Royal Mail will deliver a good Christmas for job seekers as they have announced dozens of temporary roles in Peterborough over the festive period.

Today (Monday) Royal Mail has started its Christmas recruitment campaign, looking for workers to help sort post during the busiest time of year.

In total, there will be 125 new posts in Peterborough, with thousands more across the rest of the country.

Individuals will be paid between £7.83 and £12.48 depending on age and shifts worked.

Temporary positions across a variety of shifts will be available, from late October through to early January 2019. The peak of the additional temporary work will be in the busiest month of December.

Royal Mail post and parcels CEO, Sue Whalley, said: “Christmas continues to be our busiest time of year. We plan all year round to ensure we deliver the best possible service for UK consumers and businesses before, during and after the Festive Season.

“We continue to make this substantial commitment in additional resources, including the recruitment of thousands of temporary workers, to ensure we can continue to deal with the huge amount of festive parcels, cards and online shopping orders, which we will be asked to deliver for our customers in every part of the country.”

The firm has set up a dedicated website for people to apply for the Christmas positions, https://christmasrecruitment.royalmailgroup.com/ or by emailing Christmas_helpline@royalmail.com or by calling the automated helpline on 0345 600 1785.
