Royal Mail is hiring temporary Christmas Casuals in order to help them during the busiest time of the year.
The Christmas period is traditionally a very busy time for the postal service, as it sees a huge increase in parcels and letters coming through its sorting office.
Because of this it needs “a few thousand” extra staff in order to help “deliver Christmas to everyone in the UK”.
Each of the Royal Mail centres are offering a range of shifts, from early and late ones to nights and weekends.
A job advertisement for the role says that applicants will be working just like “Mr and Mrs Claus” in helping to bring the festive season to people, and that the hours will be “flexible and adaptable”.
Those who are given the job will help to unload mail and parcels from vans, move them around the warehouse and sort them.
