UK courier CitySprint has begun recruiting 300 additional couriers, with a focus primarily on those with small and large vans and zero-emission vehicles in larger areas.
Courier roles are available throughout the UK, with extra demand in Oxford, Cardiff, Bristol, Reading, Norwich, Warwick, Guildford and Glasgow. The new couriers will be added to the pool of over 2,500 vans, bikes and cars, as CitySprint continues to grow. They will provide support across all areas of the business, with a focus on supporting growth in retail sectors. In addition, CitySprint is looking to employ drivers for their electric vehicles as they continue to expand their overall electric vehicle fleet to over 200 by the end of 2023.
Mark Footman, chief operating officer at CitySprint, commented, “It’s been another fruitful year for CitySprint, as the business has seen substantial growth in several key sectors. From winning an array of new clients to the group acquiring a London-based same-day courier company Absolutely. Despite a commendable 3.4 million deliveries in the past year, we want to strengthen our fleet further to ensure we can continue providing the best possible service over the busy summer months. We’re excited to welcome new suppliers on board, to help us deliver on these promises and stay ahead of our competitors, as the business grows.”
Ercan Bennett, a CitySprint courier, said, “I initially joined CitySprint as a courier off the back of a recommendation from a friend – fast forward seven years and I haven’t looked back since! It’s been great meeting new people and experiencing different situations each day. I love the freedom of being a self-employed courier as well as the flexibility and pay schedule, which allows me to balance my work with my personal responsibilities. If you’re looking for job satisfaction and are someone who enjoys being on the go and meeting lots of new interesting people, then it’s the perfect job for you.”
