Amazon Australia announces 1,000 job opportunities for the holidays
Amazon Australia will be onboarding around 1,000 seasonal workers for the holiday season, with jobs available at its fulfilment centres and Amazon Logistics sites across the country.
The company is looking for workers with a range of experience and skill levels to help pick, pack and ship orders over the festive season.
These are new seasonal job opportunities that provide extra income during the holiday season, offering Australians the opportunity to earn competitive pay in a safe and supportive work environment.
Craig Fuller, Director of Operations, Amazon Australia said they are pleased to offer job opportunities across the country at a time when they are needed most.
“There are opportunities for motivated, enthusiastic people from all backgrounds and we look forward to welcoming them to our sites around Australia as we head into the holiday period,” Fuller said.
These seasonal opportunities can also present a path to employment with – and a longer-term career at – Amazon. Amanda Hadaway’s career at Amazon began with a seasonal position at Amazon’s Brisbane fulfilment centre packing customer orders. She was offered a permanent role and promoted and is now a Process Assistant.
Hadaway said she joined Amazon for the growth opportunities, and encourages those looking for work in the lead up to Christmas to apply.
“The potential for growth is so big and it’s a great environment which makes the time fly. It is enjoyable and also really rewarding to know customers are getting their orders on time,” she said.
The announcement of seasonal jobs follows a year of job creation across Amazon’s Australian operations network, including the creation of more than 600 new permanent roles at Amazon sites in 2021.
Amazon has five fulfilment centres and 12 Amazon Logistics sites operating in Australia, with sites in Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
