500 Birmingham jobs up for grabs as Royal Mail launches its Christmas recruitment campaign
Written by alexmetcalfe on October 15, 2018
ROYAL Mail has launched its Christmas recruitment campaign and needs to find an extra 500 workers in Birmingham.
It needs to find 23,000 in total nationwide.
The seasonal employees will help sort the Christmas post and the increased number of online shopping parcels, cards and letters.
Positions are available from later this month until early January 2019.
Other sorting and driving roles are on offer at Royal Mail Logistics and the group’s parcel business Parcelforce Worldwide.
Royal Mail has been recruiting festive temporary workers since the Second World War.
Royal Mail post and parcels CEO Sue Whalley said: “Christmas continues to be our busiest time of year.
“We plan all year round to ensure we deliver the best possible service for UK consumers and businesses before, during and after the Festive Season.
“We continue to make this substantial commitment in additional resources, including the recruitment of thousands of temporary workers, to ensure we can continue to deal with the huge amount of festive parcels, cards and online shopping orders, which we will be asked to deliver for our customers in every part of the country.”
Royal Mail has set up a dedicated website for people to apply for the Christmas positions, along with an email address and a helpline.
Royal Mail also has a year-round recruitment drive where it recruits postmen and women into its Delivery Offices around the UK.
There are a range of permanent and temporary delivery roles available.
