Working as a Postal Delivery Driver you will receive £12 per hour working from 11am until early evening 7pm. The role is working any 5 days from 6. Part time working opportunities are also available.
About the role
Delivering mail and parcels to houses and businesses within a set area, you`ll be the face of Royal Mail in your local community, working flexible hours to deliver outstanding levels of service expected by our customers.
You`ll start your day for an hour or so in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route, before taking out your van to complete your round. You`ll each be given a hand-held computer device to capture customer signatures for deliveries and the round will take around four hours to complete. The hand-held computer will also act as your routing system putting your round in the most economical route, telling you which house to go to next.
You`ll also enjoy our excellent benefits package, including access to training and development tools, paid annual leave and staff discounts.
Upbeat and self-motivated, you`ll be as happy working alone as you will be working as part of a team and getting to know the different people on your round. You`ll have a strong sense of community and the idea of doing a job that involves flexible working patterns will appeal to you.
We deliver parcels and packets come rain or shine, so we`re looking for people who like being outdoors whatever the weather, 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.
