Learn more about what ASIC does here.
We value those who have sharp analytical minds and are open to challenging the way things are done. Our work is at the cutting edge. You will enjoy working on interesting and challenging projects in a fast moving and market driven environment.
It’s not often that a graduate program gives you this level of exposure so early, but we believe the most effective way to learn is through real world experience. From day one, you will be involved in meaningful work which may include surveillances, investigations, analysing intelligence, data analytics, and consumer research or even supporting new technologies.
Opportunities to learn and grow are the key to a long and rewarding career. At ASIC, you'll find you can expand your skills in an organisation that is committed to your ongoing professional development.
At ASIC, we believe that diverse perspectives are critical to our success. Our diversity and inclusion drive innovation, creativity and problem-solving, as well as individual and organisational productivity. Our professional networks along with our Communities of Practice support your learning and development.
Diversity and inclusion is not simply about gender, race, age, sexual orientation or disability. It's also about differences in working and thinking styles. Embracing these differences creates a working environment where all our people, our stakeholders and our communities are treated with fairness and respect.
You will work closely with our stakeholders. At ASIC, you will gain valuable insights and a different view of the financial services sector.
We partner with foreign regulators on matters abroad and are also an active member of the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO). ASIC is fast-moving, market driven and global and this is the world we operate in. With a bird's eye view of the local and global economies, you'll gain a unique perspective not found anywhere else.
Alongside our commitment to our charity partners through our corporate responsibility programs, we donate one day a year for you to give back to your community and help a charity or cause you're truly passionate about.
ASIC graduates also lead an annual fundraising project where vital funds are raised for ASIC charity partners. Past charities have included The Smith Family, Streetsmart Australia, Indigenous Literacy Foundation and Lifeline.
Testimonials from graduates
Bachelor of Applied Finance & Accounting“ASIC has such a large remit, and with the rotations offered by the program there is always diverse and exciting work to take on. My rotations have included implementing mandatory clearing for OTC Derivatives, assisting with an audit inspection at a Big Four accounting firm and helping to organise a RegTech Roundtable for the ASIC Innovation Hub.”
Bachelor of Economics & Finance“I love the variety of work ASIC offers. I have had the opportunity to work on a diverse range of projects from policy development, undertaking compliance assessments of licensee and financial advisers, developing new tools for ASIC using data analytics and statistical techniques and reporting on the domestic and global economy, just to name a few.”
Bachelor of Law & International Studies“During the graduate program I was exposed to a breadth of different work, from writing briefing notes for the Chairman, to drafting policy papers and preparing briefs of evidence for the prosecution of insider trading offences. ASIC values the work and enthusiasm of graduates and will provide you with challenging and interesting work from the outset.”
Bachelor of Information Technology“The people really do make the culture of the organisation, and ASIC has a pleasant working environment which makes it enjoyable to come in to work each morning. My rotations in the Information Technology teams have been in IT Security, End User Infrastructure and Database Administration. A highlight has been working directly with the Chief Information Officer, to encourage young women in to the field of IT. This has inspired me to think creatively about how we can close the gender gap in the IT industry, allowing ideas to come to life by being introduced to a network of executive women in IT.”
