AN INNOVATIVE new agreement between Southern Cross University and the National Australia Bank will provide paid cadetships for up to five students a year.
The agreement, announced last Friday at Southern Cross University’s Coffs Harbour campus, will give students in a range of courses the opportunity to apply for the 12-month cadetship program.
The successful students will work in either the Coffs Harbour or Lismore branches of the NAB, where they will undertake a variety of roles and gain experience across the banking business.
Southern Cross University’s vice-chancellor, Professor Peter Lee, welcomed the agreement.
“This is a really exciting announcement. These cadetships will give our students access to paid employment with a national company and the ability to gain diverse experience in the banking industry,” Professor Lee said.
