Labor's deputy leader Anthony Albanese says he hasn't thought about whether he will contest the party's top job following its decisive election defeat.

Mr Albanese says he threw all of his energies into the campaign, but will consider the leadership matter now Kevin Rudd has announced he will stand aside.

"I didn't think about post (election) scenarios - there's time to do that now," he told the Ten Network on Sunday.

He says there are a number of talented people to lead the party.

"I'll be happy to serve whoever the caucus chooses and be loyal to them," Mr Albanese said.

"The fact is we have a number of talented people in the Labor party caucus - Bill Shorten, Tony Burke, Chris Bowen, Tanya Plibersek.

"There are a range of good, experienced people who can serve the party."
