A company has hundreds of delivery jobs available, countering the trend as unemployment in Australia is soaring.
Australian delivery company ANC has started recruiting more drivers from contractors across the country by 2021.
ANC, which provides full-service last-mile delivery, predicts a 50 percent increase in deliveries in the next three months and further growth next year.
“Unlike some organizations, we keep our drivers out of the holidays,” said ANC Director James Taylor.

“With a continued increase in deliveries in 2020 and a number of new customer partners using our last mile services, we currently need at least 250 new owners,” he explains.
ANC saw a 58 percent growth in delivery numbers in September this year, compared to January.
Mr. Taylor also said that some of the brands for which ANC supplied had grown by 700 percent since the start of the pandemic.
“We have seen a huge increase in white goods, such as fridges and freezers, plus desks and chairs for our furniture customers as more and more people work from home,” he explains.
Mr. Taylor said the ANC was happy to hire employees who were undergoing a career transition.
“We have owner drivers from a variety of industries, including events, hospitality, aviation, removals, real estate – we even have a former stonemason who has changed jobs.”
A driver, Andrew D’Urso, worked as an audiovisual technician at live events for more than 10 years before joining ANC during the coronavirus pandemic.
ANC Director James Taylor (pictured) said the company was happy to hire and train employees who underwent a career switch during the coronavirus pandemic.
“In March, my entire calendar ran out within a week because every event was canceled,” explains Mr. D’Urso.
“I converted my 1 ton van, previously used to transport audiovisual equipment … now I deliver to ANC customers including Bunnings, Barbeques Galore and Telstra.”
“What I particularly like is the interactions with customers who are happy to see you because you provide something they need.”
Mr. D’Urso urged anyone considering working as a delivery driver.
‘I would say, agree. I made the change and haven’t looked back. ANC is a great place to work. I’ve had consistent work for six months. ‘
