  • Victoria
  • Full Time


Join an organisation with strong values, a community focus and a great culture

At Bendigo and Adelaide Bank our relationships with our customers are what set us apart from other big banks. We do things differently here, and our customers are at the heart of what we do. It's in our DNA. We listen to them. We're one of Australia's most trusted brands, and our NPS from our customers shows our approach has not gone unnoticed.



About the role

Known internally as a Small Business Manager, this is definitely not a deskbound role!  You will have your own right-sized portfolio of Small Business Customers covering Greater Ballarat and Western Victoria, and manage and grow your portfolio through:

  • Relationship management: Visit your customers and see how their business operates.  Connect through quality conversations and build deep and lasting relationships so you can design and deliver innovative, holistic and needs-based solutions to partner in their success
  • Business development: There are huge opportunities for growth in the Small Business sector and business development will be an important part of your role: Develop and implement localised plans to raise the profile of Small Business in the community, deepen existing relationships and acquire new customers.
  • Collaboration:  Work closely with internal stakeholders: form partnership relationships with branch managers, coach and lead education of Branch teams, build trusted relationships with Credit Risk.


As a member of our Ballarat team, you will join a diverse and established team of Business Bankers where you will have career pathway options and development opportunities. You will be connected with a large network of company and Community Bank Branches who are well respected and strongly engaged with the communities they serve.

This is a full time, permanent position, with flexible work options available.  Whilst based in our Ballarat Business Centre, at times you will work from branches in the region to better service your customers and strengthen the relationship with the consumer team.
