Our client, Royal Mail are seeking a Postal Worker for immediate start (subject to security vetting)
Anyone applying should be aware that a one time trip to Southampton is required to complete essential paper work required for security vetting.
Please note that this is a similar role to a Post Person, and you will be working outdoors in all weathers. You will be undertaking the role on foot but you need to be able to drive.
Ideally you will have undertaken work for Royal Mail before, however as a minimum all applicants must have experience of deliveries and working outdoors
Your new job will be 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 their customers have come to expect.
You'll start your day in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route, 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. But don't worry - their new delivery methods mean you won't be carrying heavy bags (there's a trolley for that) although completing your round on foot will keep you in good shape.
