Careers

Make your mark in the financial services sector.

For over a century the people of CSC have served—and continue to serve—current and former Australian Government and Australian Defence Force employees, and their families.

As one of Australia’s first superannuation funds, our purpose is to build, support and protect better retirement outcomes for all our customers. Our mission is to be the trusted and valued partner who achieves long-term investment objectives, guides informed retirement decisions, and gives our customers peace of mind that their futures are in safe hands.

We manage 11 government super funds. Over 680,000 Australians trust us to look after $56.7 billion of their retirement savings*.

CSC in our current iteration was established in 2011 as a corporate Commonwealth entity. We operate with a separate legal status and function in a corporate framework as a commercial entity—therefore working at CSC is not a government role/positon.

Join us at CSC and see we all have The drive to make a difference.

United as one

Strive together

Thrive at CSC

At CSC, our diverse workforce of talented people unite to guide our customers to reach their retirement dreams.

Our work makes a real difference to customers’ lives. We are proud to wear the government crest, and proud to serve those who serve our country. Every day we each have the opportunity to contribute and strive for excellence, together.

Super is personal, and so is our approach to one another. We are committed to ensure people at CSC thrive. We create opportunities and nurture our people’s careers, so they lead meaningful and balanced work lives.

If you share these same values, and have the drive to make a difference, we’d welcome you to join us.

How we recruit

The hiring process

The steps below give you an idea of what to expect in applying for a role at CSC. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, contact our Recruitment Team.

What to expect

Step 1: Application

The online application is where you’ll start, provide your details and upload your resume.

Step 2: Phone screening

The phone screening is next, which is a phone call with a Talent Advisor to discuss in more detail your application, motivations for applying and relevant experience.

Step 3: Online assessment

The online assessment is our values questionnaire. This is to get a feel of your alignment with the CSC values.

In addition to the values questionnaire, you may be invited to complete further assessment. These include:

  • Occupational personality questionnaire: it looks to how you like to work and shows us how you see yourself in terms of your personality—for example, the way you relate to others. There are no rights or wrongs when answering the questionnaire, although some behaviours may be more or less appropriate to certain situations.
  • General ability questionnaire: it looks at your ability to carry out various aspects of a job—for example, your verbal reasoning abilities.

To help you prepare for the online assessment, we suggest you take a look at this resource.

Step 4: Interview

You may be invited to one (or more) interviews, in which you’ll answer some behavioural style questions.

Here's how to ace behavioural interview questions and impress your interviewer.

  • Prepare for your interview and do some research on CSC, and express why you are motivated to work at CSC.
  • Be open and engaging in your interview. We suggest using the STAR format and respond to questions using examples of your experience.

Step 5: References

Reference and background checks are conducted at this stage.

Step 6: Offer

And finally, the offer starts with a verbal offer. Upon acceptance of the verbal offer, this will be followed by a written offer and contract.

Other helpful info.

  1. Working at CSC isn’t a government role/position.

    CSC is not a government agency or department.

    We were established in 2011 as a corporate Commonwealth entity an organisation dedicated to serving current and former Australian Government and Australian Defence Force employees, and their families. In total, we manage 11 government superannuation schemes.

    We are proud to wear the government crest, and proud to serve those who serve our country, but we do so by operating with a separate legal status. We function in a corporate framework as a commercial entity, yet are a profit-for-members fund, meaning we only charge fees to cover the cost of operating the fund—we don’t make profit to pay shareholders.

  2. The working rights you will need.

    If you are an Australian citizen, New Zealand citizen, or Australian permanent resident, there are no working restrictions placed on you. We will also consider applicants with a valid visa without working restrictions.

    Check visa details and conditions

  3. Flexible working initiatives.

    We encourage you to shape your work arrangements in ways that work best for your personal circumstances, your manager, your team and our customers.
