Reserve bank

The RBA Internship (previously known as the Cadetship Program) is an excellent opportunity for high-achieving students to get first-hand experience of what it is like to work in Australia’s central bank. The Internship has been designed to provide work experience and financial support during the final year of study to students who have the potential to be successful graduates at the RBA.

The RBA is looking for a high level of analytical skills and a genuine interest in working for an institution that has an effect on the lives of all Australians. Applications are accepted from 3rd year (or equivalent) students majoring in economics, finance, or related areas such as mathematics and statistics who intend to complete honours or similar research based programs.

Initially, the RBA offers successful candidates a paid eight week work placement over the summer. As an intern you will be supported as you undertake project work that culminates in a research paper that is presented to your peers and senior staff.

During your placement, you may also complete notes on data releases, analysis of developments in financial markets, or other work that provides an insight into working at the RBA as a graduate. In addition, you will attend targeted training as well as interactive information sessions designed to provide you with a more comprehensive understanding of the role of the Reserve Bank of Australia, and how you can contribute to the work of Australia’s central bank.

At the end of the eight week placement, Interns may be offered a place on the Graduate Development Program, which commences the following year. Interns who accept an offer as a graduate will be provided with financial support during their final year of study.

Applicants must hold Australian citizenship or permanent residency at the time of application. All of our opportunities are located in Sydney. To contact us about our programs email
