Why work for BOQ

"...because we're a truly different place to work". 


BOQ is one of Australia's most dynamic and innovative financial institutions, with a retail bank offering a network of more than 260 branches across Australia, around 200 of which are operated under a unique Owner-Manager Model, a National Finance division and the St Andrew's Insurance group.  We are committed to offering our customers a truly personal banking experience, which is why we promise 'your own personal bank'.


Other key elements of our strategy are to: 

  • Wow the customer: Attract customers, especially the many who feel let down by their current bank, and keeping them with us by offering great ongoing service and competitive products they want;
  • Stick to the core: We focus on our core skill, what we’re truly good at, which is awesome customer service, as well as constantly developing our products that customers would value;
  • Continue to grow:  We will continue to expand our network organically, by opening branches and attracting retail and business customers, as well as looking for further strategic acquisitions with smaller players;
  • But think small: Even though we want to offer the great products and a convenient national network of a big bank, we want to retain the feel and friendly service of a small one;
  • Control costs: Despite five years of impressive growth, our cost-to-income ratio continues to fall and our goal is to continue to improve; and
  • Outperform the market: of course, we also want to continue to outperform the market in other key financial results too, while at the same time offering unrivalled customer service.



So how does this tie into working at BOQ, and what role can you play?

Every BOQ employee has a role to play in helping the bank achieve its goals. Our people make the difference by: 

  • Being an ‘other bank’ employee and performing in a way that is consistent with our goal to be different.
  • “WOWing” both external and internal customers with an unexpected level of service.
  • Focusing on what your customer needs, not just what you are prepared to give.
  • Embracing new ideas and continuously striving to improve.
