What you’ll love…

Fast-track your career: Our 10 week Internship Program accelerates your career by putting you first in line for graduate jobs at the end of the program. If you’re a high performer you’ll be supported to move into a permanent role with BOQ once you’ve graduated. 

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 work life. As a member of our Early Career Network you’ll also have access to other like-minded people from across the organisation. 

Build relationships that last: Our culture is built around strong relationships, inclusion and acceptance. People here care about your experience and will welcome you to the BOQ team. Our work environment supports you in building collaborative partnerships so you can easily contribute to BOQ’s strategy and grow your networks for the future.

Exposure to the best: Networking opportunities within the program will give you the chance to meet our senior leaders and executives. This exposure will provide you with valuable insights to support your own career journey. 

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 experiences rather than just small parts of a whole.

Digital bank of the future: 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. 



Our Internship Program is located in Newstead, Brisbane. You’ll be based in our trendy BOQ Village office right amongst the cafes and bars of Gasworks. As we navigate COVID-19 we’ll also work with you and your intern team to determine where working from home makes sense.
