Shape a more equitable future with a customer-owned bank.

Putting people and planet first, now that's brave

Summerland Bank has a long track record of creating meaningful employment opportunities for locals in the Northern Rivers NSW and South East Queensland communities.

At Summerland Bank, we believe that providing high-quality customer experience is an inside job, meaning our team is well cared for, so that they are best placed to care for our customers. Summerland Bank strives to be a great employer and an example to other businesses in our region, showing how to be a purpose-led business and create meaningful employment opportunities for locals.  At Summerland, we aim to service and strengthen a community that is equitable, cares for one another, and believes in the power of the collective. 

The Summerland Way

Joining a local and customer-owned bank like Summerland has never been easier, nor more important. Because in a world that seems to be increasingly focused on helping yourself, we will never stop helping others, and supporting our local community.

Equal Opportunity Employer

At Summerland, we take immense pride in embodying the spirit of an equal opportunity employer. Our commitment to gender equity is more than a statement; it’s woven into the very fabric of our business. We actively seek to welcome individuals from diverse backgrounds, including but not limited to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples, those from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) people, and individuals with disabilities. Our belief in fostering an inclusive workplace goes beyond words – it’s a pledge to embrace the richness that diversity brings, ensuring every individual has the opportunity to thrive and contribute their unique perspectives to the Summerland family.

The essentials — what you need to know

The team at Summerland Bank is, and always has been, an extension of our community. From the kind, knowledgeable, and approachable staff in our branches, to the talented and friendly customer service representatives over the phone, we exist to serve and strengthen our local community, and to look out for one another with care and compassion.

We believe that providing high-quality customer service is an inside job. That means making sure our team is well cared for and supported, because only then, can they care for our customers and the planet we all share.

Vibrant and caring culture

Our team culture is as vibrant as the communities we serve. An environment where collaboration meets innovation, and where your contributions are not only valued but celebrated, we create a nurturing space for our people to grow both personally and professionally.

Generous entitlements

At Summerland Bank, we take wellbeing to the next level with generous leave entitlements and perks that make work feel less like a job and more like a rewarding career. With team celebrations, staff conferences, and even special discounts on our banking products — these are just some of the ways we say ‘thank you’ for your dedication and hard work.

Flexible and hybrid work

We support our team to foster work-life balance and offer a range of flexible work arrangements such as part-time employment, remote and hybrid work. We also offer tailored return to work programs for those coming back from parental leave or sick leave, and reduced working hours leading up to retirement.

Professional development

With a dedicated Learning and Development Specialist, we offer vast opportunities for skill-building and career advancement. We love promoting from within and have devoted efforts to developing management skills for staff with leadership ambitions.

Paid volunteer leave

A thriving community is central to Summerland Bank’s vision and benchmark for success. In fact, contributing to the local community is so important to us that you get paid to do it! Team members can access several paid days a year to volunteer to causes they care about and give back to the community.

Embracing diversity

We want to lead the way with a braver banking alterative, not just for customers but for all of our stakeholders, which includes our team. We’re not perfect, but we are always working toward prioritizing safety and inclusion. That is why many of our branches have gender-neutral and wheelchair accessible facilities, and why we will continue implementing these changes across all of our locations into the future.
