The backbone of Canstar, the Research team is responsible for over 60 ratings releases annually across banking, insurance and investment product lines in Australia and New Zealand.

In addition to reaching millions of people each month via media, the team of journalists also creates engaging and insightful content for the Canstar website. The Communication team works closely with Research to uncover the products, prices, tips and traps that Australians need to know about their financial products. Helping consumers to make better financial decisions is their passion and it is a fast-paced, creative environment.

Communications team members have:

Only cutting-edge technology is good enough for the Technology team so that consumers can access the complex information they want at the click of a button.

  • Self-motivation, high organisational skill levels, high levels of energy and willingness to be accountable for their own performance
  • A natural ability to engage with people in the above mentioned roles and markets
  • An inner drive, combined with the ability to ‘switch off’ and have fun when the opportunity arises
  • Extremely driven individuals
  • Good at understanding that they are ultimately accountable for their own performance



Our Finance team does some cool things with financial modelling and reporting plus they provide forward-thinking analysis and manage the day-to-day P&L and balance sheet. What’s more, they make sure our people are paid on time. Their spreadsheets are the envy of all at Canstar.

Canstar are always looking for talented people from all academic backgrounds to work in our various teams. We offer a range of positions from experienced professionals to graduates and entry level positions. When looking for potential employees we look for people who have a drive to succeed and a passion for excellence.


Your Opportunity


A financial services background is always useful, how not necessarily essential, depending on the position.  We are more interested in your potential and ability to work in a fast paced environment with energy, vision and innovation.


Know about Canstar before you come for the interview. We are always looking for people who have taken the time to look into our Company and have a real interest in joining our team to make an impact.


Our interview process gives you the opportunity to meet various people across the business and also allows us to access your suitability for a professional and cultural fit.   There are four steps in our recruitment and selection process

  1. Your first interview with us will be a face to face with your direct manager and another team member.  From first round interviews a short list is selected.
  2. The candidates who have made the short list are asked to come back for a second round interview, case study analysis and psychometric testing.  The psychometric testing consists of 3 aptitude tests and a Work Personality Index.  The 3 aptitude tests include verbal, numeric and abstract reasoning.  The case studies are position specific and the second round interview is a further assessment of your culture fit for Canstar.
  3. After the final round of testing and interviews a potential candidate is identified and reference checks are then completed.
  4. When all reference checks are completed satisfactorily an offer is made and we have a new Canstar member.
