Reserve Bank of Australia

The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is Australia’s central bank. We conduct monetary policy, work to maintain a strong financial system and issue the nation’s banknotes. Our core values – promotion of the public interest, integrity, excellence, intelligent inquiry and respect – guide everything we do. We offer a wide variety of opportunities for students majoring economics, finance, mathematics, statistics, science, engineering and law (in any combination).

The RBA Internship Program (previously the RBA Cadetship Program) provides eight weeks’ vacation work and ongoing support to talented students who have the potential to be successful graduates .

Our two-year Graduate Development Program offers comprehensive training and development. You apply knowledge acquired at university to challenging real-world situations and acquire key transferrable skills.

Graduates analyse key Australian or overseas trends, prepare briefing notes on statistical releases, research developments in financial markets, or contribute analysis to monetary policy discussions. Others examine banknote security and distribution, participate in the RBA’s community and business liaison programs and evaluate payments systems regulation and financial system stability.
