Our client, Royal Mail are seeking multiple Postal Walkers for immediate start (subject to security vetting)

We are expecting this position to start within 5-10 days after registration

Anyone applying should be aware that a onetime trip to Leatherhead is required to complete essential paper work required for security vetting.

Please note you will be working outdoors in all weathers. You will be undertaking the role on foot so a driving license is not required, however it is preferred.

The role will be delivering mail and parcels to houses and businesses within a set area, along a set route.

You'll start your day in the local delivery office, sorting the mail for your route, before leaving, either alone or with another member of Royal Mail staff in a van. You'll each be given a hand-held computer device to capture customer signatures for deliveries and the round will take around 4 hours to complete. New delivery methods mean you won't be carrying heavy bags (there's a trolley for that) although completing your round on foot will keep you in good shape.

Before starting you will be given basic, introductory training, further training may be available, on request, if required however you will be expected to learn as you go.
