Post Office Graduate Rotational Scheme

The Post Office has thrived at the heart of high streets and local communities across the UK for over 370 years.  As one of the country’s most trusted brands, we take our commitment to providing essential services to customers across the UK very seriously. We’re the UK’s largest retail network, as well as the largest financial services provider in the UK, with over 11,500 branches nationwide – more than all the UK’s banks and building societies put together. We do this nearly entirely on a franchise basis in partnership with independent business owners who operate post offices, known as Postmasters, as well as other retail partners.
We know that the best way to provide a great service for customers is to evolve our business and adapt to their changing needs. That’s why we have a range of over 170 products and services, from personal financial services like banking, insurance, payments, and travel money, to telecoms and, of course, mails. And we’re improving our online and in store experience for customers. We know that our customers never stop changing, so neither will we. We're here, in person, for the people who rely on us.

We are currently undergoing Europe’s biggest digital transformation, meaning there is no better time for graduates to join us to help transform the way our retail division operates, making it more accessible than ever.

Our Ways of Working underpin everything we do, they are the “How” of our business strategy. They differentiate our business and aim to inspire great behaviours and align our colleagues around specific actions in order to be the organisation we want to be and achieve our business goals.

By living the Ways of Working each day, you will help make that vision a reality and enable our cultural transformation. In short: Working in partnership, as one team, we deliver amazing results!
