Put your stamp on Christmas - Temporary Christmas roles at Royal Mail
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.
Unwrap a new role
Just like Mr & Mrs Claus, you will help to deliver Christmas to everybody in the UK! Flexible and adaptable at all times, you will be doing a very important job. You’ll be helping us unload mail and parcels from our vans, moving them around our warehouses and then sorting them so they arrive at their destination safely – sometimes sorting over a million items in a single shift with your team!
Our Wishlist for Mail Sorters
• You enjoy working to tight deadlines in a fast-paced environment
• Being proactive and detailed focused is key
• You are flexible and adaptable to work on various tasks during a shift
• You are able to push trolleys (up to 250kgs) and lift and move mail bags up to 11kg
• Standing for long periods is comfortable for you
• No previous experience is needed - don’t worry, we love new people
• If you do have experience in warehouse or sorting work, with the likes of Amazon or another distribution company, then you are definitely on our wish-list too.
Next Steps
On your application, we will ask you which shift you would prefer. You will be able to pick from Earlies, Lates, Nights and Weekends, but please only select a shift pattern detailed above or we might not be able to progress your application.
Just to let you know, we are not able to guarantee your preferred shift as shifts are offered on a first come first serve basis, and shift times may change depending of the amount of mail going through our centres.
If your application is successful, we will offer you a role based on the shift preferences you choose in your application, so please select them thoughtfully. Our roles go quickly, so make sure you complete each stage of the process quickly to avoid disappointment.
