How are promotions handled at Australia Post?

Pros

Great location at 111 Bourke St. Newly refurbished offices. Good work / life balance. A well known company to have on your CV. The digital industry is like a "little village" in Melbourne, so if you're friends with the right people, you'll probably like it.

Cons

In the Australia Post Digital team, working hard and doing a good job isn't enough to progress or to even get a coveted permanent job if you're hired as a contractor. Recognition, promotions, permanency and acting opportunities are reserved for people who are friends with their hiring managers. I even witnessed laughable situations where a manager resigns, and then a newly hired direct report contractor is suddenly promoted to that departing manager's role and made permanent - all during an apparent hiring freeze. Be aware that the digital team is split between the technology side and creative side, and then those two sides are divided further between people who work on projects and people who work with the "home" team. The working environment can vary drastically between these different groups.

Advice to Management

Stop behaving like a typical Australian corporate. Hiring and promoting your friends rather than the best people for the job isn't the way forward. Advertising roles which are already filled or where you already have a "preferred candidate" just wastes everyone's time.
