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 our experienced employees and leaders. You'll learn and practice effective selling and relationship building techniques that reinforce our role as partners with our clients.
You will gain a broad understanding of how we and the broader agricultural industry operates. Upon completion of the program, you’ll have all the skills and knowledge necessary to move into a permanent role with us.
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.
