About Macquarie

A career at Macquarie means you’ll have the opportunity to develop and utilise new skills, explore interesting fields and do challenging work that will impact the lives of people around the world—whether it’s accelerating the green energy transition, helping sustain global food supplies, financing social housing projects or investing in essential infrastructure. At Macquarie, we’re empowering people to innovate and invest for a better future.

Our size and international presence means your work can take you anywhere—across business groups, disciplines, sectors and borders. With 16,000+ employees and offices in 32 markets around the world, we’re a truly global organisation.

You’ll be encouraged to examine problems from every angle, challenge the status quo and come up with new and innovative ways of progressing our business while being supported by a diverse team. We know success comes from encouraging our people to think differently so regardless of your level, if you have ideas that have merit, we’ll give you the opportunity to develop and test them to see where they can lead.

Joining our team, you’ll be empowered to address unmet needs in our communities as we advise and invest alongside our clients and partners. You’ll also be encouraged to give back through the Macquarie Group Foundation which provides support to hundreds of community organisations each year through financial support, volunteering and skills sharing. Working with us, you’ll have the opportunity to make a difference.

We know it’s the unique perspectives, ideas and experiences that all of our people bring that have contributed to the success of our organisation. With our people representing 68 nationalities and speaking more than 70 languages, we focus on inclusiveness and respect. No matter your background, we’re united by our focus on excellence and innovation.

Macquarie is a global financial group providing clients with asset management, retail and business banking, wealth management, leasing and asset financing, market access, commodity trading, renewables development, specialist advisory, capital raising and principal investment.

Families and carers

We aim to ensure all our people have the tools and opportunities to build diverse and exciting careers that adapt and reflect the changes in their personal lives. We support our employees through their parental leave with benefits enabling them to successfully transition to life as a working parent on their return.

We offer paid parental leave as well as varied initiatives such as backup child, adult and eldercare, nursing mothers’ facilities and return-to-work coaching for parents.

Our global return-to-work rate after parental leave was 97% in FY2021.


We empower all of our people to manage their professional commitments to suit their own personal situation and equip our people managers to lead a flexible workforce.

Because we recognise that working flexibly means different things to different people, flexible working at Macquarie exists in many forms, and could include changes to hours, locations and patterns of work, study and exam leave or leave without pay.

Gender balance

We are committed to achieving gender balance at all levels across our organisation. Our focus continues to be on developing the internal and external female talent pipeline at both junior and senior levels and enhancing recruitment processes to facilitate this. Actions being taken to increase the diversity of our pipeline include a full review of our regional recruitment processes to ensure that we both attract more applications from women and hire more at all levels. We continue to maintain gender equity and transparency in all our remuneration, promotion and development practices.

Promoting careers in finance to young women continues to be a focus to ensure we are building the long-term sustainability of our talent pipeline. We sponsor female university societies and promote financial services careers to female school students to motivate and empower girls to consider a broad range of career paths.
