A shared passion for our people.

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

Our vision is to be a leading service provider, in partnership with our customers, of port terminal services for the import and export of grain and non-grain products. GrainCorp operates seven of the ten bulk export grain elevators (with a further one under construction) in eastern Australia.

The export elevators handle wheat, barley, canola, chickpeas, and sorghum. These are delivered by both rail and road, from GrainCorp and third-party storages, as well as direct from on-farm storage.

About the role

Reporting to the Maintenance Manager SNSW, the Maintenance Supervisor Port Kembla Terminal leads a team of permanent tradespeople and contractors at this facility.

You’ll coach and develop individuals as well as role-modelling a culture of continuous improvement and high standards of safety in keeping with GrainCorp’s core values.

Specifically, the role entails:

  • Preventative and planned maintenance (PPM): establish and monitor schedule, ensuring completion to timeframes / quality; includes regular reporting and completion to budget
  • Maintenance: manage open work orders to completion; prioritise jobs to business requirements and budget
  • Breakdowns: manage response to breakdowns, especially those impacting service levels; resource allocation; records management; fatigue management during critical breakdown repairs; manage supply of critical parts
  • Budget: ensure maintenance spend in line with budget; support for maintenance labour spend; escalate high cost repairs to Maintenance Manager
  • Continuous improvement: develop a team culture that ensures continuous improvement is adopted by all maintenance employees; maintain operational and strategic plan for site maintenance.

About your experience

Our ideal candidate holds a trade certificate in a relevant discipline (electrical, fitting / machining, boiler-making for example) along with solid hands-on experience in that field in a commercial / industrial setting. You should additionally have some experience in planning and scheduling maintenance activities, ideally through known systems such as SAP. If from an electrical background, then exposure to high voltage networks and EKA control systems would be an advantage.

You’ll have some demonstrated experience managing people or workflows. Experience or understanding of managing a maintenance budget would be very useful.

Finally, a strong continuous improvement mindset and strong safety leadership behaviours will be welcome.

In addition to providing proof of working rights and suitable professional referees, preferred candidates will be required to undertake a pre-employment medical.
