Royal Mail is one of the UK’s best-loved brands. Every day, we’re bringing letters and parcels to people around the country; something that communities across the UK rely on. We are 150,000 strong with 500 years of history, and we wear our badge with pride. Now, we want you to wear it too.


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, and work flexible hours to deliver the outstanding levels of service our customers have come to expect.

You’ll start your day in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route.  You will then need to complete the necessary checks on your vehicle, guidance on how to complete these checks will be covered during your initial training, 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. We use a variety of equipment to convey the mail this includes the use of light weight and high capacity trollies which are supplied to carry your mail as you walk on foot between delivery points.  You will move to new delivery areas throughout the day, driving your vehicle in a responsible manner and parking safely at all times before returning back to the delivery office.  

You will also be required to work within our Callers Office, you will manage customer enquiries and be responsible for dealing with damaged items, uncollected or undeliverable mail and mis-sorted mail.  This is a customer facing role as you will be dealing with enquiries from the general public and be the first point of contact when a customer comes to collect their parcels.

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. We deliver mail come rain or shine, so we’re looking for safety conscious 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. 

You will need excellent organizational skills, be able to work well under pressure, must enjoy working with the public and have a friendly and professional attitude. You should also be familiar with basic computer applications, but full training will be given.


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.
