Do you have a passion for agriculture and rural products that improve outcomes on-farm?

Do you want to contribute to positive change for rural Australia and make farmers’ lives easier?  Do you like working with different people to solve problems?

The Elders Rural Products Career Development Program is a 12-month entry level program specifically designed to launch your career in rural products sales.

As part of the program, you’ll have the opportunity to work on real jobs, being mentored and guided by Elders’ experienced employees and leaders, to learn and practice effective selling and relationship building techniques that reinforce Elders’ role as partners with its clients.

You will gain a broad understanding of Elders and the agricultural industry, and upon completion of the program, you’ll have all the skills and knowledge necessary to move into a permanent role at Elders.

Program structure

The Elders Rural Products Career Development Program runs for 12 months. The first half of the program focuses on building your foundational understanding of the industry, Elders and branch operations and getting you established within your role. In the second half of the program we will work with you, focusing on farm supplies, animal health and crop protection products, so you can gain more specialised experience.

As the next generation of rural products sales agents, you’ll receive hands-on training, allowing you to apply your learnings to real jobs and to make real contributions. In addition to the guidance you’ll receive from your line manager, you’ll also be assigned a mentor who will support you through the program, providing additional coaching and advice.

You’ll be given the tools, training, and experience to succeed in your career and make a difference to on-farm productivity.
