Evri set to recruit thousands more staff

Delivery service, Evri, is gearing up to employ over 5,000 more workers across the UK.

This latest round of recruitment will take Evri to 10,000 new staff this year, as reported by Retail Gazette.

The jobs on offer include delivery drivers, customer service roles and staff to work at its hubs and depots.

The business, previously called Hermes, has seen a big growth in business in recent months. It is also starting preparations for the busy Christmas period.

Parcel delivery volumes have soared over pre-pandemic levels, with Evri delivering 2.5m parcels every day throughout June and July.

The company delivers 730m parcels a year and serves 12m customers a week, through its five hubs, 27 depots, 550 delivery units and 24,000 self-employed couriers.

Evri works with more than 80% of UK retailers and has benefited from the rise in popularity of marketplaces and pre-loved websites, such as Vinted.
