Royal Mail to deliver 33,000 Christmas jobs amid online shopping boom

Royal Mail has announced plans to create a ‘record’ number of temporary jobs over the Christmas period this year.

The firm aims to recruit 33,000 seasonal workers for the festive period - two thirds more than its usual Christmas temporary staff intake.

Royal Mail has made the decision to hire a ‘record’ number of extra staff in order to meet the growing trend for online shopping as a result of COVID-19.

Royal Mail’s chief HR officer Sally Ashford explained: “During these unprecedented times we believe it is critical that Royal Mail continues to deliver.

“We want to do our best to deliver Christmas for our customers and support the effort on the pandemic.

“This helps the whole country to celebrate and stay safe during these difficult times.”
