Testimonials from graduates

Sabrina - Law graduate
Meet Sabrina
Law Graduate

Through the Graduate Program, I rotated through four teams across ASIC which exposed me to incredibly varied work and allowed me to better understand and appreciate the broad mandate ASIC has.

I completed rotations in Enforcement, Markets, Strategy and Corporations.

The work I did across these teams ranged from contributing to the case theory for a large investigation into directors’ duties and attending onsite at investment banks to reviewing disclosure documents for prospective capital raisings and writing briefs to the Commission.
 

Roger - Arts & Social Sciences graduate
Meet Roger
Arts & Social Sciences Graduate

I joined ASIC because I wanted to help ensure that all Australians can trust our financial system, which we rely on every day to provide a roof over our head, to protect ourselves against life's unknowns, and to save for the future. The ASIC Graduate Program was particularly appealing to me because I was able to rotate through four very different teams and see the regulatory system from the law reform process all the way through to civil and criminal litigation.

I've thoroughly enjoyed the Graduate Program, in particular the supportive managers as they have always prioritised my learning to help me understand the purpose behind the work that we do.

Matthew - Mathematics, Statistics and Analytics graduate
Meet Matthew
Mathematics, Statistics & Analytics Graduate

The ASIC graduate program has given me exposure to a diverse range of work that comes with ASIC's large remit.

Through my rotations, I've had the opportunity to conduct risk assessments of different insurance markets, apply analytical and statistical techniques to ASIC's ongoing surveillances to drive law reform, and contribute to the National Financial Capability Strategy.

The graduate program was also a great platform in helping me transition from university into a professional work setting, as I was given plenty of support from team mentors and previous graduate cohorts.

Meet Tina
Finance, Economics & Business Registry Graduate

I love the dynamic and project-based work environment that ASIC Registry offers, where multidisciplinary teams and a supportive culture encourages diverse thinking. The projects I've worked on manage complex interrelationships between systems, process, people and external stakeholders, allowing me to strengthen many different capabilities.

I have assisted with the deployment of new registration rules for ASIC Registered Agents. I have also developed recommendations based on process and statistical analysis that have guided customer service policies and led to business improvement. ASIC has supported my interest in auditing and I am now accredited as an internal auditor for Registry.

Rochelle - Bachelor of Information Technology
Meet Rochelle
Bachelor of Information Technology Graduate

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.
