Australia Post has once again begun recruitmen­t for extra staff ahead of what’s expected to be the busiest Christmas yet.

The postal service has listed 1600 permanent and fixed term positions to fill along with 3300 casual jobs available across the country.

About 100 of those vacancies are located in Victoria.

Australia Post has just finished a recruitmen­t drive in response to the surge in online shopping.

“At the moment, every day feels like Christmas at Australia Post,”

Australia Post executive general manager people and culture Sue Davies said.

“We’re on the lookout for people to join us and help deliver and process record volumes across the country.”

Australia Post has advertised vacancies across all areas of the company, including van and truck drivers, motorcycle and EDV posties, and forklift operators. There are also roles available in customer service and the parcel and mail processing teams.

“We’re so pleased to be able to welcome more into this fantastic

Australia Post team,” Ms Davies said.

More than two million parcels are delivered by Australia Post every day, and it is expecting that number to increase as the holiday season draws closer.
