Brand: Australia Post
Work type: Permanent Full Time
Most of us have fond memories of our local ‘Postie’ – the friendly face on the motorbike who delivered our letters and parcels. They’ve always been an essential part of Australia Post’s mail business, and as more of our customers embrace online and digital communications, it’s a role that’s only grown more significant.
This is your chance to hop on an electric delivery vehicle yourself and help us grow our letters service in refreshingly modern directions.
About the role
As one of our PDOs, you’ll start your days sorting mail – before hopping on an electric delivery vehicle provided by Australia Post, and delivering mail to customers.
To do that, you’ll need:
A current unrestricted motorcycle licence or car license relevant to your state of residence (a provisional licence will also be considered)
To successfully pass our riding skills assessment
To be fit enough to lift up to 16kg of mail repeatedly each day
Meet our safe working load limit (so you’ll need to weigh 120kg or less when fully clothed)
What are we looking for?
A friendly, reliable and considerate personality – with a real knack for communicating and interacting with others (after all, you’ll be constantly talking with our customers)
Someone who enjoys early morning starts, and can be counted on to deliver mail to where it needs to go
A commitment to Australia Post’s Occupational Health and Safety standards
The flexibility to stay until the job’s done if need be – and a real desire to help the team.
The Australia Post philosophy
For us, a diverse, inclusive and enjoyable culture is the foundation for great work. It’s why we encourage applications from people of all ages, nationalities and cultures, and promote a flexible way of working that enables a genuine work-life balance.
Plus, our unique scale and scope means there are outstanding opportunities for career growth and personal development, whatever your ambitions.
Together, our differences make us stronger.
We’re all ages, genders and abilities, and we come from all walks of life. We’re you. As one of Australia’s largest employers – with 35,000 employees and an extended workforce of more than 70,000 – we’re laser focused on building a workforce that reflects the vibrant communities we serve. And we know an inclusive workforce is better for business too.
