Join us and enjoy a career doing something you love that provides real value to your local community.

Newcastle Permanent is proud to employ nearly 1,000 dedicated staff and have more than 320,000 loyal customers.

We provide financial services, including accounts, home and personal loans, debit and credit cards, and insurance, but we’re not a bank. We’re a mutual building society. The difference being that we’re owned by our customers, not by shareholders. That means profits go back to our customers as better interest rates and competitive fees, and to the communities we operate in through extensive sponsorships and financial grants to good causes.

We aim to help our customers achieve financial success and contribute to the well-being and vibrancy of our community.

JOSH

My name is Josh Hessel I've been in this seat for about seven years.

MICHAEL

JODIE

GEORGE

I'm George. I am in my seat with Newcastle Permanent for almost a year.

DAVE

My name's Dave Harney and I'm the Chief Technology Officer here at Newcastle Permanent. As part of our digital transformation program we're recruiting a range of specialist roles which will join our fast growing and talented IT teams.

FELICITY

My name is Felicity, I'm Chief People Officer, so I look after the employees for the organisation. Our vision is to be the leading retail banking business in Australia. So we're looking for customer-centric people, professional but can also have a bit of sense of fun too. This is your chance to help shape the future of retail banking. 

DAVE

By taking your seat here, even if that sometimes means standing up instead, you'll have the opportunity to work on major strategic projects across the organisation, to digitise key business processes and enhance our customers’ digital banking experience. You'll also be working with the latest technology platforms to enhance our speed to market. 

FELICITY

We live by our values and everything we do is driven by our desire to improve the lives of the customers and the community. For us, being customer owned means that we don't need to generate profits for our shareholders so every dollar that we earn goes back into banking for our customers for the benefit of our customers.

ANTHONY

We get two community leave days a year where we can go out and help the community. Yeah that could be planting trees at the beach it could be, helping the Salvos that sort of thing.

DAVE

I love everything about Newcastle, particularly its beaches. I love the bathes, I love the walks, to go for a ride.

GEORGE

For me, it's easy to commute and great affordability compared to living in a bigger city. You can enjoy the best of both worlds.

FELICITY

We also want to be one of the leading employers in the Hunter. We want our staff to enjoy coming to work every day.

So there's ongoing training; so that starts from day one. We've got an induction process, an on-boarding process. We look after all of our employees and then there's ongoing training, particularly in areas of leadership and so on, too.

JOSH

It gets back to the work life balance. So in Sydney it's kind of hectic and there's thousands of people around and it takes you two hours to get to work and home. Whereas here it's ten minutes and I get to drive along the beach to get to work. It's much more pleasant. It's a great life.

DAVE

It's such an exciting time to join Newcastle Permanent. If you're looking to further your career with a talented IT team in one of the world's best cities come and take a seat and be a part of the digital transformation at Newcastle Permanent.
