Royal Mail are now recruiting for Mail Sorters at Inverness Mail Centre.
Job Reference Number 53601
As the face of Royal Mail you will work from 02:50 to 06:50 as part of a team, ensuring we continue to deliver the high standards of service our customer expect.
When you think of jobs at Royal Mail, the first thing you might think of is the postwomen and men who deliver mail to your home day in, day out. From exam results and tax returns, to wedding invites or online purchases, joining Royal Mail gives you the opportunity to deliver much more than mail. It allows you the chance to deliver smiles and successes; new toys and old memories – making a real impact in the heart of your community, while working for one of the UK’s most well-loved brands.
About the Role
In the mail centre you will cover various indoor roles in a warehouse environment. You could be unloading mail from vans, moving it around in trolleys, sorting parcels and letters manually or operating machinery. It is a fast paced environment and you’ll be working to efficient methods in order to meet our business performance targets. A mail centre can process over a million items in a shift and you’ll be a valuable part of making that happen. As a Mail Centre postwoman or postman you will need to be flexible and adaptable, changing from one role to another to move the work quickly along the processing chain.
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 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.
Five centuries in business has made Royal Mail 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 29 million addresses across the UK.
A FTSE 100 organisation, 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 and are employing our strong brand and a range of new products and services to achieve this.
We are an inclusive employer with equality, diversity and fairness at the heart of our values. We welcome applications from individuals from all different backgrounds and are committed to promoting fair participation and equality of opportunity for all of our job applicants.
