Christmas recruitment

Here at Royal Mail, Christmas is our busiest time of year. With so many parcels and letters coming through our warehouse doors, it’s no surprise that we need a few thousand extra helping hands to get everything where it needs to go. That’s why, every year, we hire temporary Mail Centre workers from all different walks of life to help us deliver Christmas across the UK.

Some of our Christmas roles are now live for application, others will go live in the next week or so. If you can’t see the location you want below, please leave your details to be contacted when the other sites go live

Your Christmas sorted

With Christmas just around the corner, it's never been so important for us to bring people together. Socially distanced but side by side, we've been keeping the country going over the last year, and now we need you to help us deliver the Christmas magic the nation needs.

As we get busier and busier being Santa's little helpers, we'll be reopening our temporary Christmas roles to invite people like you to play your part. Whoever you are, and wherever you come from, we want you on our team this Christmas.

Our new digital application process is clear, simple, and easy to book onto, and we are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for everyone who walks through our doors.

Who we're looking for

For us, being proactive and detail-focused is more important than whether you have previous experience or not. As long as you are comfortable standing for long periods of time and able to meet the fast-paced, physical nature of our centres, you’re good to go.

If you have experience in warehouse or sorting work, then you are definitely on our good list! If being part of a culturally inclusive company and keeping busy sounds like you, come and join us.
