Company Company Profile


A name you know, a business you don’t

Royal Mail is more than a household name. It’s more than the colour red. It’s delivering the six-days-a-week, one-price-goes-anywhere postal service to more than 29 million addresses across the UK and introducing new products and services to meet the changing needs of our customers.

Few businesses offer the scale and scope of opportunity you’ll find at Royal Mail. We’re currently undertaking one of the biggest industrial transformations in the UK in recent history, which presents an abundance of new challenges – not to mention a whole host of new and exciting opportunities. And joining us as a graduate, you can expect to receive the training and guidance you’ll need to face this fast-paced business head on.

For graduates who want to be responsible for keeping our mail moving, there’s our Operations Scheme. Taking your position at the front line of the business, you’ll learn on the job in one of our Mail Centres or Delivery Offices – and you’ll be managing a team of up to 40 from day one.

For those who want to shape the business from within our Commercial and Professional Functions, we offer four programmes: Commercial, HR, Finance and Technology. To join one of these programmes you’ll need to be forward thinking and ready to make a difference to the future of Royal Mail.

Whether you join us on a Professional Programme or on our Operations Scheme, you’ll embark on a programme specially designed to give you the skills you’ll need to make a real impact on the business. Rotating through a number of placements, you’ll get to grips with the size of the challenges you’ll face and regular training will prepare you to take your place in this FTSE 100 organisation.
