Military Employment Opportunities - AUS

AWS Australia Pty Ltd

Mar 8th, 2023
Amazon is guided by four principles: customer obsession rather than competitor focus, passion for invention, commitment to operational excellence, and long-term thinking. We are driven by the excitement of building technologies, inventing products, and providing services that change lives. We embrace new ways of doing things, make decisions quickly, and are not afraid to fail. We have the scope and capabilities of a large company, and the spirit and heart of a small one.

Together, Amazonians research and develop new technologies from Amazon Web Services to Alexa on behalf of our customers: shoppers, sellers, content creators, and developers around the world.

We are looking for veterans and their families who are actively looking to transition out of the ADF or who have recently discharged.

At Amazon, thousands of veterans and their families are driving innovation and raising the bar on the customer experience. Each day, they apply their knowledge, skills, flexibility and leadership abilities in a wide variety of careers around the world on behalf of our customers.

Amazon is just like the military. It has roles from maintenance technicians, pilots, communications specialists, logisticians, managers/leaders at all levels, construction engineers, business intelligence/analysts, training and development and administrators; just to name a few.

Amazon will most likely have a job that matches your skills and experience.

Key job responsibilities
We’re working to be Earth’s most military friendly company. To get there, we need talented and motivated people. We’re seeking expressions of interest from military veterans and their families in Australia, across a variety of roles across several of our Amazon businesses ranging from Amazon Stores (online & fulfilment), AWS (Amazon Web Services), Audible, Amazon Logistics & Amazon Prime. Amazon is one of the most recognisable brand names in the world and we distribute millions of products each year to our amazing customers.

A day in the life
We are excited to offer military veterans and their families the opportunity to launch into careers with limitless possibilities. We know that transitioning out of military life can be a stressful and sometimes a daunting task.

Studies show that veterans leave their first post-transition jobs at higher rates than their civilian counterparts. As such, searching for that post-transition role is as much about finding a company where you can picture yourself being successful, as it is about finding the right role. As we get to know you more, we invite you to get to know us better.

Amazon’s leadership principles nest nicely into the ADF values where fast, efficient decision making leads to a results driven approach.

About the team
We are committed to developing a diverse workforce and we are even more committed to working with you to make that happen.

Acknowledgement of country:
In the spirit of reconciliation Amazon acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
