ANZ Return to Work FAQs

Check out our answers to frequently asked questions about the ANZ Return to Work program.


What is this opportunity?

We know that it can be daunting to return to work. So much may have changed and you might be wondering about the relevance of your skills. You may also need flexibility and be concerned about how your needs can be accommodated. This is where the ANZ Return to Work program can help.

As part of the application process we will get to know a little bit more about your past work experience, as well as the details of what flexibility you'd like. We want to know how we can make this work for you, and will ask how many and what days you'd like to work, whether you would like flexible start and finish times, work from home options and much more.

The program is designed to help you transition back into the workforce, with learning, support and flexible work options. We are offering an 'ease in' option that includes a fixed term contract for 20 weeks with the possibility to extend or apply for a permanent role. For those that want to apply for a permanent role straight away, you can do that too.

Our Return to Work program gives you the opportunity to refresh your skills through training, in a supportive environment with leaders, mentors and colleagues, while being competitively remunerated for the value you bring.

What types of roles are available?

People working in ANZ's technology division are innovators, engineers, strategists, futurists, business leaders, architects, security specialists and much more. So, while some roles require technical skills such as engineering, infrastructure or data, we also seek people with skills and experience in project management, operations, strategy or business analytics.

Ultimately if you adapt to emerging opportunities, enjoy delivering exceptional experiences, and are interested in new technology trends, you could be the perfect fit.
