NAB has launched a new internship program in an effort to increase the number of female university students pursuing a career in global markets.

The NAB Fixed Income, Currencies and Commodities (FICC) summer internship is part of the bank’s broader gender equality agenda, implemented to improve the representation of women at senior executive levels.

NAB has set its female representation target at 33 per cent for senior roles in 2015, which is a 10 per cent increase on previous years.

Executive general manager, FICC, Drew Bradford, said the company is determined to support and develop female employees.

“The answer is not simply to hire the best women from other institutions; it is to help develop the best women in the industry by providing the right opportunities,” Mr Bradford said.

“Our goal is to assist students with gaining experience, making contacts, and building their understanding of the industry. We would hope that these interns will then apply for the NAB Graduate Program at the end of their academic studies.”

The internship will afford students experience in the foreign exchange, interest rates and bonds and commodities areas, he said.

Mr Bradford concludes that the internship is an “opportunity to gain work experience, make professional contacts and determine personal interest in a future career in global markets”.
