Help to Grow a Trusted UK Brand; Looking for a Career in Management with Industry-Leading Training? Then Join the Organisation with More Branches Than All the UK Banks and Building Societies -- the Post Office. by Niki Chesworth

LOOKING for a career rather than just a job? Then the Post Office Trainee Management Scheme offers a fantastic opportunity for anyone with ambition and drive.

As one of the biggest retail networks in the country, with more than 11,500 branches and 19 million customers every week, as well as a growing direct sales business, the Post Office is looking for enthusiastic people with management potential to work in this changing and exciting business during a huge transformational period.

The Trainee Management Scheme is a fast-track start in retail management, open to people with a minimum of three A-levels at grade C or above. Candidates must have the desire to make a real difference and, as a diverse employer, the Post Office welcomes applications from all backgrounds.

"We're proud of our heritage, but we are even more excited by our future in growing business in the communities in which we live and serve," says Mathew Starks, HR director of Post Office Ltd. "That is why we are offering exceptional career prospects to outstanding people who are looking for an alternative to university.

"We recognise that life is not all about exams and academic studies. We want the kind of people who rise to every day challenges, enjoy making things happen for customers."

WHAT THE SCHEME OFFERS

Joining the Trainee Management Scheme enables you to earn while you learn, within a dynamic and fast-paced sales industry. It provides trainees with the opportunity to gain a management qualification as well as the skills to lead a team within the Post Office branch network in just two to three years.

"This is an exciting role where you'll work and develop with other likeminded individuals who are dedicated to delivering excellent customer service and leading a team to achieve outstanding results," adds Matthew.

The purpose of this scheme is to build talent pools of future middle and senior managers across the Post Office network. To achieve this, individuals will progress through a two- to threeyear development programme that will equip them to manage teams and deliver the 170 products and services the Post Office offers.

SO WHAT IS THE POST OFFICE LOOKING FOR IN CANDIDATES?

"You'll have a real passion to succeed and have flexibility, drive, motivation and resilience," says Roger Gale, general manager of the Crown Branches.
