AustralianSuper Graduate & Intern Programs

Our story began more than 30 years ago, with the creation of universal superannuation for all Australians. Since then, we’ve become Australia’s largest super fund and one of the largest pension funds in the world – an advantage we use on behalf of members every day.

We’re committed to members

Our purpose is singular and clear – to help members achieve their best financial position in retirement.

As a profit-to-member organisation, membership is more to us than just an annual statement. We’re committed to giving members the peace of mind they need to enjoy life today, knowing their savings are being managed by a super fund that delivers.

We do this by creating meaningful value for members and our communities.

Who we are

At AustralianSuper, all colleagues live by our values of Integrity, Excellent Outcomes, Generosity of Spirit and Energy, governed by the principle of ‘Members First’.

As we’ve grown, we’ve continued to attract diverse new high performing colleagues that challenge our thinking, deliver outstanding member outcomes and, most importantly, share in our purpose.

Like our Intern Program, our Graduate Program offers a Member, Enterprise and Investments stream, providing graduates with the opportunity to rotate through teams across a two-year journey.

During your rotations you will participate in various development opportunities that will build the required skills and capabilities that will set you up for a successful career far beyond the graduate experience.

Through participation in three 2-week group projects, graduates further develop their foundational knowledge of the Fund’s values and purpose; risk frameworks and ways of working; and our investment philosophy and approach.

You will be fully supported along your journey as a graduate at AustralianSuper. As part of the program, you will have access to both buddies and a range of mentors that will assist in your growth and development.

The exciting opportunities as a graduate at AustralianSuper is endless and will include;

  • Access to leaders across the business
  • Networking opportunities
  • Specific technical training where required
  • Mentors and buddies
  • Coaching and feedback
  • Online learning and support

Following the completion of the Graduate Program, you will continue your AustralianSuper journey in an on-going permanent role.
