Amazon to add Australian workers for festive season


Amazon Australia has announced plans to onboard 1000 seasonal workers at its fulfilment centres around the country for the holiday season.

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.

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.

“The potential for growth is so big and it’s a great environment which makes the time fly,” Amanda says. “It is enjoyable and also really rewarding to know customers are getting their orders on time.”

Craig Fuller, Director of Operations, Amazon Australia says the opportunities come 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,” Craig says.

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.
