AustralianSuper Graduate Programs & Internships

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.

Who we are


Our Programs

By joining an AustralianSuper Graduate or Internship Program, you will develop lifelong capabilities while helping us positively impact the future of all Australians.

Building a clear understanding of our values and how they translate to everyday behaviours, graduates and interns alike are provided with meaningful work experiences linked to the Fund’s purpose.

Open to all undergraduate degrees, you will develop technical and functional competence whilst playing a pivotal role in ensuring members achieve their best financial position in retirement.

Internship Program

Running for 8-12 weeks, AustralianSuper internships offer participants unrivalled exposure to our award-winning teams, with the opportunity to work on real world projects and initiatives, whilst gaining exposure to senior business leaders.

Designed to provide interns with meaningful experiences and insights into the graduate journey, our Internship Program offers a Fund-wide stream and an Investments stream.

Successful completion of our Internship Program can lead to an offer to join our two-year, rotation-based Graduate Program.

Internship Programs are currently offered in Australia (Melbourne & Sydney) and London. Our New York office will be offering an Internship Program in 2024.

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 will 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 Fund-wide stream partners graduates and interns with our growth and experience teams, who passionately engage, service and grow the Fund’s membership, or the enterprise teams who expertly enable the efficient running of the Fund, including our technology, data, risk, and strategy functions.

As a graduate on the Fund-wide stream, you will experience three rotations (two core and one elective), developing a strategic and operational understanding of the respective teams and how they contribute to the Fund's purpose. Completing two core rotations aligned with your nominated rotation track, the elective rotation offers graduates the opportunity to further explore their interests and expertise.

As a Fund-wide intern, you will complete two 5-week rotations within your nominated rotation track. Working on a variety of interesting and challenging business problems, you will develop a solid understanding of the various teams and potential graduate pathway.
