Westpac Group is creating more than 300 new roles in Adelaide and is encouraging South Australians to apply.
The roles consolidate Westpac as one of the largest employers in the state with a workforce of more than 5,000 people locally.
Westpac and BankSA State General Manager, Consumer, Mr Ben Owen, said a range of roles are on offer from customer support to team leaders, analytics and operations management, consumer and business bankers, and more.
“These roles provide South Australians with unique employment opportunities to join a large-scale business with a strong presence in the local market and build a career in the banking sector.
“We know that many South Australians have valuable transferrable skills that would be a good fit for these roles, so if they’re passionate about helping people, we encourage them to apply.
Many of the roles support Westpac Group’s national operations across all brands, including BankSA.
“Our teams in South Australia work across some of our most critical operations, including lending, customer care and hardship assistance functions - and were at the heart of the bank’s customer response during the height of the pandemic, processing approximately 229,000 support packages for households and small businesses nationally,” said Mr Owen.
These latest roles build further on the Group’s announcement in March that it had created 1,538 new jobs in the state over the previous 16 months.
“Westpac Group has had a presence in South Australia for 144 years. Through our continued investment we’re proud to be growing our workforce here - supporting South Australians with job opportunities and contributing positively to the local economy,” said Mr Owen.
Westpac announced in July last year that it would bring jobs back to Australia from overseas to improve operational resilience and customer support during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Westpac Group also continues to invest in the South Australian community through partnerships such as the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter Service; community grants to small and local not-for-profits that are making a difference in local communities, and $400,000 for South Australians undertaking inspiring work as part of the Westpac Scholars program in 2021.
