Graduate and internship programs

Our interns and graduates are a valued part of our industry-leading investment team. 

About our programs

We manage the retirement savings of more than two million Australians. We’re looking for excellent interns and graduates who can step up to that responsibility with energy, integrity and generosity of spirit. 

An internship with a difference

Running for eight weeks in January and February each year, our internship will give you an opportunity to work autonomously on two real projects with two different asset classes.

While working closely with senior managers and analysts, you’ll be given the opportunity to form your own opinions and present your findings to members of the investment team. At the end of a successful internship, you’ll have the opportunity to join AustralianSuper as a graduate.

  • Applying for our Internship Program

Graduated? Join our investment team

We offer a two-year, rotation-based program for graduates with our world-class Investment Department. As a graduate, you’ll spend time with different asset class teams (including equities, infrastructure, income assets and property) while undertaking a personalised development program with the support of a graduate manager and mentor. 

We often recruit graduates through our internship program, which will open for applications in 2018.

    Claire – Investment Department Graduate

    I graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance Honours).

    In 2011 I completed an internship with AustralianSuper and was offered a position in the graduate program, which I happily accepted. I applied for an internship at AustralianSuper because I recognised the growth potential in the Superannuation landscape and specifically the growth of AustralianSuper.

    I accepted a graduate offer from AustralianSuper for a number of reasons:

    1. As a graduate you have a unique opportunity to work very closely with senior management right up to CIO level. The flat structure of the organisation provides great opportunities for grads to learn directly from the most experienced people in the industry.
    2. Most organisations talk about ‘work-life’ balance, but AustralianSuper really means it. I experienced that first hand during the internship.
    3. The projects I worked on during my internship were real and challenging.

    Since starting the graduate program I have rotated through three teams; Fixed Income and Currency, Macro and Portfolio Construction and Unlisted (Infrastructure and Property). Each rotation has been very different, and through them I’ve been involved in things like:

    • Running the currency hedging program in fixed income
    • Working on a five month long run portfolio project, which considered how AustralianSuper are going to allocate funds between portfolios over the next 5-10 years
    • Being a part of the team bidding on a $1 billion domestic infrastructure asset

    If you’re interested in different asset classes and starting your career in the fastest growing sector of the financial services industry, then the graduate program at AustralianSuper is best in class.

Take the opportunity

We're setting new standards for super, and we're looking for great people to help us.
