What you’ll love…


Fast-track your career: As a strong performer, our structured three-year Graduate Program accelerates your career in Risk by supporting you to move into a Senior Executive Analyst at the end of the program. You can be confident you’ll have a permanent role with BOQ at the successful completion of the program.


Continual Development & Support: You will be supported during the program via on-the-job training and professional development sessions. You will also be assigned a buddy to assist you with your day-to-day tasks and a mentor to help you navigate through your new work life. We’ll enrol you in the FINSIA Banking Fundamentals course, which will provide a foundational banking knowledge platform to help build your future career.


Connecting with the team: Working within a regional bank, our relationship-oriented culture means you’ll quickly build networks across the organisation and gain exposure to team members across all levels.  People here care about your experience and will welcome you to the BOQ team. We’re proud to have a strong team at BOQ and continue to strengthen our team with each new recruit.


Exposure to the best: Networking opportunities within the program will give you the chance to meet our senior leaders and executives. When we say you will get exposure to the best, we really mean the best! Did you know our Chief Risk Officer has been awarded Chief Risk Officer of the Year four times in the last five years!


Challenge and growth: You’ll be getting your hands dirty and contributing to team and business goals within your first few weeks. We’re keen to stretch your thinking and learning right from the start which means you need to be ready to bring your ‘A’ game from day one.


Create impact: We’ve said it before – people at BOQ want to prove it’s possible. As a smaller bank your role will often have broader scope, which means you can make a wider impact in the work you do. It also means you get to be more involved in end-to-end processes rather than just small parts of a whole.


Bring the future forward: In case you haven’t noticed…our industry is going through lots of change. Global trends like digitisation and changing customer expectations, alongside regulatory reform are creating the platform for exciting transformations. Working within the Risk team, you’ll play an important role in bringing the future of BOQ forward.
