Title:  Hygiene Manager


We are proud to represent Kellogg’s. With iconic brands that have been part of the lives of generations, we’re excited to be part of creating better days for people and communities around the world.


We are a global powerhouse in cereals and snacks and we make some of Australia’s favourite foods.  Our iconic brands include Nutri-Grain, Special K, Sultana Bran and Coco Pops (cereals), LCMs and Pringles (snacks).

We’re re-investing in our Botany manufacturing facility to ensure we continue produce products of premium quality to continue to maintain customer satisfaction.  As a result of this re-investment we have introduced the role of Hygiene Manager.  This position plays a critical role in ensuring that our Botany manufacturing plant complies with the Kellogg Global requirements in the areas of sanitation and pest management programs.  

You will be a part of a team that prides itself on a strong history of production of iconic breakfast cereals here in Australia!   

Key responsibilities include:

  • Accountable for the facility sanitation standards and driving improvements via daily health checks and monthly sanitation score reviews.
  • Ensuring that our cleaning, chemical and integrated pest control providers are delivering on contract services and at the standard that is required.  This includes RFP, budget management, service evaluation, KPI tracking and non-compliance investigation
  • Carrying our housekeeping and sanitation training with our shift crews and other groups as required
  • Conduct various audits and provide coaching through daily sanitation audits, ensuring compliance with our rigorous lean manufacturing principles
  • Ensure all plant sanitation and integrated pest management related documents and procedures are kept up-to-date with local, regional and global requirements for compliance with both internal and external audits
  • Working closely with regional and global sanitation leaders and peers for reporting on Botany performance and leveraging broader exposure to introduce locally
  • Lead a team of Shift Sanitation Coordinators and a Pest Control Manager


Skills, experience & attributes sought:
With a degree qualification in in Food Technology or Science, we’re looking for an individual with a successful track record in a similar role in food manufacturing.  The successful candidate will have a sound technical knowledge of quality and food safety. You will be able to hold service providers to account to their required KPI’s and have the ability to have tough conversations when required to improve performance, if necessary.  We’re looking for someone who doesn’t mind getting onto the production floor – this is not a pure desk-based role.  You will have the ability to influence at all levels, with strong written and verbal communication and relationships building skills and experience.       


Benefits, culture & company:
We’re a company that makes great food and we hire great people!  
Our K values (integrity & respect, accountability, passion, simplicity, success and humility and hunger) shape our Kellogg culture and guide the way the business is run.
We offer our employees competitive salaries including performance related bonuses and incentives, free on-site car parking and half day Friday year round!  Our well-being benefits are varied with offerings to suit everybody at every stage in your life – they include a well-being allowance and 2 x ‘Being at your best days’ annually – which are two days of leave to focus on your well-being. 
As an individual you can grow and develop your career with the support of your Manager and development programs.  The benefit of a global organization is you can take your career off-shore.
