166,340 people sign up for 4,000 jobs

Post has received 166,343 requests to participate in the selective process with which it will cover 4,005 jobs from your last job offer, a figure that multiplies by more than forty the number of positions offered, according to the public postal company.

The operator considers that this high number of applications "reflects the recognition of the company as a quality employer, which offers opportunities to obtain stable employment and develop a solid professional career."


Up to 2,600 positions are to be distributed

The applications are for the last job offer launched by Correos, which also constitutes its largest selection process in the last decade. The new jobs offered are distributed throughout the provinces of the country. The bulk, some 2,618 positions, will be used as delivery postman, another 725 for postal classification agent and the remaining 662, for customer service personnel.

Madrid, with 831 seats, is the autonomous community with the largest number of places, followed by Catalunya (826), Andalucía (654) and Comunidad Valenciana (419).

The public postal company incorporates these new workers based on the staff replacement rate granted by the Budgets and the agreement that the company reached with its unions last December for which it promised to generate a total of about 11,200 jobs fixed until 2020.

This agreement, signed with the unions CCOO, UGT, CSIF and Free Trade Union in December 2018, contemplates the replacement of 11,200 jobs that have been completed by 80% in a period of nine months.


Two offers in one process

Thus, the 4,055 employees that the postal operator will select this year are those derived from the replacement rates of the years 2017 and 2018. However, Correos has decided to jointly undertake the job offers corresponding to the previous two years, unifying them into a single process "for reasons of efficiency, general interest and rationality of processes," the company explained at the time.

Thus, of the total of 4,055 new employees that the company will select this year, 1,869 correspond to the replacement rate of 2017 and another 1,612 workers, to that of 2018.
