Employment Type:  Permanent (Full Time)
Business Area:  Operations & Commercial
Division:  Operations

Narrabri, New South Wales, AU

A shared passion for our people.

Our people can be proud that, as a leading international agri-business, we provide an increasingly important service across the food and beverage supply chain.

About our team

GrainCorp connects more than 10,000 grain growers with local and international customers via Australia’s largest silo network, with a storage capacity of over 20 million tonnes, seven bulk port elevators and two specialty port terminals. Innovation, integration and partnership are the foundations on which we are growing into our second century with customers at the heart of all that we do. 

About the role

Position offered under our current enterprise bargaining agreement, details of which can be found here.

Reporting to the Northern NSW Maintenance Supervisor, we’re seeking a permanent Diesel Mechanic to join the team based from our Narrabri workshop, with responsibility for servicing, preventative maintenance and breakdown management of various diesel-based mobile equipment including front-end loaders, tractors, Bobcats, generators as well as some fixed equipment.

Whilst some of your work will be workshop-based, regular travel in the region is required to undertake repairs and servicing on-site.

Specifically, you’ll be responsible for:

  • Vehicle and equipment diagnostics, fault-finding and repairs
  • Engine, steering, transmission and braking systems repair, replacement and checks
  • Preventative maintenance on vehicles and equipment
  • Maintenance of parts inventory and workshop cleanliness.

About your experience

Our ideal candidate has a relevant trade certificate in diesel or automotive mechanics. You will have proven fault-finding capabilities and be proactive and safety focused. Computer literate, self-motivated and reliable, you’ll have solid time management abilities and a high standard of communication.

The ability to work at heights and within confined spaces is required. A HR licence would be preferred, but not essential.

In addition to providing proof of working rights and suitable professional referees, preferred candidates will be required to undertake a pre-employment medical. A current, valid driver’s licence is also required.

Do you share our passion for contributing to the success of a diverse, international team?

At GrainCorp, we value and respect the different perspectives and experiences our people bring to work each day. We aim to increase the diversity of our workforce – leading to a range of different thinking, perspectives and ideas that create the innovation we need to drive better business results. We aim to have a work environment where everyone feels included and everyone can realise their full potential.
