Life at Gateway

Gateway’s working environment is open, friendly and collaborative. So does that translate to Gateway being a good employer? If our own employees are to be believed it does! Our Employee Satisfaction score has been over 90% for the past five years. We foster an environment in which employees can contribute and make a difference. And what a difference our staff efforts make…we take pride in our exceptional Member satisfaction and award-winning products. We are united in our desire to provide outstanding service and products that will help us to be the most trusted financial partner to our Members.

Small is the New Big

At Gateway individual roles have a broader scope, with the ability to influence change and see ideas come to life. Small provides flexibility to be responsive. We can develop ideas and see them through to completion without 300 meetings. Plus we value a sense of humour and have fun along the way. We trust, respect and support fellow employees and operate as a team. That’s why we strive to hire new recruits who will bring not only their technical expertise but who will be a good fit for the business overall. This is reflected in our thorough screening practices.

Staff Testimonials

  Gerald Nicholls, Chief Risk Officer

Gateway is like a mid-sized yacht. Course changes are simple, planned and properly executed. A big bank is a large ship responding very slowly to the helm, if at all. Politics are manageable within a smaller institution. People care more about the quality of their work, take more ownership. 

As a mid-sized organisation, hard work is recognised and rewarded. I initially started at Gateway Bank in the role of Senior Manager, Credit & Operational Risk, after some time with the organisation I was promoted to Chief Risk Officer. I’ve now got more opportunity and involvement in plotting our future course and watching the horizon.”

Gerald Nicholls, Chief Risk Officer

  Nicole Manuel, Lending Coordinator

Coming from a larger bank to Gateway was a major game changer for me but I can definitely say it has been for the better. At Gateway, you are a 'name' not a 'number'.  Everyone gets to know each other and we all work towards a common goal. Staff are valued, encouraged and motivated.”

  Zeb Drummond, Senior Manager – Customer Care

I first came to Gateway as Sales Manager for an opportunity to expand my field of influence whilst driving great results for customers. We built a positive sales and service culture with a team of self-starters and I have since moved to the role of Senior Manager – Customer Care. In this role I am responsible for ensuring a great customer outcome through Gateway’s Transactional and Lending Services teams. Those devoted to their jobs receive regular reward and recognition. I really appreciate the closeness of our workplace, especially the culture of continual improvement and learning. Every day is different.”
