Our Graduate Program

Bankwest Graduate Program overview - Explore your future with use

Designed to attract the best and brightest, our Graduate Program is a challenging and rewarding way to kick-start a long-term career with us.

That must be why our amazing graduates have voted us into the Top75 Graduate Employers in Australia for 2017! The Australian Association of Graduate Employers runs an annual graduate survey asking about responsibilities, the career development offered, the culture of the company, and what our managers are like. We’re proud to say we’ve come out on top, and we’re sure you’d be proud to become part of the Bankwest family.

How does our Graduate Program work?

You’ll start with us in February, but the length of your Program varies based on which business area you choose.

Your time at Bankwest will start with a thorough orientation, where you’ll hear from senior leaders, receive market-leading training and meet fellow graduates. During your first year, we’ll hold other conferences and master classes where you can develop your skills, expand your networks and have fun.

Every business area offers a rotational program. Rotations help you to learn about the different areas of our business and decide where you want to take your career.
