About Australia Post
Help shape our tomorrow
It takes a big team to deliver millions of parcels each day - that’s part of the reason we’re one of Australia’s largest employers. When you join Australia Post, the chance to make an impact is yours. And wherever you enter our business, you’ll join a welcoming bunch of people who care deeply about our purpose.

They drive our decisions and actions: - Trust: Do the right thing - Inclusivity: Everyone matters - Empowerment: Find a way - Safety: Be safe and well
Together, our differences make us stronger
Who are we? We're all ages, genders and abilities and we come from all walks of life. In fact, we're you.
