At Macquarie, hybrid working empowers us to work together flexibly, balancing time spent working in the office and at home. Our shift to hybrid working is an extension of our long-standing commitment to flexible working.

We are a people business. We build relationships and learn from each other. Our approach to hybrid working enables us to balance the needs of our clients, colleagues and teams, taking advantage of the benefits of coming together in person and increased flexibility.

Each of our groups has different needs so expectations for hybrid working are set on a group and team basis. Some groups may require employees to work from the office more frequently than others. At any stage in the recruitment process, your recruiter or prospective line manager will be able to discuss your team's approach to hybrid working with you, and so you may raise this at any point during your application.

Remote working means working from your usual place of residence. Macquarie has policies that deal specifically with requests to work from an alternate location. Please discuss these policies with your recruiter should this apply to you.

  1. Dates are subject to change.
  2. You must be an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or New Zealand citizen to be eligible for our Graduate Program.
