CitySprint To Create 1,000 Christmas Delivery Jobs

CitySprint, a courier firm, has said that it will be taking on an extra 1,000 Christmas staff this year.

The company is looking for hundreds of motorcycle, car and van drivers to help them cope at their peak delivery times before and during the festive break.

CitySprint employs 3,500 staff on a permanent basis but will swell its ranks by almost 30 per cent over the next few weeks.

Chief Executive Officer at CitySprint, Patrick Gallagher, said: “Peak season is one of the most demanding times of the year for our customers, with delivery volumes increasing significantly both for CitySprint and our retail brand, On The Dot.”

“We are committed to providing each of our clients with a first-class service all year round, which is why we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure our fleet is prepared to face anything that comes our way,” added Mr Gallagher.

Speaking to the Sun, Des Daunt, a van courier explained why he enjoyed working for CitySprint, saying: “Working with CitySprint is great. Being able to choose delivery jobs as and when I want gives me the flexibility that I was looking for to continue working part-time as a locksmith.”

“I have my own van, which I use both for my work as a locksmith as well as for deliveries. The team there are fantastic — they’re always on hand to help out if you have any questions or requests. If you enjoy meeting people, don’t like being stuck behind a desk and are looking for work which gives you choice, flexibility and a sense of freedom, I highly suggest you give them a try,” added Mr Daunt.
