Branches and representatives will be aware that LTB 159/21 communicated the Joint Statement Between Royal Mail National Distribution And The CWU On The 2021 National Recruitment Exercise Of LGV Drivers.  Phase 2 of the recruitment campaign had been due to commence on 14 June 2021 however unfortunately a slight delay has been experienced while the numbers and locations of vacancies were finalised by the business.

The department can inform you however that the Phase 2 activity will now commence on Monday 5th July 2021.  The recruitment will be open to C+E licence holders (Class 1 HGV) who also hold a valid DCPC.

All applications will need to be submitted via the Royal Mail SuccessFactors platform (Annex A).

Following a number of enquiries received by the department during the Phase 1 recruitment activity we would ask that anyone interested in progressing to one of the advertised roles ensures that they have the ‘CE’ (Class 1 HGV) category on their licence.  Individuals with C, C1 or ‘C1E’ licence categories only do not hold the required qualification and will not be eligible to apply for these roles. 

We would also advise members that Royal Mail will only consider applications for the site that has been applied for during the process via SuccessFactors.  Therefore, in order to maximise the potential of progressing to a professional driving role, members are encouraged to submit applications separately for each site that that they would be interested in within the geographical area required. 

There will be c395 vacancies available for application from the 5th July 2021 (full and part time roles).  Details of the location of the vacancies and requisition numbers for the roles are included as Annex B.  Internal candidates are requested to use these requisition numbers for applications.

Closing date for applications will be Sunday 18th July 2021.

Any enquiries in relation to this LTB should be addressed to Davie Robertson, Assistant Secretary, email: dwyatt@cwu.orgquoting reference: 211.07

Yours sincerely

Davie Robertson
