Royal Mail seeks record number of Christmas temps

Published 26th Oct 2020

Royal Mail is looking to fill a record number of temporary seasonal jobs due to a surge in online shopping during the pandemic.

 

It aims to hire 33,000 additional workers for the Christmas period – two-thirds more than usual.

The postal service typically employs between 15,000 and 23,000 extra staff between October and January.

The temporary workers will mainly work in sorting offices, delivery vans and data centres.

Royal Mail says that a higher number of workers is needed to help sort Christmas deliveries of letters, cards and parcels this year because many consumers are staying at home under Covid-19 restrictions and shopping online.
