Brand: Australia Post
Categories: Delivery
Work type: Fixed Term Full Time
State: NSW
Location: Strathfield

Most of us have fond memories of our local ‘Postie’ - the friendly face delivering 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 important and more significant.

This is your chance to hop on the motorbike yourself to deliver post to the community!

About the role

As one of our Postal Delivery Officers (PDO's), you’ll start your days sorting mail at the facility before hopping on a small motorcycle provided by Australia Post and heading out to deliver that mail to customers. 

  • This role requires you to have a valid Motorcycle licence and be a confident rider
  • Core working hours are Monday to Friday 6.30am to 2.30pm (varied)
  • Salary - upon completion of 3 months employment, the full salary for this role is $50,697pa + 15% shift loading + 12% superannuation

To do that, you’ll need:

  • A current full or provisional motorcycle licence 
  • Be a confident rider on geared motorbikes 
  • To successfully pass our riding skills assessment
  • To be fit enough to lift up to 16kg of mail repeatedly each day
  • Meet our motorcycles’ safe working load limit (so you’ll need to weigh 100kg or less when fully clothed including helmet and boots)

What we are looking for?  

  • A friendly, reliable, and considerate person, with a real knack for communicating and interacting with others
  • Someone who enjoys early morning starts, and can be counted on to deliver mail efficiently, accurately, and safely
  • The flexibility to stay until the job’s done 
  • A real desire to help the team and the customers
  • A commitment to Australia Post’s Occupational Health and Safety standards
