UPS UK is to hire 1,400 seasonal employees over the festive period. The parcel service expects to deliver around 750 million packages globally during the holiday season, around a 5 per cent increase on last year.
“The growing package volumes associated with holiday shipping coincide with rising customer expectations of swift, stress-free deliveries,” said Luis Arriaga, president, UPS UK, Ireland & Nordics. “UPS’s global network allows us to offer shoppers and retailers a wide range of products and services, which can be adapted to meet their needs. These seasonal hires will help us meet the rising demand.”
