Dave Cunnington

International Operations Director.

I joined Royal Mail Group as a postman during my gap year. But it wasn’t long before I saw the potential of the company and re-joined as an A Level management entrant.

Colin Sharp

Business Development Manager, Wholesale.

Before joining Royal Mail Group in 2013, I was working for myself selling furniture in a very difficult climate.  I took on a part-time position as a postman to supplement my income as my daughter was getting married, but soon realised that the opportunities to progress were far too good to give up.  Find Out More

Head of Customer Marketing Communications.

And I soon realised the scale of opportunity available to me. With an open-mind and belief in my own abilities, I have jumped at every chance of progression.  Find Out More

I joined Royal Mail Group as I needed some part time work while at University. I started out as a Casual Data Inputter after seeing the advert in my local newspaper.  Find Out More

Ross Hutchison

Delivery Sector Manager

I first worked as a postie for the summer before I started university. After a year on my course I decided that engineering really wasn’t for me and went straight back to being a postie.  Find Out More
