• New recruits will support CitySprint during the 2023 festive season as the business continues to see a surge in logistics demand
  • Roles are available nationwide, with increased need in London, Cardiff, Oxford, Plymouth, Manchester, Nottingham, Edinburgh, and Gatwick

CitySprint — the UK same day distribution company — has announced that it is recruiting couriers across London and the UK more widely. New recruits will support with increased logistics demand during the 2023 festive season and will play a pivotal role in driving continued business growth.

The weeks leading up to Christmas are the busiest period annually for businesses and retailers across the UK, seeing delivery volumes spike and turnaround times rapidly narrow.

The new recruits will join CitySprint’s team of more than 3,000 couriers across the UK and will work across a wide range of vehicles, with a particular hiring focus on long wheel-based drivers. Demand for drivers also extends to CitySprint’s electric vehicles, with the company’s fleet continuing to expand.

Together, these new couriers will help to ensure a smooth service for CitySprint’s wide variety of cross-industry clients.

Recruitment is focused across London and the UK, with a specific focus across the following cities:

  • London
  • Cardiff
  • Oxford
  • Plymouth
  • Manchester
  • Nottingham
  • Edinburgh
  • Gatwick

Discussing the benefits of working as a courier, Karl Davies, a courier for CitySprint working for Wickes and Travis Perkins, said: “Before joining CitySprint in 2020 I worked in the building trade for 40 years. I decided I needed a change, and the role of a courier ticked every box for me, giving me the opportunity to travel to different places, have true flexibility, and meet new people on a daily basis. Working at CitySprint has given me all of this and more, and as an employer they have been incredibly supportive throughout the journey. It’s a career move I’ll never regret — I can’t recommend it enough!”

Mark Footman, Chief Operations Officer at CitySprint, commented: “At CitySprint, our focus is always on providing our clients with the best possible service, and ensuring they’re able to do the same for their own customers in return. The festive season is crunch time for the logistics industry, and shoring up the supply chain is integral to successfully meeting rising demand. This is why we take the measure every year to bolster our teams and make sure they’re in the best position to provide a first-class service for our customers. As always, we’re dedicated to keeping our client’s operations moving during this year’s peak season.”
