McGillvary was sent out on loan to Batley Bulldogs for the 2009 Co-operative Championship, a season which saw him progress as a talent and earned him selection in the 2009 Championship team of the season. He made his first-grade début in 2010, starting on the right wing against Bradford Bulls in round 16 of 2010's Super League XV.
In 2011 McGillvary was awarded the Albert Goldthorpe Rookie of the Year Medal.
McGillvary enjoyed an outstanding season in 2015, finishing as Super League's top try scorer with 27 and earning a first selection in the Super League Dream Team. To add more incentive to McGillvary's success, he was selected in Steve McNamara's 24-man England team for their test series against New Zealand. He made his debut for England in the decisive final test-match at the DW Stadium.
The following year, McGillvary was selected in the England squad for the 2016 Four Nations. Before the tournament, England played a test match against France in which McGillvary scored a try in England's 40-6 win.
