Yodel is looking to recruit 4,311 new members of staff, including couriers, parcel sorters and warehouse operatives at one of Yodel’s 50 locations nationwide.
Its recruitment drive is in response to the ever-growing demand for online retail, which has increased dramatically over the past 18 months, it says.
After having experienced the ease of ecommerce throughout the pandemic, consumers have been increasingly taking advantage of online shopping and have caused a permanent shift in the market with the business operating at peak levels throughout the whole year.
Mike Hancox, CEO of Yodel, explained: “We expect the ongoing growth in online retail will continue in the winter months as consumers look to finalise their Black Friday and Christmas shopping for friends, family and loved ones as conveniently as possible.
“There’s a huge breadth of roles available, with many presenting an opportunity to grow into long-term careers. By joining Yodel you’ll become part of a nationwide family and have options to work either full or part-time to suit your lifestyle.”
The announcement comes as Yodel records its busiest and most successful year to date. It handled 190 million parcels last year, a 30% increase in volume in 2020 compared to 2019.
