Wagga Wagga, 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

Our unique mix of agribusiness and processing operations connects grain growers with domestic and international customers, to process grain and oilseeds into food and feed ingredients. As the largest grain storage and handling network on the east coast of Australia, we operate more than 150 regional receival sites and seven bulk port terminals.

We store and market wheat, barley, canola, sorghum and specialty commodities, connecting over 10,000 growers with more than 1,000 end-market customers across the food, beverage, edible oils and animal feed industries. Feeding the world is a big responsibility and partnering with growers and customers to meet this challenge is what drives us to improve and evolve.

About the role

Reporting to the Maintenance Manager, we’re seeking a permanent Maintenance Mechanic to join the team based from our Wagga Wagga workshops. You will have responsibility for servicing, preventative maintenance and breakdown management of various diesel-based mobile equipment including front-end loaders, tractors, large generators, Bobcats, skid steers 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 is a heavy diesel mechanic with 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, progressed 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?

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.
