On our journey to be Australia’s bank of choice, we continue to set the example of how banking should be: progressive, innovative, sustainable, shared, and most importantly, trusted.

Financial Risk and Modelling are a highly collaborative, multi-disciplined unit that oversee and support risk management across Group Treasury and Financial Markets. The team provide expertise on policy direction, independent risk measurement, monitoring and reporting in relation to traded and non-traded market risk, liquidity risk, and counterparty credit risk.

We currently have a permanent fulltime opportunity for a Financial Risk Analyst to join the team. This role is key in monitoring and reporting of risks, predominantly originated or managed by Treasury and Financial Markets. This includes counterparty credit risk, liquidity risk, traded and non-traded market risks, and associated compliance risks. As a trusted subject matter expert you will be required to present and explain reports and models to Senior Management and relevant committees.

You’ll be assigned business-as-usual activities and will have the opportunity to be involved in various projects, providing you with broad exposure to treasury to further develop your technical skillset. As a trusted expert in your field you will be given ownership to work strategically, and your input on process improvement and automation will be highly valued.

Join a close-knit team of highly technical professionals that work towards team outcomes and share knowledge to build everyone’s capability and skills. This role can be based in any of our main office locations: Adelaide, Bendigo, Brisbane, Melbourne, or Sydney, for the days that you are in the office, and then other days you’ll be working from home to help better balance your life and work.

  • Provide oversight of the Group’s centrally cleared and bilateral derivative execution activities including collateral management
  • Ensure compliance with appropriate regulation including ASIC clearing and reporting rules


To be successful in the role, you'll have:

  • A tertiary qualification in Banking and Finance, Risk Management, or a quantitative discipline such as Engineering, Mathematics, or Actuarial Science
  • Prior experience in market risk, liquidity risk, treasury, asset and liability management, or financial modelling disciplines
