Our People

To understand the variety of opportunities available at Teys Australia meet five of our employees who have shared their career stories.

Brianna – Business Administration Trainee (Tamworth)

‘I’m currently completing my Certificate III in Business Administration at Teys at Tamworth. I came across the opportunity through the school careers board. I’ve been at Teys now for seven months which has been a great experience, I enjoy the people I work with and the positive atmosphere.’

Mathew – School-Based Trainee – Meat Processing (Beenleigh)

‘I went to school at Beenleigh High, and graduated in November 2019. I found out about an opportunity for a
school-based traineeship with Teys at Beenleigh through the school. They had the application details on the website and on the notice boards. I applied for the traineeship while I was in year 11 and started working at Teys one day a week until I finished my year 12 certificate and could work full-time. I really like the people I work with at the site, I’ve learned new things through the traineeship and I enjoy working in the plant.’

Cobus – Electrical/Fitter Apprentice (Wagga Wagga)

‘I was working as a production worker when Teys advertised internally for first year fitter and electrical apprentices, enabling myself and others the opportunity to apply for the position. I was in the production team for approximately 9 months before taking up the apprenticeship and have been studying at TAFE NSW and working in the trades team for 12 months. I love my trade, it is challenging, interesting and exciting every day. The people you work with are outgoing, enthusiastic and want to help you learn. The quality of the training you receive from Teys is impeccable.’

Molly – Operations Graduate (Wagga Wagga)

‘I went to school at St Paul’s Grammar, Cranebrook, where I graduated in 2014 with an International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma. In 2015, I began a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience (AVBS) through the University of Sydney, exposing me to a wide range of industries from animal production to research and conservation. During my time at university, I had the opportunity to join the Sydney University Intercollegiate Meat Judging (ICMJ) Team for the 2018 competition held in Wagga Wagga. Following the competition, I came to Teys at Wagga site for a tour of the facilities and was offered a Quality Assurance/Quality Control/Operations Graduate position to start in February 2019. There is a wide range of opportunities within the company, everything from people management to engineering to environmental management to marketing. It is exciting to be involved with a large company that presents so many opportunities to its employees.‘

Mal – A Teys Values Story

‘Teys has been my first and only employer and it’s great that they have been so supportive and offered me the opportunity to progress in my career. Starting as a labourer in 2000 when I left school, I never would have imagined rolling briskets would see me 13 years later as the Training Manager for Tamworth. I started my career in the boning room and have progressed through several roles, giving me the opportunity to develop my technical and leadership skills, and complete a Certificate in Training and Assessing. I love that I can give back to the business by mentoring others and provide hands-on training.’
