Post office seeks 2,450 new delivery employees in 2017

POSTMEN and postwomen are being sought this year with between 2,430 and 2,450 job openings as part of a plan to increase the workforce by 10,000 by 2020.

The State post office, or Correos, already advertised 1,606 jobs at the beginning of 2016 – which 125,000 people applied for.

Correos has been praised by unions as being one of the few public sector firms to ensure 100% of vacancies caused by retirement or resignations have been filled.

The labourers’ commission (CCOO) has reminded the post office not to allow its mass recruitment drive to focus on strings of temporary contracts, but to ensure that at least the majority of positions filled are full-time and permanent.

Postal delivery staff sought will be for a combination of rounds carried out on foot and rounds by moped, lent by the firm.
