Applications for our Christmas recruitment Friends & Family scheme will close on Sunday 15 September.

Planning is already well underway for our busiest time of year.

We plan all year round to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible service to our customers at Christmas time and once again, this year we are recruiting thousands of extra people to help permanent colleagues deliver for our customers.

Do you know just the person to help? We’re looking for reliable and hard-working people to work mainly in mail centres, parcel sort centres and drivers. Applicants must be over 16 and be able to:

  • Stand for long periods of time
  • Be able to lift up to 11kg
  • Be able to push wheeled containers up to 250kg

If you know someone who fits the bill, please ask them to email their details to friendsandfamily@royalmail.com.  

Online applications for roles are still open and everyone who has registered their interest will be sent a special Friends & Family link to apply through.

Please note: Applications for the Friends & Family scheme will close on Sunday 15 September.

We offer competitive rates of pay and a wide variety of shifts at various locations across the UK.
