Landmark Cadetship Opens Agribusiness Doors

Supplier News

Landmark has launched a new cadetship program, offering a unique avenue into agribusiness for graduates, school-leavers and internal applicants.

The two year cadetships will provide practical work experience within Australia's leading agribusiness, and allow them to continue on with a career in the business and the industry.

Applications for the 2007 intake are now open. Landmark will have intakes annually, with a number of positions available across the country.

As part of the program, participants will rotate roles within Landmark, allowing them to gain experience across different areas of the business such as livestock, wool, grain marketing, finance and real estate.

This experience will be supported by technical training, personal development, business perspective development and progressive on-the-job assessment.

Upon successful completion of the program, cadets will then move into ongoing positions within the company, applying for positions in their preferred area, or continuing with multiple activity exposure leading to operational management.

Landmark General Manager Michael Thomas said the program will enable Landmark to maintain a long-term talent pipeline.

“For participants it is a great opportunity to gain an understanding of the business and to pursue a career within this industry. For Landmark, this program will help build the next generation of business leaders,” Mr Thomas said.

“Landmark has a goal to be the business partner of choice for our clients, and employer of choice for our staff, and we remain committed to putting the best available people into the field,” Mr Thomas said.

Cadetships apply to all parts of the Landmark business and would suit people with a tertiary education, although this is not exclusive and school leavers are eligible to apply.

“The intention is to bring in people who have an affinity for rural areas, good people management skills, are gregarious by nature, hardworking and are interested in a career in agribusiness,” Mr Thomas said.

Cadets will have exposure to management whether it's branch management or state management and will gain a better understanding of what Landmark clients require.

“None of our clients just want to talk about finance for instance, they want to talk about finance for grain marketing, wool, livestock so this program rounds them out and gives a great view of the corporate strategy,” Mr Thomas said.
