Delivering Christmas with Parcelforce. 

Christmas is almost upon us bringing with it a host of multi drop driving opportunities for qualified, reliable, and flexible drivers.  

This is your chance to become an integral part of the Parcelforce logistical team helping to deliver a one-price-goes-anywhere postal service to 29 million addresses across the UK.  

Joining Parcelforce as a collection and delivery driver based out of Pelaw Grange in Newcastle you will be working independently to collect and deliver parcels to households and businesses throughout the local area and so local knowledge would provide a great advantage.  

The Pelaw Grange branch is located on a large industrial estate and is easily reached via the A693.  

You will be responsible for planning your route at the start of every shift providing you with the opportunity to work with efficiency and autonomy to complete your collections and deliveries your way, simply driving the route, scanning parcels on and off route, and interacting with customers providing the excellent levels of customer service that Parcelforce is known for.  

We know that all professional drivers pride themselves on their commitment to deliver on time whatever the load and so if you are a qualified and experienced driver who has the self-motivation and dedication to thrive in the driving force behind one of the UK's most trusted delivery companies we want to hear from you. Especially those who possess a great attitude to pulling together as a team and the flexibility to do what it takes to ensure all deliveries get out on time and safely into the hands of the customers.    

Parcelforce Newcastle is looking for qualified drivers who hold a full UK driving license permitting 3.5 ton vehicles. A clean license is preferred but drivers with up to 6 penalty points will be considered. Excellent communication skills are a must for this role as customer interaction is a key aspect of the Parcelforce service.  

Getting to know the employer is an important step when applying for a job, their core values provide a valuable insight into what being part of the team is all about and Royal Mail are a great example of a Company who pride themselves upon their employee led values and culture; "We're proud to work for Royal Mail. What we do matters to people. We listen. We're trusted. Each of us is respected. We go the extra mile for our customers and for each other. Everyone contributes and works together to deliver our promises, finding ways to be more successful."
