The Angus Foundation is pleased to announce the development of a new Industry Cadetship Program, with applications now open for Angus Youth members to access a cadetship opportunity with online marketplace, AuctionsPlus.
The Angus Foundation prides itself on continuing to expand the programs it can offer to encourage and assist the involvement of young people in the Australian beef industry and to provide a vast array of professional development opportunities for young beef breeders.
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 day to day operations within AuctionsPlus and develop a unique understanding of how the business works and the important role they play in global food production.
The cadet will be given all the tools to develop an appetite for further learning and understanding of the workplace and the operations AuctionsPlus carries out.
The cadetship will take place over a four-week period, with the recipient working with AuctionsPlus in their day-to-day operations.
Following their placement, the recipient will conclude their cadetship by completing the Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Course, which takes place 31st of August to the 2nd of September.
Angus Australia Extension Manager Jake Phillips is incredibly excited to launch this cadetship, citing the value it will add to the personal development of a young member of the beef industry.
“Working with AuctionsPlus in bringing this program and opportunity to life for Angus Youth members provides development opportunities for a young person working within one of the many professions that people can have in the agricultural industry. It gives them a chance to work with peers who have developed their careers within the industry, build on their networks and actually get a tangible experience working within the industry.
Not only that, but the cadetship also provides them the opportunity to further their qualifications through the Marcus Oldham Rural Leadership Course, which is obviously a hugely renowned agricultural and business management college.
We hope that through our cadetship program, our recipients have doors opened for them into the ag industry across some of the leading companies in the beef industry, which is so important to ensure that our industry thrives by encouraging our younger generation, cementing its assurance into the future.”
Gregory McNeill, People & Culture Partner, AuctionsPlus shared his organisations enthusiasm for the upcoming cadetship.
“AuctionsPlus is proud to partner with the Angus Foundation to give the next generation of Angus Youth hands-on experience within the Agriculture Industry. We’re excited to share that we are offering the opportunity for a 4-week cadetship in AuctionsPlus to help provide valuable insight into Australia’s Digital Ag Market.”
“The successful cadet will learn the ins and outs of our business, as well as gain an understanding as to the role and opportunities for digital agriculture. Working across our business you will be exposed to multiple areas that will help you get an understanding of some of the opportunities in agriculture today. We can’t wait to see the applications and we look forward to meeting the successful applicant in the near future.”
