From scorching summer days to the depths of winter, our postal workers play a vital role, delivering the mail. It’s a physically demanding job but it’s one the nation relies on. Here, you will :
Work part-time hours between the hours of 08 : 30 and 14 : 30
Cover periods of leave for a fixed number of routes (so you’ll need to be a bit flexible)
Sort the mail for your route
Check your vehicle and join a colleague for your round
Spend between four and six hours delivering mail outdoors
Upbeat and self-motivated : You’ll be happy working solo as well as part of a team.
Love of the outdoors : From rural farms to city apartments, corner shops to business parks, whatever the weather (and, this being Britain, it can get quite extreme) we’re there, six days a week.
That means you’ll need to be happy being out and about.
Good level of fitness : There’s up to six hours per day of walking, so you should relish a role that keeps you fit.
Excellent organisation : You will need to be able to plan your round and make sure you complete all your deliveries in good time.
Resilience : You will be able to work under pressure and with the public, acting as a friendly face that people know and trust.
Flexibility : You will be working in different areas covering your colleagues’ holidays, so you might need to adjust your working hours to match your round.
