Help us deliver like never before  

Australia Post is delivering like never before. From the vehicles that we drive and operate, to the small businesses that make our communities thrive. We’re delivering for the environment, for our communities, for our customers and for our people. We’re moving forward and we want you to come along for the ride. 

About the opportunity  
Supporting the lead up to Australia Post’s busiest time of year, we have forklift opportunities from August 2022, with potential for long term employment. Based at our Australia Post 24/7 facilities, you’ll work with colleagues across our processing and deliveries teams to keep the cogs turning. Safely operating a forklift and also sorting product on the floor, you will support with loading parcels/pallets for our delivery and transport drivers to head out on the road. If you enjoy variety, then this combination operations role is one for you.

About You

  • Be an Australian Citizen or Permanent Resident
  • Hold a valid LF Forklift License
  • Be fit enough to lift/load and unload mail/parcel items of all different shapes and sizes frequently around our facilities and into trucks
  • Be safety-focused, willing to undergo a vehicle assessment and pre-employment checks (medical, drug/alcohol screening and national police checks)
  • You’re a self-starter that enjoys working in a busy operations environment
  • You enjoy connecting with others in the community to support us to deliver on time, and like never before
  • How we’ll deliver for you  

  • Work in a modern facility and benefit from competitive rates, diverse rosters and operate in a safe and inclusive working environment. 
  • We invest in you for the long-term, encouraging growth through delivering on our values of trust, inclusivity, empowerment and safety. 
  • Be part of a culture where everybody feels they belong, are valued, and can bring their authentic self to work every day. 
  • We’re delivering together  

    Our diverse and inclusive workplaces bring out the best in our people. We're all ages, genders and abilities, and we come from all walks of life. That’s how we deliver for Australia - together. We believe our business should reflect the diverse communities we operate in. See how we’re achieving that here.
