Independent parcel carrier Yodel is recruiting more than 4,300 new staff across its 50 nationwide locations to help it manage the peak period this year. The roles include couriers, parcel sorters and warehouse operatives across the UK.
Meanwhile, Royal Mail announced 20,000 temporary jobs last week, available from late October through to early January.
Mike Hancox, CEO of Yodel, said: “We expect the ongoing growth in online retail will continue in the winter months as consumers look to finalise their Black Friday and Christmas shopping for friends, family and loved ones as conveniently as possible.”
“There’s a huge breadth of roles available, with many presenting an opportunity to grow into long-term careers. By joining Yodel you’ll become part of a nationwide family and have options to work either full or part-time to suit your lifestyle.”
Yodel handled 190 million parcels last year, a 30% increase in volume in 2020 compared to 2019.
