Corporate and Institutional Banking Intern- Westpac (Melbourne and Sydney)

This summer, Westpac is offering two paid internships for suitable candidates through the Stepping Into Program. The internships will commence in the summer university break and will be for a period of 10 weeks.

Students from all disciplines are welcome to apply for the Corporate and Institutional Banking Program, but you will have a strong interest in financial services with a strong analytical ability. Given CIB will often identify strategic opportunities for our clients, individuals with analytical, proactive and forward thinking ideas will fit well within our program and team culture.

By joining the Corporate and Institutional Banking Program you’ll learn more than just banking. To excel at your role you’ll need to develop a deep understating of your customers’ industry and business needs – expanding your knowledge and skill set beyond banking products and services alone. We aim to act as a trusted advisor to our customers, partnering with them across both their day to day and strategic aspects of their businesses.

The interns will be allocated to a particular team and will work alongside experienced analysts and relationship managers.

The type of work involved may include:

  • Researching topical issues within a particular industry and contributing to research reports and credit submissions.
  • Market and competitor research and analysis.
  • Assessing existing and potential clients including full financial analysis in order to determine the appropriate credit risk rating and resultant lending appetite.
  • Supporting the relationship team with ad hoc requests. Although allocated to a particular team, the program also provides interns with a broad overview of Corporate and Institutional banking.

During the 10 week program, interns will receive support from a recent graduate as well as a dedicated placement manager to ensure your learning experience is optimised.


To be eligible for the summer internship, students must be:

  • Currently studying a relevant undergraduate or postgraduate degree at university
  • In their penultimate year of study.
  • Australian citizens
  • Registered with Disability Services at university OR provide proof of eligibility for Stepping Into with relevant medical documentation
