

What are you passionate about?

I am passionate about education and employment. Capitalising on my passions I want to create a brighter future for young Indigenous Australians
