Post Office Graduate Scheme

Post Office is an integral part of every community upheld by the dedication and service of our Postmasters. In a world that's constantly evolving, we recognise the importance of adapting and growing. As we navigate the shifting landscapes of a digital age, our commitment to evolving is stronger than ever; without losing the essence of personal touch that defines us. Our journey forward is one of reflection, learning, and positive change.

Whilst there is much work to be done, we're looking for people ready to think differently in tackling the challenges ahead – people who possess resilience and a deep sense of responsibility towards our postmasters and the communities they serve. This mission drives us, ensuring that we remain focused on our purpose and strategic intent. If you're inspired by the prospect of making a meaningful difference and contributing to a future where Post Office can stand as a model of renewed progress and integrity, we want to hear from you. Join us on our journey to make Post Office a business that belongs to and serves everyone, shaping a new future legacy.

Our commitment to embracing diversity extends beyond just words. We actively foster an inclusive workplace that values the unique perspectives and contributions from all colleagues. We hold the belief that Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion are not just vital but fundamental to our success and growth. Our priority lies in shaping a business that mirrors the diverse communities we reach, truly making Post Office 'Everybody's Business'. As an equal opportunity employer, we value and celebrate the differences among our people, ensuring that our practices reflect our dedication to inclusivity and equal representation for all.

Our People

Our people are the driving force behind our business. Whether they are in our branches or supporting from our head office, we are proud of the energy, commitment and customer focus our people all have in common.

Our people reflect the diversity of the communities in which we live and work, and the customers we serve. We want to celebrate the diversity of our workforce, and this means embracing, valuing and celebrating the things which make us different.
