Careers in Financial Services and Core Services  

  • What’s the difference between Financial Services and Core Services?

    When you apply for a role, you may have the option to nominate a preference to work in either the Financial Services (FS) sector or Core Services.

    In FS, you’ll work with a diverse range of clients within the financial services industry across Insurance, Banking and Capital Markets, and Wealth and Asset Management. Our FS roles tend to have a more specialised focus; however, you’ll work on a truly global scale with multinational companies across Oceania and in some cases, Asia-Pacific. This means working in integrated teams and collaborating across different areas of our business.

    Our Core Services business is slightly different; roles here will give you access to clients across multiple industries (e.g. Construction and Infrastructure, Energy and Media and Telecoms), so you’ll get broad experience as you work across different business sectors. We’re a global business so while you’ll focus on clients within Australia, you’ll also have opportunities to work across other geographies where possible.
