We are committed to making our products, services, workplace and culture welcoming and supportive of people with a disability. ANZ understands that disability is relevant to every aspect of our business – customers, employees, markets, communities, suppliers and key stakeholders.
Our commitment to accessibility
Our commitment to strengthening the financial wellbeing of all Australians is reflected in our ongoing work to build a more accessible and inclusive bank for our customers, employees and community.
Members of our passionate and proactive community of accessibility champions, drawn from all areas of ANZ, collaborate to identify and address barriers to independent, convenient and dignified banking, and to foster an inclusive workplace culture which embraces diversity and all abilities. Through innovation and ongoing consultation with a wide range of community stakeholders, we strive for greater economic and social participation for people with disability.

The Valuable 500
ANZ Abilities Network
ANZ is committed to creating an inclusive and accessible bank for our customers and our staff. The ANZ Abilities Network is an important element of this commitment- through harnessing the unique perspectives of employees with disabilities, and their allies, we can continue to ensure ANZ’s products, services and facilities are accessible for all.
Established in 2005, the Abilities Network is a collection of volunteer employees from all over ANZ, who work together to advocate for better ways to support our people and customers who experience disability.
The network aims to foster inclusiveness and diversity, raise awareness of disability and accessibility, and represent employees on issues relating to disability.
ANZ Spectrum Program
The ANZ Spectrum Program is a commitment to recognising the talents of autistic people in shaping a workplace where they can thrive. By providing a supportive employment environment we hope to empower autistic people to build greater independence and thriving careers at ANZ and beyond.
As part of the Program we use a non-traditional recruitment process, designed to meet the needs of people on the autism spectrum.
Our first group of talented individuals started in February 2018 and were trained in cyber security, coding and testing roles. Since then our program has grown to include data services.
If you join the program, you will receive tailored training and support to help you settle into the workplace and develop your career within ANZ and beyond.
Another key part of the Program includes autism awareness training to ANZ employees so that you are supported by your people leader in the best way possible.
