TNT doubles workforce in London

TNT doubles workforce in LondonTNT Post, the UK’s second largest private postal operator and main competitor to Royal Mail, is to double the size of its London workforce to 2,000 posties with a focus on jobs for the youth and long term unemployed.
The company currently operates a mail delivery service to businesses and consumers in Central, West and South West London from 12 delivery units.
This next phase of expansion will see the opening of four new delivery units in North West London and Harrow, with the recrutiment drive kicking off with the hiring of 400 posties in Camden, Willesden, Colindale and Harrow.
The flexibility of the roles has made them particularly appealing for local residents, including women returning to work, second jobbers, those balancing childcare commitments and school/college leavers.
The company runs its own Pre- Employment Training course which establishes a candidate’s suitability for the role and has worked with Job Centre Plus and Ingeus in North West London to fill the roles.
Posties will complete their deliveries using bicycles, and, for the first time, all letters are scanned, with a track and trace service to the door.
TNT Post further expanded its delivery service in November into Manchester and has plans to create 20,000 jobs across the UK over five years.
Chief executive Nick Wells said: “We are passionate about creating jobs. These jobs have been filled by people who may have found it difficult to get back into, or even join, the workforce. These jobs are not only good news for North West London and Harrow but are also good news for the UK economy.”
