We’re Australia Post

You might think you know us, but we’re transforming. We’ve been part of Australia’s DNA for over 200 years, but in this rapidly evolving commerce landscape, we’re changing too. ​

Help shape our tomorrow 

We’re opening a new facility in Sunshine to help keep things moving.

Our facilities are the engine room of our business. We’re looking for ongoing and casual Freight Handlers, to power our new facility. You’ll have the chance to tell us your preference in your application form.

We anticipate these roles starting mid-October. There may be a change in shift times after our busy Christmas period, to support the needs of our business.

Permanent full-time roles (ongoing)  

  • morning shift  and night shift available
  • Monday – Friday
  • full-time hours
  • 10:30am – 18:21pm and 18:30pm – 02:21am
  • $43,033 per annum + 12% superannuation (rates differ for employees under 21, penalties apply)

Casual full-time  

  • morning shift
  • Monday – Friday
  • full-time hours
  • 5:00am – 10:30am
  • $27.50 per hour + 12% superannuation (rates differ for employees under 21, penalties apply)

What you’ll be doing 

Want to work in a role with a great lifestyle that’ll help you keep fit?

On your feet for most of your shift, you’ll be manually sorting parcels and mail each day, ready for our posties to deliver. As part of a hard-working team, you’ll be using handling bags, trays and containers to load and unload parcels. Safety’s our top priority and it’s yours too, so you’ll be actively contributing to our safety culture.

You’ll get to have a real impact on our customers, using your fitness and attention to detail to make sure every delivery gets where it needs to.

What we’re looking for 

  • strong memory recall and hand/eye coordination
  • quick learners who can maintain a high standard of work
  • flexibility to stay until the job’s done if need be, work different shifts
  • a knack for communicating and interacting with others

We believe investing in our people is good for business 

That’s why we have a dedicated career coaching team for our award employees. And we know that your life outside of work matters. That’s why we have a culture that promotes a genuine work/life balance. But don’t take our word for it, you can hear from our people in our company reviews. We also offer 12% superannuation for these roles.

Together, our differences make us stronger. 

With a reach across Australia and beyond, we’re building a workforce that’s as diverse as the communities we serve. Learn more about how we’re supporting inclusion at Australia Post, here.​ We welcome application from Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islanders. We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we operate, live and gather as employees, and recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community. We pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging. To find out more watch this short video.
