Evri is set to embark on the largest recruitment campaign in its history after achieving record summer parcel volumes, reports the Times.
According to the report, parcel volumes at Evri “have risen sharply to above pre-pandemic levels amid record demand this summer”.
It is said that the company delivered more than 2.5 million parcels every day in the months of June and July.
CEO Martijn de Lange told the Times:
“Ahead of the busy festive period, we are about to embark on the biggest recruitment programme in our history. This follows another significant year of growth, supported by continued growth from online retailing, including marketplaces and pre-loved sites, as customers increasingly look to buy and sell second-hand products.”
Evri also claims that the additional 5,000 vacancies it is to offer shall bring the number of jobs it has created this year to 10,000.
