Lactalis Australia is a progressive dairy company with an overall commitment to excellence. As leaders in the Dairy Industry in Australia and globally, we strive to attract, develop and retain the highest calibre skilled employees to ensure continuous improvement of our people and our Brands.


Our people think on their feet, challenge the norm and, as part of a FMCG organisation, are well versed in expecting the unexpected.


People are what make an organisation or business a success. The team at Lactalis Australia have a strong affinity with the dairy brands, but also the operational side of the business. Regardless of where they sit, they understand and acknowledge every link in the chain, from farm gate to supermarket shelf. The culture of Lactalis Australia is the interplay of Great People and Great Brands.


Lactalis offer performance based rewards, where salary reviews are linked to performance and the Rewards & Recognition program is linked to achievements.

At Lactalis, we encourage you to set your own career path. We provide assistance and guidance to help keep you moving in the right direction. We also provide opportunities for our people to work across different functions, for instance, move them out of Sales or Marketing, and into Operations. The simple belief at Lactalis – the broader the skills, the better for both the individual and the business.

Each Site around the country has their own Social Club and other employee clubs where we can all wind down, relax and enjoy some time out together. Lactalis encourages a healthy work/life balance for all employees.
We offer paid parental leave for all Australian-based permanent team members (conditions apply).
Listening to our people and improving engagement on the issues that matter to them is important to us; therefore we conduct regular Engagement Surveys and follow through to ensure the organisation continues to develop in a positive and progressive way. The connection between engagement and business results is a key focus for Lactalis and all employees.
Our E.A.P. provides confidential professional counselling for work, personal and family concerns and is available for all Lactalis team members and their immediate family or household members.
Please refer to our corporate website for further information on our global programs. https://lactalis.fr
We offer opportunities for students to spend some time with our various departments to help support study-linked development.
We offer Lactalis team members a discount on BUPA and Medibank Private Corporate medical benefits memberships.
Lactalis offers competitive salary / wages which are linked to continuous reviews of market labour rates and individual performance.
Salary sacrifice is paying for certain things out of your pre-tax gross pay dollars instead of your post-tax net pay dollars. You can, in effect buy the product or service and take home a little bit more in your pay packet!

We offer the opportunity for employees on salary to purchase up to an additional 4 weeks leave per year


What should I bring to the interview?
We should have your resume but you are encouraged to bring any extra material that may support your application. If you have a work visa please bring that for validation and any other qualification/certificates that are required for the role. Copies will be taken of these.
Are all positions advertised externally?
Most are advertised externally. Lactalis is a Company that strives to continue to build a strong engaged team; this includes advertising vacant positions both internally and externally in most instances. We value the talent we bring into the business and we value the talent we continue to grow in the business.

What if I am asked to have a medical or provide referees?
Medicals and reference checks are part of the recruitment and selection process for candidates who have reached this stage of the process but it does not mean you have the job. There may be other candidates who have reached this stage too and a decision will be made once we have assessed all information.
When can I expect to hear about my application?
When you apply you should receive a response automatically, advising that we have received your application and will be in touch within 2 weeks of the closing date, should you be successful in being selected for interview. If you do not hear from us again, please consider yourself unsuccessful on this occasion. We thank you for your application and interest in working with Lactalis.
Is it important that I have all the skills listed in the ad?
If the skills are listed as essential you must have them to be successful in being selected for interview. If the skills are listed as desirable they will help your application but are not a prerequisite.
When will you contact my referees?
We will seek your approval before any referees are contacted. This will usually take place after your second interview.
