Royal Mail is looking for around 60 temporary workers to help them sort Doncaster’s Christmas post.

Temporary positions across a variety of shifts will be available between mid-November through to early January 2015. The peak of the additional temporary work will be in the busiest month of December.

The majority of seasonal positions will support Royal Mail’s 123,000 permanent postmen and women, who sort and deliver the mail all year round.

The recruits will help to sort Christmas cards and parcels before they go to around 1,400 delivery offices for postmen and women to take out on their rounds.

Royal Mail Group’s express parcels business, Parcelforce Worldwide, is also recruiting around 2,600 extra drivers and sorting staff throughout the UK.

Royal Mail’s Rob Jenson, said: “Christmas is our busiest time of year. We plan all year round to help ensure we deliver the best possible service for consumers and businesses in the UK.

“Every Christmas, we make a substantial commitment in additional resources to handle the festive mailbag, including the recruitment of thousands of temporary workers.”
