Macquarie Bank Information Service Division Profiles

By Macquarie Bank

Claire Graham

Information Services Division
I joined Macquarie because it was a highly successful global organisation, and its graduate program was renowned. I was sure I would be working in a motivated and innovative team and would learn a great deal – which I have.
Every team at Macquarie has the knowledge and experience to get the job done in an efficient and innovative way. Everyone is given the freedom to create their own success and when success and excellence are achieved, they are celebrated.
My team is responsible for Macquarie’s Intel Server Infrastructure, which consists of more than 1000 servers worldwide. A typical day includes reviewing the server fleet monitoring reports, and troubleshooting any problems. Working on the public key infrastructure project was particularly satisfying. It was a challenge to learn new technologies and concepts from scratch, and very rewarding to see the project fully implemented.

I joined Macquarie a year ago as part of a team supporting the Investment Banking Group’s document management system. We recently completed a system-wide upgrade to our servers and client applications, the biggest project to be implemented since the introduction of this system into the Group. For me, the most enjoyable aspect of the project was travelling to other Macquarie offices: I visited London, New York, Toronto, Perth and Auckland to help manage the rollout of the upgraded system.
There is a great sense of achievement and satisfaction when you are working on a large project that involves many people from the business as well as several key IT teams. The great thing about my role is that you never know what is around the corner. New and very different projects always come up as the business grows. Macquarie’s dynamic nature ensures that you are always working with different people in ever-changing roles.

Almost every day, Macquarie is producing innovative products and deals for its clients. Having the right IT is critical to this, so every day brings new opportunities for me. I am a business analyst on a large equities trading systems project, and sit with the business to understand and document their needs and problems.
As Macquarie is now a global business, there are opportunities to expand your knowledge and experience offshore. I recently spent a year in Hong Kong working on two equities trading projects, and visited Macquarie colleagues in our Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and UK offices.
I believe Macquarie recognises that its staff members all have aspirations. It has a very strong culture of encouraging us to take control of our careers and seize opportunities whenever and wherever they may be.

Information Services Division
I had only been working in the Networks team for about six months when I was given the responsibility of coordinating a review of our domain name system (DNS) infrastructure. My knowledge of this set-up was limited, and I was required to chair meetings involving those much more senior and experienced than me. I learnt a lot, not only about the technology, but also about how to manage projects.

There is never a boring or slow day at Macquarie. The work is fast-paced and there are always a lot of things to do. I would like to move into a technical project management role in the future, and working overseas is also something I would like to do. Macquarie encourages you to take the initiative to progress your career and development. There is always support for undertaking courses or additional studies that are relevant to what you are doing.
