Alternative titles for this job

Auctioneers take charge of public or private auctions. They sell goods, property or livestock on behalf of the owner (or vendor) to people offering the highest price.


Auctioneers usually get paid on commission, so how much they earn depends on the value of sales at the auctions they conduct.

Job opportunities

Chances of getting a job as an auctioneer are poor because the occupation is small, and demand is falling.
