CitySprint — a UK-based same day distribution company — is looking for 300 additional couriers across the UK, with the business focussing primarily on those with small and large vans as well as zero emission vehicles in larger areas.
The call for new couriers comes as the business continues to see uplifts in key logistics sectors.
The new couriers will be added to the pool of over 2,500 vans, bikes and cars, as CitySprint continues to grow its business and win new clients. They will provide support across all areas of the business, with a focus on supporting growth in retail sectors.
The couriers are required across the UK, with a particular need in the following cities:
Mark Footman, chief operating officer at CitySprint, said: “It’s been another fruitful year for CitySprint, as the business has seen substantial growth in several key sectors. From winning an array of new clients to the Group acquiring London-based same day courier company, Absolutely.
“Despite a commendable 3.4 million deliveries in the past year, we want to strengthen our fleet further to ensure we can continue providing the best possible service over the busy summer months. We’re excited to welcome new suppliers on board, to help us deliver on these promises and stay ahead of our competitors, as the business grows.”
In addition, CitySprint is looking to employ drivers for their electric vehicles as they continue to expand their overall electric vehicle fleet to over 200 by the end of 2023.
Ercan Bennett, a CitySprint courier (pictured), added: “I initially joined CitySprint as a courier off the back of a recommendation from a friend – fast forward 7 years and I haven’t looked back since! It’s been great meeting new people and experiencing different situations each day.
“I love the freedom of being a self-employed courier as well as the flexibility and pay schedule, which allows me to balance my work with my personal responsibilities. If you’re looking for job satisfaction and are someone who enjoys being on the go and meeting lots of new interesting people, then it’s the perfect job for you”
