Meet our people


In the graduate programme I was able to rotate among the different compliance departments. That allowed me to make an informed choice about what direction I wanted to take.


Macquarie is non-hierarchal, it’s a very flat structure, senior members of risk are very approachable, very friendly, they encourage you to ask questions.  


While my colleagues’ backgrounds are highly varied, their common traits are that they’re smart, innovative and committed.
