NAB goes on tech hiring spree

As it kicks off a three-year programme designed to simplify the bank and reshape its workforce for the digital age, Australia's NAB is promising to immediately hire 600 technology specialists in the areas of software engineering, data, architecture and security.

Earlier this month the bank said it will shed 6000 jobs and retire up to 20% of its existing IT applications and 50% of its product line over three years, while at the same time creating 2000 new roles for people with distinct skills in data sciences, AI and robotics automation.

The first 600 tech recruits will come in the very near future, with chief technology and operations officer Patrick Wright vowing to bring in the best talent from Australia and the world.

"We know this is an ambitious target and acknowledge the war for talent is intense, but these are the essential skills and roles we need in order to deliver our plan," says Wright.
