Great Southern Bank

Be part of something great!

Would you like to be part of an organisation that’s purpose driven, customer-owned and makes a real difference to the financial wellbeing of over 568,000 Australians? Sounds pretty good, hey!

Great Southern Bank is the largest customer owned organisation in Australia. For 75 years, we’ve been dedicated to helping our customers achieve their financial goals and own their own homes. Customers are at the heart of everything we do, and we support them with banking, insurance and health insurance products and services.

We recognise that it’s our people that give us our edge and make us unique. So, why not be part of a genuine, diverse, and inclusive team? Come join us.

A place where everyone belongs

We are proud to be an inclusive and diverse workplace where people feel a sense of belonging, are valued, connected and respected.

With over 1100 team members throughout Australia, we value diversity and believe it’s the unique differences, ideas, backgrounds and experiences of our people that help us deliver great experiences for our customers and the communities we operate in.

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are a network of team members who play an active role in building an inclusive culture. Celebrating cultural events, national days of recognition, or influencing for positive change are just some of the activities our ERGs and ally members get involved in.

Sponsored by an Executive Committee member we have three active ERGs:

  • Gender Balance (Gender Equity and Flexibility)
  • Pride Tribe (LGBTIQ+ and Allies)
  • 195+ (Cultural Diversity)

Around 60% of our team members are women, who also make up the majority of our executive team. We continue to aspire to achieve and maintain an equal gender split at our leadership levels.

We are proud members of the Diversity Council of Australia (DCA) and Pride in Diversity. We continue to participate in the DCA’s Inclusion@Work Index and the Australian Workplace Equality Index.

To help you be at your best, we provide a collaborative, flexible and supportive working environment that helps you balance career, family, health and the things you love doing.
