Rowley, Darren

Together we build stronger relationships. We put our customers at the center of everything we do, partnering to deliver greater value. We work together as part of a high-performing team to deliver on what we promise.

GrainCorp is a leading international agribusiness and food-ingredients processor, with a diverse range of operations that span four continents and supply customers in over 30 countries.

We’re proud of our growing grain origination footprint and supply chain offering in Canada, which continues to deliver more choice and more competition for Canadian grain producers.

About our team

GrainCorp operates in Canada as GrainCorp Malt (the fourth largest maltster in the world) and as GrainCorp Grains. Through a strategic joint venture with Zen-Noh Grain Corporation, GrainsConnect, GrainCorp Grains has established and continue to build on a fully-integrated supply chain that connects GrainCorp’s origination operations with the existing global demand of both companies.

GrainCorp Grains’ trading office plays a crucial role in supporting our joint venture, managing the origination process into the supply chain, with new delivery points strategically positioned to best service the grain producing regions of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.

About the role

As a GrainCorp Merchant you will be a critical link between local grain growers, Canada’s most efficient supply chain and GrainCorp’s global trading team.

Working closely with the GrainCorp trading team and the GrainsConnect logistics team, you will be responsible for building and deepening relationships with local growers, procuring grain from those growers, and promoting and educating growers on our supply chain.

Specifically, you will:

  • Procure grain from growers on behalf of GrainCorp per price specs and in support of our ex-farm supply chain strategy
  • Promote the GrainsConnect storage network with its state of the art elevators and highly efficient loop tracks to attract more growers into our sites and support strategies to enhance our brand and offer
  • Develop and deepen relationships with industry professionals including agronomists, brokers, agents and suppliers
  • Manage production estimates forecasting utilising GrainCorp’s methodology of crop forecasting
  • Provide relevant, concise and timely information to stakeholders by way of competitor pricing and activity, grower selling behavior and crop conditions
  • Represent GrainCorp at grower meetings and relevant industry events.

About your experience

First and foremost, you’re passionate about agribusiness and have some good experience in this sector. Your knowledge of the grain industry and market drivers will set you apart.

You’re known for your integrity and strong work ethic – important traits that will support you to build and deepen grower and stakeholder relationships. A valid driver’s licence and the ability and willingness to travel frequently within your region is essential.

Together we realise our potential. At GrainCorp, we value and respect the different perspectives and experiences our people bring to work each day. 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. We aim to have a work environment where everyone feels included and everyone can realise their full potential.
