Join the T-Ports team – Kara

I love working at T-Ports because it’s a fun environment and every day is different.  The company is only going to expand its operations with time, so the learning experiences and job opportunities will expand too.

I started my T-Ports journey as a harvest casual in October 2019 with no knowledge of grain or the industry.  I had good training before harvest began and I was surrounded by fellow employees who had the knowledge to help me as harvest gained momentum. 

T-Ports has provided me with a range of skills in all areas of operations and I work across different areas of the business from one day to the next.

All the support I had during training has gotten me to where I am today. I’m always learning new things and every day is different. 

I’m now a permanent full-time employee as a grain storage general hand and an Authorised Officer (AO).  As an AO, I play an important role in Australia’s export of plants and plant products such as wheat and barley. 

T-Ports paid for me to be trained and assessed by the Australian Government’s Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment to perform a range of export functions on its behalf, and the company supported me in my studies to get this qualification.

As AOs, we work to ensure the export of our commodities is safe, trusted, and free of biosecurity risks, which helps maintain Australia’s reputation as an exporter of quality goods.

Working at T- Ports has opened so many opportunities and new friendships for me. It’s a great place to work – come and join us!
