Royal Mail is one of the UK’s best-loved brands. Every day, bringing letters and parcels to people around the country; something that communities across the UK rely on. They are 150,000 strong with 500 years of history and are hugely proud of the service they provide.
About the role
You’ll start your day for an hour or so in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route, before taking out your van to complete your round. You’ll each be given a hand-held computer device to capture customer signatures for deliveries and the round will take around four hours to complete. The hand-held computer will also act as your routing system putting your round in the most economical route, telling you which house to go to next.
Upbeat and self-motivated, you’ll be as happy working alone as you will be working as part of a team and getting to know the different people on your round. You’ll have a strong sense of community and the idea of doing a job that involves flexible working patterns will appeal to you.
We deliver parcels come rain or shine, so we’re looking for people who like being outdoors whatever the weather, you’ll also be someone who likes the idea of doing a job that will help you keep fit.
Some experience in a customer facing role would be ideal.
Driving licence requirements
A full UK manual driving licence (in your current UK address), with no more than six penalty points is essential, but a clean licence is preferred. Please note you will be required to show this at assessment.
