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.
