“ The trainee program that I have been a part of is one of the best ones running Australia wide. The best part of the program is moving around and meeting new people. This helps you see and experience parts of the business that you would not have had the opportunity to learn without moving.”
“The Elders trainee program is set up for you to succeed and the Elders people are there to help you through the program. The past year of the traineeship has gone very fast, and I learn something new every day. I have been based at some very different branches. The practical hands on learning has made this course extremely rewarding. The mentors that guide you through makes you appreciate the company and all the hard work they put towards trainees. It is a big learning curve and there isn’t a day that you don’t learn anything.”
“The traineeship prepared me for my current role by offering me experience in many different places and situations. I was given the opportunity to learn many aspects of the business from various people with different skill sets. The workshops and other training courses that the traineeship provided me were invaluable in getting me ready for my current position. I would strongly suggest anyone with a keen interest in making a career in this industry to apply for a position as this traineeship has been the most rewarding experience of my life”
