Why Choose Professional Cadetships?

For Year 12 Students

Open to current Year 12 students, Professional Cadetships provide unparalleled opportunities. As a Cadet, you combine study at the university of your choice with paid work at a leading company.

"A cadetship works hand-in-hand with your university studies. You undertake university study and work together, rather than just studying at university before you start work."

Nicola Willmette, 3rd Year Investment Banking Operations Cadet, UBS

"The cadetship gives you a big head start on your peers at university: by the time they graduate, you are three to four years ahead of them in experience."

Nick Yule, 4th Year Global Markets Cadet, UBS

"Working at Barrenjoey is a life-changing opportunity. I’ve met some incredible people, I’m working alongside the best in the industry, and I am constantly learning every single day."

Meira Jackson, 2nd Year Research Cadet, Barrenjoey

"A cadetship provides you with the opportunity to be one moment sitting in a university lecture and in the next moment be applying what you learn to the real world of work."

Farzam Zaher, 2nd Year Research Cadet, Barrenjoey
