Retail giant Amazon is looking to hire more than 1,000 Aussie workers from across the country, as the company gears up for a busy mid-year sales season.

Amazon has opened up applications for seasonal roles at sites in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide.

The company said workers would be tasked with picking, packing, sorting and shipping customer orders, with no prior experience required.

Amazon Australia director of operations Mindy Espidio-Garcia said the company was looking for motivated and enthusiastic people for the seasonal positions.

“There are more than 1,000 roles available at our sites across the country and we provide on-the-job training so no previous experience is required,” Espidio-Garcia said.

“We urge anyone looking for a fulfilling, short term role in a safe, exciting and positive work environment to apply.”

In addition to seasonal jobs, the company is also looking for workers for its Amazon Flex program - which allows people to earn money by delivering Amazon packages using their own vehicle.

Delivery partners are able to choose their own times each week and are paid weekly. According to Amazon, sedan drivers can earn a minimum of $114 for a 4-hour block of work - equating to $28.50 an hour.

Aussies can apply for seasonal jobs and sign up for Amazon Flex via the company’s website.

Aussies take on second jobs

It comes as millions of Aussies look to take on second jobs to try and ease cost-of-living pressures.

A recent Finder survey found one in four Aussies were taking on extra work, working longer hours or coming out of retirement to make ends meet.

Finder money expert Sarah Megginson said some ways to boost your income alongside your 9-5 included pet sitting, rideshare driving, or work through platforms like Airtasker.
