More than 300 jobs are on offer in the annual seasonal recruitment drive by Royal Mail for its Northampton depot.

The workers will help sort the Christmas post at the sorting office in Swan Valley.

The positions will from run from mid-November through to early January. There will be a number of different shifts and the majority of the workers will be required in December.

Most of the seasonal positions will support Royal Mail’s permanent postmen and women, who sort and deliver the mail all year round. Parcelforce Worldwide is also looking for drivers and indoor workers as the whole organisation gears up to deliver at Christmas.

Royal Mail’s Tony Fox, 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.”
