Online retail powerhouse Amazon’s plans to open a giant new warehouse in Ravenhall are gathering steam with applications now open for more than 200 jobs at the fulfilment centre.
Around 300 new jobs will be created at the new facility, due to more than double Amazon’s operational footprint in Victoria when it opens later this year.
Roles advertised last week range from team leader positions to entry level jobs processing customer orders.
Amazon Australia director of operations Craig Fuller said the company is proud to be creating hundreds of new employment opportunities for Melburnians at a time they are needed most.
“There are opportunities for motivated, enthusiastic people from all backgrounds and we look forward to welcoming them to our Ravenhall team,” he said.
The Ravenhall fulfilment centre will be 37,000 square metres in size, almost double the size of the Melbourne Cricket Ground and able to house up to six million items.
It will complement Amazon’s first Australian FC in Dandenong South which opened in 2017, enabling the company to increase the proportion of items that can be shipped directly to Victorian customers from Melbourne and enable faster delivery.
Melton mayor Kathy Majdlik said as one of Australia’s fastest growing areas, job creation is critically important to Melton and Amazon’s presence will mean more local families can find quality employment close to home.
“We’re thrilled that a diverse mix of more than 200 new jobs have been created in the City of Melton,” she said.
“Amazon’s ability to create these jobs demonstrates the outstanding business opportunities that exist in the City of Melton, including our prime location and growing workforce of professionals, trades people and young job seekers.”
