About our team

What did you have for breakfast today? Whether it’s the flour in your toast or the grain in your cereal, it’s highly likely that GrainCorp helped get it onto your plate!  As we find new ways to connect rural communities with food, animal feed and industrial customers around the world, we are proud to say we’re leading the way in sustainable agriculture.

About the role

Reporting to the Northern NSW Maintenance Supervisor, we’re seeking a permanent Maintenance 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.

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 as well as:

  • Proven fault-finding capabilities, proactive and safety focused
  • Basic computer literacy and good communication skills
  • Capacity to work at heights and within confined spaces
  • Willing to travel frequently and live away from home periodically
  • Bonus: 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.
