Yodel creates 2,000+ roles in the ramp up to festive peak

UK independent parcel carrier Yodel has announced that it is creating over 2,000 seasonal roles in a mix of functions in the business as it prepares for what is expected to be a busy peak season for the industry.

The growth in e-commerce has continued across 2023 with demand for parcel delivery services following suit. The last year has seen a spike in people using online marketplaces such as eBay and Vinted for additional sources of income and to shop for secondhand bargains. As a result, Yodel’s consumer-to-consumer (C2C) operations have boomed with parcel volumes growing by 162% in just 12 months.

Roles are available across Yodel’s 50 locations nationwide.

This latest recruitment drive also follows a series of infrastructure and fleet investments, including the opening of a new site in Coventry and a £14.5m spend on new tractor units and double decker trailers, boosting capacity to support the business as it scales up operations for the busy pre-Christmas period.

Mike Hancox, CEO of Yodel, commented: “Each year the industry looks to increase capacity in preparation for higher volumes over the Christmas peak, and with the continuing growth in the market we anticipate this festive season to be our busiest yet. Many of the roles available represent an opportunity to grow into long-term careers with progression into more senior positions. Working at Yodel gives you the flexibility to rk either full or part-time to suit your lifestyle and is an opportunity to join a nationwide network of dedicated and committed colleagues.”

Yodel has also launched a brand-new recruitment website to make discovering and securing new driver roles even easier for applicants. For more information, please visit https://www.yodeldriver.co.uk/ or text ‘Deliver’ to 84433 to learn more about specific roles at Yodel.
