Yodel hiring 7,000
After the utter shambles that was last Black Friday, Yodel has decided that they're not going to have a repeat performance this Christmas, and are hiring an extra 7,000 workers! If they muck this festive period up, then there's no hope.
You may remember that they had to stop doing collections from shops during Black Friday, as they struggled to clear the swamp of backlog parcels and the like. So, among the 7,000 jobs, there's going to be both full and part-time roles, with 800 new van drivers, as well as 3,000 self-employed drivers with their own vans. How about that?
Yodel said despite being seasonal, many of the roles are expected to become permanent.
Yodel executive chairman Dick Stead said: “Our recent research has shown that the 2015 Christmas period is set to break the mould once again, with nearly four times as many people planning to take advantage of the Black Friday online promotions.”
