About Australia Post

  • Government & Public Service
  • Transport & Logistics

Australia Post is one of Australia's most trusted and iconic brands. We have an incredible story and we're excited about what the future holds.

We employ over thirty thousand people and our deliveries network is huge. With over 4,000 post offices across the country, we’re a staple of every community and we’re relied on by countless businesses. Our International team is growing, as we continue to explore opportunities with our partners overseas.

But you might be surprised to learn that we also have one of the best digital teams in Australia. Delighting our customers through amazing digital experiences is what we’re all about. Australia Post has one of the best scaled agile delivery models in Australia, with every planning session attended by people from other large organisations, keen to learn about our approach.

We’re always on the lookout for talented people to join our team.

Wherever you enter our business, you’ll join a welcoming bunch of people who care deeply about our purpose. And you’ll enjoy a work-life balance that allows you to thrive.

Our people and our communities

We’re proud of the role we play in Australian communities, connecting people with each other and the world. We support a range of community enterprises, from the Big Issue and Midsumma, to sports and tech start-ups.

And we encourage our people to get involved in what matters to them, too. We offer a range of programs around workplace giving and volunteering.

Your health and wellbeing

The safety and wellbeing of our employees is a huge priority for us. We care deeply about creating mentally healthy workplaces. Good mental health is important for you to be able to do your job and to enjoy a healthy and happy lifestyle. We provide a range of resources to help you look after your physical and mental wellbeing, including our employee assistance program.

Because rest and play are important too, you can purchase extra annual leave (1-4 weeks, AP only), to help you find your own work-life balance. And we offer benefits such as discounts on health insurance, gym memberships and more. You’ll also get access to discounts on premium memberships for personal and professional development and even on laptops, PCs and phones.
