AuctionsPlus Cadetship

The AuctionsPlus Cadetship is designed to give the recipient hands-on experience in an agribusiness in the beef supply chain. During the cadetship, the cadet will experience the day-to-day operations within AuctionsPlus and develop a unique understanding of how the business works and the central role of the platform in driving innovation within the agricultural industry.

The cadet will be given all the tools to develop an appetite for further learning and understanding of the workplace and operations at AuctionsPlus.

The cadetship will take place over a four-week period, with the recipient working with AuctionsPlus in their Sydney office for the duration of the program.
