Royal Mail are now recruiting for delivery postwomen and postmen at:
Chelmsford Delivery Office
As the face of Royal Mail you will work from 7am to 3pm as part of a team, ensuring we continue to deliver the high standards of service our customers expect.
When you think of jobs at Royal Mail, the first thing you might think of is the postwomen and men who deliver mail to your home day in, day out. From exam results and tax returns, to wedding invites or online purchases, joining Royal Mail gives you the opportunity to deliver much more than mail. It allows you the chance to deliver smiles and successes; new toys and old memories - making a real impact in the heart of your community, while working for one of the UK’s most well-loved brands.
About the Role
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 to deliver the outstanding levels of service our customers have come to expect.
You’ll start your day in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route. You will then need to complete the necessary checks on your vehicle, guidance on how to complete these checks will be covered during your initial training, 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. We use a variety of equipment to convey the mail this includes the use of light weight and high capacity trollies which are supplied to carry your mail as you walk on foot between delivery points. You will move to new delivery areas throughout the day, driving your vehicle in a responsible manner and parking safely at all times before returning back to the delivery office.
Upbeat and self-motivated, you’ll be as happy working alone as you will be working as part of a team and getting to know the different people on your round. You’ll have a strong sense of community and the idea of doing a job that involves flexible shift patterns will appeal. We deliver mail come rain or shine, so we’re looking for safety conscious people who like being outdoors whatever the weather, and because there is walking involved in every round, you’ll also be someone who likes the idea of doing a job that will help you keep fit. Some experience in a customer facing role would be ideal.
