Policy Development Specialist – 6 Month Fixed Term Contact

A bit about us…

We're a bank, but we're not like the big banks. Our proud history is built on a philosophy of building healthy communities that are financially, socially and environmentally sustainable. This is what guides the work we do everyday.

For more than forty years we have been a member owned bank, servicing the people Victorians rely on - police, health, emergency services and public sectors.

We are on a unique journey with a dynamic vision for the future and we're looking for exceptional people to jump on board. If you have innovative ideas, a passion to make a difference and believe you can contribute to creating an extraordinary member experience then we want to hear from you
