Auction site careers

We conduct hundreds of live unreserved auctions each year. They’re big, exciting events that attract huge crowds of people from around the world.

It takes a hardworking team of energetic people in a wide variety of full-time and part-time roles to conduct a successful multi-million dollar auction – from equipment inspectors, yard managers and operators to administrative staff and customer service representatives. And, of course, auctioneers.
