Operations Excellence Intern, Operations Talent Development
Amazon is looking for ambitious, curious and versatile candidates to join our unique world as interns. An Amazon AU internship within the Operational Excellence team will provide you with an unforgettable experience in a fast-paced, dynamic and international environment; it will boost your resume and will provide a superb introduction to our activities.
These internships are educational opportunities intended to allow future managers to discover how we lead and develop our teams of Associates. Operations Excellence Interns will learn how our managers effectively engage their teams to realise their full potential, ensure their performance in order to fulfil our customers’ expectations, and encourage a safe and productive environment within our large and complex Fulfilment Centres.
Opportunities are available in Melbourne (Ravenhall) and Sydney (Moorebank) – both roles are based at our Fulfilment Centres based.
Key job responsibilities
As an Operations Excellence intern you might join one of the following teams:
• L&D (Learning and Development) – scheduling and coordinating training, designing and creating training material, conducting learning needs analysis
• ACES (Amazon Customer Excellence Services) – Benchmarking, implementing best practices and working on continuous improvement projects for various sites
• ICQA (Inventory Control and Quality Assurance) – Ensuring inventory records are accurate and working with operations teams to keep defects to a minimum
You will put your analytical skills to the test and roll up your sleeves to complete actions that will contribute to improve the functionality and level of service that Fulfilment Centres provide to our customers. This will include:
• Diving deep into data, mapping processes and problems
• Offering and testing potential solutions and implementing the best one(s)
• Interacting with highly efficient managers, technology development teams, and front line Associates to think broadly about solutions to the most complex business and operational challenges faced by one of the world’s fastest growing operations network.
We want to hire the world’s brightest minds, and offer them an environment in which they can relentlessly improve the experience for our customers.

• You are willing to work to flexible schedules/shifts hours
• You are results-driven with analytical skills and the desire to innovate and simplify current process and practices
• You should have strong decision-making skills, and use sound logic to communicate
• Evidence of leadership skills – perhaps you are president of a sporting or social club at university or took the lead in a group project
• You are able to demonstrate curiosity and pro-activity, which will allow you to gain greater autonomy in the course of the internship and make the most of your time with us to fully achieve your learning and development goals.
• Ability to work successfully in an ambiguous environment, to meet tight deadlines and prioritize workload even when faced with conflicting priorities.
• Previous work experience – a summer job, internship; if it’s an experience in a related field or business, even better
