Description & Requirements

We’re StarTrack 

We’re part of the Australia Post Group. So when you join StarTrack, you’re joining something bigger. 

We’re delivering like never before. From the vehicles that we drive, to the small businesses that make our communities thrive. We’re delivering for the environment, for our communities, for our customers and for our people. We’re moving forward and we want you to come along for the ride.  

 About the role:

  • 5.30am start - 1.30pm (flexibility required for potential overtime pre or post shift)
  • Monday to Friday
  • Handloading parcels and cartons from conveyor belts into trucks, ready for our drivers to head out on the road 
  • Unloading trucks when drivers get back to the warehouse 
  • Wrapping freight by hand or using a shrink wrapper (you know - like the ones at the airport), electronically scanning parcels and updating documentation. 
  • Forklift licence and experience highly desired

 What we offer you: 

  • Job security – Permanent part time position (7.5hrs per day)
  • Work life balance
  • Career development and training
  • Leave entitlements
  • 12% Superannuation
  • Free onsite parking
  • Uniform provided

 About you:

  • You are physically fit and can be on your feet all day
  • Have good geographical knowledge
  • Experienced in manual handling 
  • Possess initiative and a strong work ethic
  • Can lift at least 30kg – we assess this at a pre-employment medical check to help make sure you’re safe on the job
  • Laser focused, even when the role gets repetitive
  • If you’ve got a forklift licence that’s a plus, since this comes handy moving freight around the warehouse

We believe investing in our people is good business
That’s why we have a dedicated career coaching team for our employees. You’ll also get access to discounts on hundreds of items including restaurants, retail products and more. And because good mental health is vital, we offer a range of free counselling and specialist support services, covering everything from work/life balance and nutrition, to legal and financial management.
