Royal Mail Post Person

Opportunities throughout London & SouthEast England, County Durham, South Yorkshire & North Yorkshire

This is your opportunity to have a real impact, in the heart of your community, while working for one of the UK’s most well-loved brands.

About the role

Delivering mail and parcels to houses and businesses within a set area, you’ll be the face of Royal Mail in your local community, working flexible hours to deliver outstanding levels of service expected by our customers.

You’ll start your day in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route, before joining a colleague in a shared van ­to start 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. But don’t worry – our new delivery methods mean you won’t be carrying heavy bags (there’s a trolley for that), although completing your round on foot will keep you in good shape.

We’re offering 12 weeks assignments as a Manpower employee, you’ll receive a competitive salary of £7.65 - £9.40 per hour, depending on location and weekend working. You’ll also enjoy our excellent benefits package, including access to training and development tools, paid annual leave and staff discounts.

Great performance could lead to a permanent contract with us offering £21,000 - £26,000 per annum depending on location, increasing further to £22,500 - £29,000 per annum if you stay with us for longer than 12 months (pro-rata for part-time contracts).  

About You
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 shift patterns will appeal to you.

We deliver mail come rain or shine, so we’re looking for people who like being outdoors whatever the weather, and because there is walking involved in every round, 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 and for roles with driving, a full driving licence with no more than six penalty points is essential.
