Frequently Asked Questions

What does GrainCorp look for in a Graduate?

Our standards are high and we’re particularly interested in well-rounded applicants. We’re looking for people who are team players, commercially astute and customer-focused. It’s not just about a great academic record.

Do I need to have work experience to apply?

There is no requirement for you to have had any relevant work experience. However, if you have, we do ask that you include any work experience on your resume, including casual or part-time roles.

I am a mature aged student, can I still apply?

Yes, we strongly encourage mature aged students to apply. At GrainCorp, we value the diverse thinking that is borne from the variety of experiences, capabilities, insights and perspectives that our people bring to work with them every day. So, no matter what stage of life you’re in or how much work experience you have had, so long as you meet the eligibility criteria, we’d love to hear from you.

Will I need to travel during the program?

To ensure that you receive the most diverse and exciting experience as possible, you may need to spend time at some of our regional sites. Be prepared to travel or relocate. 

I have applied but haven’t heard back from GrainCorp yet, what should I do?

We aim to get back to you within two weeks; however, it may take us a little longer than this, depending on the volume of applications. Please feel free to contact us at and a dedicated member of GrainCorp’s Recruitment team will respond to your enquiry.
