Company Profile - Royal Mail

Overview

Royal Mail is undergoing a transformation. For the last 360 years, we have held a monopoly on postal services in the UK. But that's all about to change.

With the market being opened up to competition for the first time, we need to give ourselves the edge - becoming more competitive, more dynamic and more commercial in our approach.

Career Opportunities

We offer graduate opportunities in four areas of our business:

Operations - is at the heart of our business. If you thrive on a challenge, want to develop hands-on leadership skills from day one, you will never find another opportunity like this.

HR - putting people at the centre of everything we do. Opportunities will exist across the HR function to develop generalist and specialist skills to become an HR professional

Finance - fundamental to returning Royal Mail to long-term profitability. We need people with a passion for Finance, ready to seize the chance to gain professional qualifications and carve out fast moving careers in Finance.

Sales and Marketing - needs people to meet the threat of market liberalisation and competitor activity head on. We need people ready for the challenge of helping us reach our radical and ambitious plans for the future
