FOR the past couple of months relief postie Roland Lea has woken up with a smile to the sights of downtown Emerald, while Australia Post looks for full-time local posties to take over.
“I really enjoy being able to deliver in Emerald and various other areas – that is what being a relief postie is all about,” said Roland.
“Applying for a job as a postie was quite challenging for me as I had never been on a motorcycle before.
“But after my training and qualification, I couldn’t believe what I had been missing out on.
“I truly love riding my bike and being outdoors.”
When it comes to mail delivery, Emerald is a town on most posties’ wish lists, said Roland, praising its perfect delivery conditions .
“The ground is almost completely flat, the streets are wide and the letterboxes are large,” he said.
“Being a postie certainly has its benefits; you have your weekends free, you can finish early, learn new skills and you become a more aware driver on the roads.”
You too can share in the good life of a postie, with three full-time positions available in Emerald now.
Ideally prospective candidates will have a current motorbike licence, but people with their learner’s licence are still encouraged to apply.
