Rising Transport Stars Program

rising star

This program provides opportunities for selected individuals to get away from their current role and spend some career-changing time developing their business potential while learning ways to improve our company. Equipped with new knowledge and skills specific to the transport industry, they’ll return to their current role ready to impact our business now and for years to come.

This program is an exciting professional development experience for anyone who wants to contribute to the success of our company at an even higher level. The program includes:

• Hands on, practical experience working as part of a team on a range of operations projects.
• Mentoring in problem solving on real business challenges.
• Travel to other branches and assist staff to implement operations improvement initiatives.
• Opportunity to grow professional networks across the branches.
• Undertake suitable internal and external professional development opportunities to improve specific skills.
• Meeting with one of the Essendon Football Club AFL Rising Stars to share career aspirations.

Dave Majetic was selected as our first Border Express Rising Transport Star. Dave was exceptional in all respects and his practical understanding of our operations was a great asset for our Mobile Freight Management project. This was matched with Dave’s flexibility to travel, work odd hours and he brought a strong work ethic. Dave has since gone onto become the Branch Supervisor at our Geelong branch.

In recent times, we have provided micro-opportunities for team members from some of our branches to travel to another branch for several days with a rollout team and gain some hands on experience in a new environment. We are always on the lookout for people who are a role model for others, exhibit dedication to the transport industry and are true examples of promising talent that our business wants to formally recognise and grow.
