Royal Mail will open 10 temporary parcel centers across the UK to help sort packages before they are delivered to customers over the Christmas peak period.
Around 3,000 seasonal workers will be based in the parcel centers where they will support Royal Mail’s 123,000 deliverymen and women. In total, the post will employ approximately 19,000 seasonal workers this year to help with its operations. It is the fifth year that Royal Mail has opened a dedicated network of temporary sorting centers, which has now become an integral part of the group’s commitment to handling parcel volumes over the peak period.
The temporary sorting centers will be based in Bradford in West Yorkshire, Leyland in Lancashire, Wolverhampton in the West Midlands, Swindon in Wiltshire, Greenford in West London, Peterborough in Northamptonshire, Bletchley in Buckinghamshire and London Heathrow Airport, as well as at Bathgate in Scotland and Newport in Wales. The centers will open on a phased basis from November 2, 2015.
Royal Mail has set up a dedicated website for people to apply for the positions in the centers and at other sites across the UK. To visit the site click here.
