Australia Post

Australia Post is recruiting over 4,000 people across the country to help with an increase in volumes during the festive period – the biggest hiring spree in the organisation’s 210-year history.

Nearly 2,900 Christmas casuals will be hired across transport and deliveries across the country, with a further 300 fixed-term full-time and part-time customer contact centre opportunities in Brisbane and regional areas of South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and Queensland.

In addition to the Christmas casuals, Australia Post is also recruiting around 900 roles in other areas of the business, including across the Post Office network, to help serve customers better.

“This is a record-breaking recruitment drive for what we expect to be a Christmas unlike any we’ve had before in Australia Post’s history. In a year that has been incredibly challenging and impacted people in many ways, we are delighted to be inviting people to join us this Christmas as we deliver across the country,” said Executive General Manager People & Culture Sue Davies.
