Hear from some of our past trainees

“The traineeship has allowed me to experience many different places and situations. I have learnt from a range of people with diverse skill sets. The workshops and courses were invaluable in preparing me for my current position. I would strongly suggest anyone with a keen interest in making a career in this industry to apply”

“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.”

“If you are serious about becoming a stock agent you should consider this program as it exposes you to all aspects of the industry as well as giving you access to industry experts”
