Ashburton Grain & Seed Warehouse Position

Cates were one of the first independent grain and seed companies in Mid Canterbury and are proud to be celebrating our 50th anniversary this year.  We specialise in the production and marketing of clover, cereals, grasses, pulses and brassicas for both domestic and international markets.

Due to continued growth and expansion, we are looking to fill a position in our Ashburton grain and seed warehouse.

Reporting to the Warehouse Manager your duties will include serving farmer clients, forklift operation, handling and mixing of seed, maintaining our agri-chemical warehouse and general warehouse duties.

The successful applicant will have customer contact, so a friendly and efficient manner is essential.

Applicants will need to be physically fit with a positive attitude and be able to work well in a small friendly team environment.

Knowledge of the grain and seed industry and a current forklift license would be an advantage, but not necessary as full training will be given.
