Royal Mail to hire 1000 new workers [Independent Television News Limited (UK)]
(Independent Television News Limited (UK) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Royal Mail has announced it will deliver 1000 new jobs as part of a £75 million investment programme.
The programme is part of Royal Mail Group's strategy to grow its UK express parcels business as online retailing continues to increase.
It was reported, in the last financial year, that the group's parcels businesses accounted for almost half of the group's revenues.
Royal Mail Group's chief executive Moya Greene said: "Our strategy is to convert the rise in parcel volumes into profitable growth. That means becoming a much more customer-focused company being run on commercial lines and investing in new, vital technology.
"The investment will enable Royal Mail Group's express parcels business to meet the rapid growth in demand in the business-to-business, business-to-consumer and consumer-to-consumer markets."
The expansion is expected to include two new depots in Cornwall and Hampshire, a new parcel processing centre in Chorley with a further nine existing depots also set to expand.
