Discover more benefits

In addition to great competitive financial rewards, we offer an abundance of benefits including flexible working arrangements, training and development.

  • We recognise and reward the contribution of those who excel and achieve high standards of performance. This includes:

    • Competitive salaries, superannuation and salary packaging options.
      Many positions offer performance incentives and bonus arrangements, salary sacrifice opportunities, and reward and recognition programs.
    • Employee Share Plans
      Colonial First State, as part of The Commonwealth Bank Group, offers the Employee Share Acquisition Plan (ESAP). This provides eligible employees with the opportunity to receive grants of up to $1,000 of free Commonwealth Bank shares each year.
    • Employee Assistance Program
      We provide our employees and their immediate families with a confidential 24-hour service to help address any employment, personal or family concerns they may have.
    • Staff benefits
      Our staff can take advantage of discounts and deals on a wide range of financial and non-financial products.
  • Flexibility is something that we all increasingly need and want at different times during our careers and for different reasons. Our approach to flexibility is about being focused on outcomes rather than face time.

    We support and trust our people to balance their professional and personal lives. Our range of flexible working arrangements include work breaks, reduced hours, job share, remote working and flexible hours.

Diversity and inclusion has become a non-negotiable for our organisation as we strive to create an inclusive culture where everyone feels they belong because of their uniqueness – ‘a place where you can be you, to do the best you can every day’.
