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.

Our Corporate & Public Affairs team help achieve this aspiration as custodians of the bank’s brand and reputation in the public domain.

Corporate Affairs focus on engaging with industry and government, sharing unique insights and knowledge, influencing policy development and public debate. As well as harnessing the collective power of the network through government relations, industry relations, public policy development, advocacy, and engagement, and thought leadership.

We currently have an opportunity for an Government and Industry Analyst to join the team, reporting into the Head of Corporate Affairs. This role will focus on engaging with government and industry, while supporting and coordinating our employees as they collaborate with these key stakeholders.

No two days will be the same as you coordinate the bank’s approach and contribution to government and industry discussions on a range of present and emerging issues and initiatives, as well as liaising with the bank’s major corporate partners. Immersed in an issues rich environment you’ll apply your inquisitive nature to gather data and information to shape and develop briefings for senior leaders.

Bring your expert networking and communication skills to manage and strengthen linkages between our bank, its people, and key government and industry stakeholders. You’ll confidently demonstrate your deep knowledge and understanding of the banking industry and regulations - a unique opportunity to stand out, influence, and make a big impact.

Join a small team of professionals who pride themselves on their subject matter expertise in the Corporate Affairs space that will provide you with career development in a non-hierarchical environment.

This role can be based in any of our main office locations: Adelaide, Bendigo, 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.

  • Develop and maintain relationships so that the bank is appropriately represented and actively participating with agreed government and industry working groups and forums
  • Research specific issues or change agendas to understand and articulate impacts on the Bank and considerations for advocacy back within the government and industry consultation process
  • Assist with written communication for target audiences which summarises current and future government and industry issues, impacts, and change agendas


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

  • A tertiary qualification in a relevant discipline such as Public Policy, Public Relations, Communications, or Business
  • Prior experience in banking, corporate affairs, government, or communications fields highly desirable
  • Good comprehension of the banking environment, operations, and regulation
  • Demonstrated capabilities in planning and coordinating working groups and advocacy campaigns
  • The ability to analyse and understand research and effectively communicate relevant insights and findings
