Hey BNZ,

Do you have any opportunities for students straight out of high school?

Hi Jamie,

We have a range of entry level positions available and this is probably the best avenue to take as a school leaver. This could include our face to face roles in our stores or our contact centre roles where you are dealing with customers over the phone. 

Thanks, Margot

Sorry BNZ, I have updated my question now.

Hi BNZ,

I’m really into finance, but I’m not that good at maths, what opportunities do you have on offer for students who want to get into banking but aren’t good with numbers?

Hi Simon,

Great to hear you are interested in finance! That is not a problem - Working for BNZ doesn't mean that you have to be dealing with numbers all the time. We have a large range of opportunities available - everything from our IT teams, marketing teams, relationship management and our front line customer services opportunities. All these teams help our customers be good with money! 

Thanks, Margot

What is it best to have done at school if I am looking for an entry level job?

Hi BNZ, 

What are the rotations within your graduate programme? 

Thanks

Hi Jono,

We have several different graduate programmes available! These range from Agribusiness to Accounting & Finance to Corporate & Commercial Banking - which is our relationship management teams. Each of these programmes are recruited separately. Within these programmes we do have rotations & this is great as it will give you a well rounded understanding of that area. For more information on our graduate programmes click here: https://www.bnzcareers.co.nz/graduate/home.

Thanks, Margot

Hello Margot,

What do you do at BNZ?

Ba66b61d2a1b2716a0ff5a4808c282e9?s=100&d=identicon

Hi BNZ,

what would you say separates you from the other banks in New Zealand?

061f8af51b187e81a5bbc4857c15f576?s=100&d=identicon

Hi Eugene,

We have so many different opportunities available it is hard to say you must study one thing. We have marketing teams, accounting teams, relationship management teams and of course our front line roles - the people you see when you walk into a BNZ. You should study what you enjoy. Thanks, Margot

Hi Simon,

I am a Talent Acquisition Consultant which means I recruit for our all our Retail Stores in Auckland and Waikato. I love my job because I get to deal with people every day and help them find jobs. I started in the contact centre dealing directly with our customers and have moved internally. BNZ has a lot of opportunities available for our internal staff & they are really focussed on helping us develop and grow in our roles. Thanks, Margot

Hi BNZ,

I'm interesting in marketing and advertising. What kinds of opportunities do you have for students who want to get into the advertising side of banking?

0bbc32a3ae3ad5de99579e1c56d1fdb4?s=100&d=identicon

Hello BNZ,

Do you advise students to work part time while they study? It seems like this would be hard to do and get good grades.

061f8af51b187e81a5bbc4857c15f576?s=100&d=identicon

Hi Eugene,

Great question! BNZ is a market leader in the banking sector and I think our culture is a big part of what makes us shine. We have a unique culture and it comes through in everything we do! We're focusing on our customers - we like to get to know them and help them be good with their money. We are continually improving the way we do business, and providing great leadership throughout our teams. Thanks, Margot

Hi BNZ,

do you need a degree to become a bank teller?

061f8af51b187e81a5bbc4857c15f576?s=100&d=identicon

Hi Jamol, 

Marketing and advertising would be a very exciting career path! The best thing to do would be to look at our entry level roles like our face to face customer roles. This would help you learn about BNZ and how we deal with our customers. BNZ are very good at working with you to develop your skills  and experience so you can move into other areas of the bank. We have a lot of opportunity for our employees to move into other roles. Thanks, Margot

HI Margot, 

I am looking at entering the workforce straight after school, I have quite good grades, but what else do you look for in your entry level employees other than grades? 

Thanks
