Here at Royal Mail we do something special. Together, we make a difference to people every day. And the 150,000 people that work here are at the heart of that. Passionate and ambitious, every single person plays their part in creating a Royal Mail the public can rely on now, and in the future.  Our apprentices are passionate people with a natural curiosity for how things work and the tenacity to see a job all the way through to the end.


And our apprentices are pivotal to the future of Royal Mail. Their passion and enthusiasm extends to every element of what they do. And as the UK's third largest employer, we offer apprenticeship and trainee management opportunities on a different scale to other businesses. The service we offer our customers is absolutely essential to people and companies across the country, so to make it happen we need people who truly love what they do. We deliver six days a week to more than 29 million addresses across the UK. Our vision is to be recognised as the best delivery company in the UK and across Europe. But we can't do that without attracting the very best talent. So we offer apprenticeships that give a genuine insight into Royal Mail and our processes, and trainee management schemes that offer a fast-track into the business.

receiving a salary. All of which will set you up for a successful future. That could mean taking on more responsibility, further training and development, or looking for new opportunities across the business.
