About the Role

We’re looking for a Plant Operator to join the team at our Napier Works site where we manufacture, process and despatch fertiliser. As a key member of our despatch team you’ll provide our customers with exceptional service and ensure the safe, effective operation of machinery within the despatch plant. By keeping machinery running at optimum levels – and safely – we’re best placed to help our farmers/shareholders, and you’re best placed for a rewarding job with great scope for growth. It’s a job with variety too, as you’ll also be involved in product blending, despatch, handling incoming raw materials and the associated storage.

About You

Given the work environment and nature of the role, it’s essential you’re physically fit, and mechanically-minded. Ideally you’ll be comfortable at the controls of a forklift, but if not, we can provide the training to get you there if you have a positive, can-do attitude.

To be successful in the role you will:

  • Possess manufacturing or process plant experience
  • Enjoy working as part of a team
  • Be physically fit
  • Flexible with night and day shift hours and weekend work
  • Be mechanically minded
  • Good communication skills
  • Have a reasonable level of computer literacy.


For all that you’ll bring, you can expect plenty in return, including:

  • Medical insurance
  • 5% Superannuation
  • Ongoing training
  • Excellent development opportunities across the co-operative
