Site Manager - North Star

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

North Star, New South Wales, AU

A shared passion for our people.

We put our customers at the centre of everything we do, partnering to deliver greater value. We work together as part of a high-performing team to deliver on what we promise.

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

We are seeking an energetic and mature individual to manage the efficient day-to-day operations of our North Star primary site. The core accountabilities of the site manager position include:

  • Occupational health and safety: managing compliance with GrainCorp’s policies, procedures and systems and driving a ‘zero harm’ safety culture
  • People leadership and development: role modelling GrainCorp’s values; driving increased engagement and capability in team members and administering people processes
  • Business performance: managing and maximising grain volumes, accumulation and availability, stock control and on-site transport
  • Financial performance: working toward targets on outload/inload, $/tonne, road haulage rates and other variable costs; supporting site financial plan
  • Customer relations: developing and maintaining deep relationships with growers, silo committees, the local community and other stakeholders
  • Quality: oversee implementation of site fumigation, pest control and hygiene standards
  • Maintenance: identify and report on maintenance requirements, prepare reports, maintain site presentation and standards.

There are plenty of healthy challenges as a site manager in our country operations network including the annual harvest period where you’ll be managing your permanent team of grain handlers, several harvest casuals and contractors in receiving thousands of tonnes of grain from local growers.

Relocation assistance may be available to the preferred candidate.

About your experience

You may be an experienced site supervisor OR be looking to discover your potential and step up from a senior team member role in agriculture, building and construction, maintenance, technical trades or similar. You are known for consistently role-modelling the behaviours expected of our site managers: collaborative, customer-focused, self-aware and self-driven.

A current unrestricted driver’s licence is essential as are basic computer skills. We’d value any additional training or skills you have in first aid or fumigation and /or additional licences and tickets (eg. forklift, H or M class licence, front-end loader, etc.) but this is 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.

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.
