Yodel colleagues star in national recruitment campaign
Parcel carrier launches www.yodelopportunities.co.uk as part of national push to recruit top talent into the business
Independent parcel carrier Yodel has announced the launch of a national recruitment campaign celebrating the everyday heroes within its business. The campaign, marked by the launch of Yodel’s new recruitment website, www.yodelopportunities.co.uk, is seeking to encourage more people to consider a career with the delivery company.
The dedicated recruitment site includes an overview of all opportunities within the Yodel business and features videos of Yodel colleagues telling their own stories of what it is like to work there. Roles advertised on the site include employed and self-employed drivers as well as opportunities in Yodel’s head offices, sort and transport hubs and local customer delivery depots.
The website launch is supported by a campaign featuring photos and videos of Yodel colleagues and comes as Yodel creates an additional 3,000 jobs nationwide to handle the increase in parcels in the run up to Christmas.
This is the first time that Yodel has put its people at the centre of its recruitment campaign and reflects the company’s desire to celebrate the hard work and commitment of all colleagues, from those in behind-the-scene back office roles to the drivers who are the face of the business.
Lynne Graham, people director at Yodel, explained: “Our colleagues are the heart and soul of our business and our new recruitment site celebrates the hard work and dedication they show every day. In an increasingly competitive market we understand that quality people and great customer service are the key to our success. That’s why we’ve created a mobile-friendly recruitment site and advertising campaign that lets our colleagues tell their own story, in their own words. We’ve every confidence that this strategy will encourage more passionate, hardworking people to consider a career with Yodel.”
Candidates can visit www.yodelopportunities.co.uk or text ‘Deliver’ to 84433 to learn more about specific roles at Yodel, find out about the values behind the business and apply for current opportunities.
Yodel colleagues who feature in the new campaign include Daniel Costa, an employed driver based at Yodel’s Leamington Spa customer delivery depot; Mike Wilson, a self-employed driver from Farnborough; Penny Wiggin, an employed driver from Lichfield; Andrew Jackson, a self-employed courier from Ipswich; Samuel Mehmi, an employed HGV driver based at Yodel’s Wednesbury transport hub and Yasemin Kurt, an employed HGV driver also from Wednesbury.
The carrier is also signed up to the Ministry of Defence’s Armed Forces Covenant, and actively engages with a number of organisations to support the military and ex-Forces personnel as they transition to civilian life and make them aware of the opportunities available at Yodel.
