Leading agriculture network Viterra is seeking to fill 40 diverse and varied operational roles across southern Australia, from entry level to leadership positions.
Applications are now open for the jobs, which are available in each of Viterra’s regions across the upper and lower Eyre Peninsula, mid north, Murraylands, Adelaide Ports and western Victoria.
Viterra General Manager Human Resources, Alyson Gilbey says Viterra’s operational staff enjoy active, collaborative work, local travel and a strong safety culture.
“We’re looking for people who want to learn new skills and make their mark in a safe and supportive environment at our grain storage and handling sites,” Alyson says.
“Our operator positions are hands-on and there’s little to no time at a desk for people who enjoy working outdoors. Successful applicants will work across a variety of tasks such as testing and assessing grain, operating machinery to help trucks unload or load grain and working at different areas around site performing general tasks such as cleaning.
“We also have a diverse range of leadership roles available. Our site supervisors play a key role in the first steps of our global food supply chain, working with local colleagues and ensuring we safely receive, store and move the grain growers deliver to our sites.
“Whether you have agriculture experience or you’re new to the industry, we’d love to hear from you. We can offer you a fulfilling and rewarding career with access to all the support, training and tools you need to succeed, with opportunities for career progression and growth.”
Viterra Operations Coordinator Thevenard region, Renee Dale started with the business as a seasonal worker in the 2017/18 harvest. Progressing through the organisation from an operator to Team Leader, Assistant Supervisor and Supervisor, into her current leadership position, Renee says she feels a great deal of pride in her work.
“When you work across Viterra’s operations, you’re dealing with local growers’ businesses and livelihoods. You receive grain from the local farms and then help to send it all around the globe to feed people, it’s really incredible to be a part of,” Renee says.
“Throughout the years I have developed new skills, and received formal qualifications with Viterra to help me get to where I am now in the business. I’ve progressed my career with support from everyone I’ve worked with along the way.
“One of my favourite things about working for Viterra is being able to work with such a diverse group of people, especially at harvest. We have a real mix of ages, nationalities and interests, all interacting and banding together to get the job done. It’s also a real team feeling all year round.
“I’d recommend a career at Viterra to anyone considering applying for one of these roles. You’ll work with a great group of people with the opportunity to grow your skills and advance your career.”
Viterra offers career development opportunities in the regional communities in which it operates. Viterra’s dedicated workforce consists of around 1000 permanent and ongoing employees in Australia, joined by 1500 seasonal workers across South Australia and Victoria each harvest.
