Delivery giant Yodel has announced plans to recruit thousands of new employees to help it deal with the Christmas period.
The Liverpool-headquartered company is looking to full 4,000 roles across its network. However, the figure is 311 lower than last year.
A variety of roles are available at Yodel’s 50 locations nationwide - including employed and self-employed couriers, day and night parcel sorters, and team managers.
The company said the latest recruitment drive follows a series of infrastructure investments and will "support the business as it scales up operations for peak".
Chief executive Mike Hancox said: "Christmas is always our busiest time of the year, but with 2022 bringing additional World Cup related shopping, we’re anticipating a festive season like never before.
"There are a variety of roles available, with many presenting an opportunity to grow into long-term careers. By joining Yodel, you will become part of a nationwide family and have options to work either full or part-time to suit your lifestyle."
Yodel added it has recorded a profitable financial year "after a year of significant growth". The company has not yet published its latest annual accounts.
The company's parent, Logistics Group Holdings, which is owned by the billionaire Barclay family, posted pre-tax profits of £17.6m for the 12 months to June 30, 2021, a rise from the £41.8m loss it reported for the prior year.
Its revenue also surged from £520.6m to £676m over the same period.
