Our flexible, inclusive, and adaptable ways of working support you and provide our people with the opportunity to work with authenticity, belonging and work-life balance.
Flexible work locations to suit your unique needs.
At Defence Bank we value our employees unique needs and embrace flexible working arrangements. Where possible, employees are encouraged to work from a location that best suits their individual ways of working. Defence Bank offers a number of 'work from anywhere roles' and actively promote a positive work/life balance.
We are people-led, and technology-enabled, so that our people can seamlessly work remotely, whether in a home office, a coffee shop, our support office, or one of the multiple exciting branches located on Australian Defence Force bases - we really do mean it when we say anywhere!
Modern support office championing hybrid ways of working.
Our newly refurbished support office is a vibrant and welcoming space that champions flexibility and hybrid ways of working.
Designed in 2021, it features innovative design, activity-based workspaces and state-of-the-art technology. The purpose-built space focuses on enhancing the connection, productivity and wellbeing or our people.
The support office reflects post-2020 health and safety requirements with the implementation of touchless automatic doors and facilities, open office space, hand-sanitising stations and an abundance of natural light.
We understand that our people have varying work styles and through the adoption of activity-based work spaces, the office provides them with the right technology and environment to carry out their activities effectively.
Although employees can come into support office to complete core functions of their role, we encourage them to use in office time to focus on collaborative meetings and activities. These include team meetings, connection activities, brainstorming and innovation sessions, planning activities and working groups.
Located on Level 10, 31 Queen Street Melbourne, our support office provides stunning panoramic views of the Yarra River and surrounds and includes many everyday conveniences.
The building provides access to car park, change rooms, hair dryers, hair straighteners, ironing stations, showers, toilets, day use lockers, and secure bike parking facilities.
Exciting branch locations.
Defence Bank has 32 branches across Australia, with most of them located on Australian Defence Force bases, allowing you to be part of the Defence community and have a close connection to our bank’s purpose.
Branch positions vary with a combination of Member Consultants, Senior Member Consultants, Branch Managers and Mobile Lenders.
Many of our branch teams are defence spouses and the bank works to support their individual work/life balance. Our work from anywhere policy provides greater opportunities for our team to learn varied roles and manage member requests from across the nation. It also assists us to work together with employees to help them transfer if there serving spouse is deployed to another base at which we have a branch so that you can continue your meaningful career even if your partner is relocated.

Flexible working feeds my energy when I’m around others in the office and allows me to work productively when I’m at home with time to focus and create. Best of all it helps me to have a great work-life balance.
