Royal Mail has started a recruitment drive to take on 33,000 people to help deliver packages and envelopes over Christmas.
This year they are taking an extra 10,000 people compared to normal because of an expected rise in the amount of post being sent because of the pandemic.
The staff will be employed between this month and October with jobs available across the UK.
Royal Mail has also said it would be adding to its 115,000-strong workforce by hiring more people for their Covid-19 testing kit collection service.
