Discover how taking a delivery role could mean more for you too.

About the role

Our postmen and women deliver letters and parcels to over 30 million addresses across the UK, six-days-a-week. You’ll start your day in the local delivery office, preparing the mail for your route, before joining a colleague in a shared van ­to start your round. Your round will take around four hours to complete. Our new delivery methods mean you won’t be carrying heavy bags - there’s a trolley for that. And you’ll be given a hand-held computer to capture signatures on the doorstep.

You’ll be the face of Royal Mail in your local community, and work flexible hours to deliver the high quality service our customers have come to expect.


Why work for us

Royal Mail is more than a household name. We connect companies, customers and communities across the country, delivering a 'one-price-goes-anywhere', universal postal service to more than 30 million addresses across the UK.

A leading UK company, we’re undertaking one of the biggest industrial transformations in the UK in recent history. Letter volumes are declining. So, we are focused on leveraging the increasing number of parcels being driven by the growth of the online shopping industry. We want to be more flexible and efficient. We are using our strong brand and developing a range of new products and services to maintain our pre-eminent position in the UK letters and parcels markets.


Who we're looking for

As one of our postwomen or men, you’ll need to be upbeat and self-motivated. You should be as happy working alone as you will be working as part of a team and getting to know the different customers on your round. You’ll have a strong sense of community and the idea of doing a job that involves shift patterns will appeal.

We deliver mail come rain or shine, so we’re looking for people who like being outdoors whatever the weather. And, because there is walking involved in every round, you’ll also be someone who likes the idea of doing a job that will help you keep fit. Some experience in a customer facing role would be ideal and, for roles with driving, a full driving licence with no more than six penalty points is essential.
