Become an NZ Post Elf today

We think Kiwis deserve a great Christmas this year, but many more hands are needed to help deliver it on time. That’s why, for the first time ever, we’re putting the call out for ‘NZ Post Christmas Elves’.

Elves come in all shapes, sizes, skills and experience levels but the most important thing they bring is a passion for putting a festive smile on the face of New Zealanders. We need Elves like you right now, so apply today.

Processing Officers

Moving what matters to Kiwis - our processing centres help get presents and parcels out the door and under the tree. This is a physical role, where you’ll be on your feet all day, so you’ll need to be fit and active.

Delivery Agents

Being out on the road - it doesn't get any better than your office being the great outdoors! It’s a physically active role where you’ll be out rain, hail or shine. You'll need at least a restricted driver's licence.

If the options above don’t quite suit, what about a Flexi role? Working through one of our agency partners gives you even more flexibility with hours and roles that suit you and your family.
