You might be surprised to learn how you can build your career with Australia Post.

Our purpose? We connect people with each other and the world. We help unlock opportunities for everyone.

It takes a big team to deliver millions of parcels each day – that’s part of the reason we’re one of Australia’s largest employers. You may have met your local postie recently delivering online shopping to your home. We have a range of jobs in our deliveries team, including parcel sorters, the busy folks getting parcels ready for dispatch, and drivers, who can be found out and about making deliveries in trucks and vans.

Our network of retail stores is the largest in the country. We provide services to local communities through our 4,000+ Post Offices, with over 2,500 of them in rural and regional Australia. Our retail teams help our customers shop, bank, pay bills and connect.

But you might be surprised to learn we also deliver products and services in ecommerce, banking and digital ID facilities too. In fact, our team are regularly visited by other organisations, just to get an insight into how we do digital.

That’s why when you start your career with Australia Post, the chance to make an impact is yours. And wherever you enter our business, you’ll join a welcoming bunch of people who care deeply about our purpose.
