Our people can be proud that, as a leading international agribusiness, 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. 

Protecting the quality of grain stored across GrainCorp’s expansive network of country and port facilities is a critical responsibility, tasked to our expert and dedicated regional pest control teams.

You have a genuine passion for, or interest in, the grains and wider agricultural industry. You will have an unrestricted driver’s licence, and ideally a H or M class licence.
