Defence Bank | Defence Partners

Join us

Who are we?

We are a bank who is member-owned and who re-invests our profits into improving products and services to benefit our members. Our members include the men, women and families that make up the Defence Community. We consider it a privilege to serve those who protect us. To deliver on this, we need a team of passionate, dedicated and resilient individuals who are committed to making a difference for our members.

Why work for Defence Bank?

We are honoured to serve the Defence Community and to support our team members who are part of this community. We actively support the recruitment of Defence partners and recognise the contribution that these team members make to our organisation and to our members.

We understand that the life of a Defence family offers unique challenges such as postings and deployments and we look to support our families and Defence partners wherever possible. We value the diversity that Defence partners and family members can bring to the bank and their skills in being adaptable, flexible, community minded, organised and resilient.

We have also partnered with Defence Families of Australia (DFA) to advocate for more initiatives to assist Defence partners.

We are proud to be kicking goals in the people space, with top decile employee engagement in 2018, a 2016 Employer of Choice award in the Australian HR Awards and a finalist in the 2017 AHRI and HR Awards. We are striving to be an even better place for work for our employees including Defence partners. Some of the staff benefits we offer include:

  • Savings & benefits across select banking products
  • Staff recognition & service awards
  • Recruitment referral reward
  • Recognition of Key Life Events
  • 8 weeks paid parental leave
  • Eligibility for parental leave after only 6 months service (reduced from 12 months)
  • Consideration for flexible working arrangements and leave at short notice
  • Employee Assistance Program
  • Corporate wardrobe allowance
  • Ongoing professional development

Building your career is important to us too. We offer portable career options and wherever practicable Defence Bank will endeavour to relocate Defence partners to a new location due to the posting needs of their spouses.
