Vertical Farming - Monarto, South Australia

We have an exciting opportunity for a Maintenance Planner to join a small and supportive team at our category leading Mushroom farm, based in Monarto, South Australia.  Monarto is about 50 minutes’ drive from Adelaide CBD, 25 minutes from Mount Barker and 5 minutes from Murray Bridge.

Reporting to the Facilities Manager you will be responsible for daily Maintenance Planning activities for our site that produces quality mushrooms, 365 days of the year.  To consistently meet our targets, we need to ensure that routine maintenance activities are well planned and managed amongst other day to day requirements that may include fault finding, addressing breakdowns and ensuring that the facility is running at optimal capacity at all times.

The Maintenance Planner is responsible for ensuring that the right equipment and parts are available to the team to deliver on their job orders.  This includes ordering and maintaining the right amount of spare parts, tracking deliveries and receipting of good for the team.  The ability to build strong relationships with suppliers, contractors and the rest of the team is essential.

The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual who provides a positive influence to the team with the ability to think fast and outside the box to find solutions.  Experience using MEX or other Maintenance planning and tracking software is essential, along with the desire to find improvements for the site's continued success.

Ideally, you will have a mechanical or electrical trade background that will allow you to understand the equipment and work requirements for the team.  Required licensing include C Class drivers license and current forklift license would be well regarded but not essential.

Please note weekend work and public holidays may be required. Call outs and out of hours work may also be required from time to time.
