Delivery firm Hermes has announced it is looking for 10,500 ‘parcel people’ as part of a £100m expansion.
The expansion in capacity across the UK comes in response to the huge demand created by people shopping online at home during lockdown.
Hermes is looking to fill 1500 full-time positions.
Martijn de Lange, CEO at Hermes UK, said: “The pandemic has expedited the already phenomenal growth of online shopping and we see no sign of this changing.
“As a result, it is important that we have the right infrastructure and people in place to support this.
“This is good news for the many people who have sadly had their income affected and we are pleased to be able to support the UK economy with so many jobs at this time.”
