You can apply without a resume right now using your device.

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 the bike 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 a pushbike provided by Australia Post, and delivering that mail to customers.

To do that, you’ll need:
To successfully pass our practical riding skills assessment

To be fit enough to lift up to 16kg of mail repeatedly each day.

Meet our pushbikes’ safe working load limit (so you’ll need to weigh 115kg 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.

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.
