Who are we?

We count on the Defence Force and they count on us. At Defence Bank, we open the doors every day to serve those who protect us. 

We are a member-owned bank who re-invests our profits into improving products and services for the benefit of 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.

We count on the Defence force.

We are honoured to serve the defence community and to support our team members who are part of it. 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. 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.

Our Defence force can count on us.

We have 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 industry top quartile employee engagement scores in 2018 & 2019 and top decile in 2020. In 2019, we were awarded the Prime Minister's Excellence in Supporting Spouse Employment award, which recognises the support we provide to our Defence partner team members. We were also a finalist in 2020.

Some of the benefits we offer include:

  • employee assistance program.
  • families on deployment peer support group.
  • defence families intranet social group.
  • defence families intranet page.
  • eight weeks paid parental leave.
  • eligibility for parental leave after only six months service (reduced from twelve months).
  • consideration for flexible working arrangements and leave at short notice.
  • savings & benefits across select banking products.
  • employee recognition & service awards.
  • recruitment referral reward.
  • recognition of key life events.
  • 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 partner.
