HERMES UK is looking for over 10,500 ‘parcel people’ as it invests £100 million to expand and meet the demand created during lockdown and the continuing growth in the home deliveries sector.

The company is looking for around 1,500 full-time staff, including roles at head office in Yorkshire, and throughout its UK network for drivers, warehouse operatives, managers and supervisors. There are also opportunities for another 9,000 self-employed couriers nationwide, who will have the option of becoming SE+ couriers with guaranteed holiday pay as part of Hermes’ deal with the GMB Union.
