Additional Information

Polish national postal operator Poczta Polska has announced that it will create 500 new jobs across Poland. The company will recruit prisoners within the Work for Prisoners Programme which was initiated by the Ministry of Justice. New employees will sort shipments at the company's units across Poland. After the large dismissal programmes carried out within several previous years affecting thousands of jobs, Poczta Polska is currently facing a lack of sufficient number of employees at some of its offices across the country. 

Update  (07/04/2017): Poczta Polska has announced that it will create  440 additional jobs in 2017. It implies that the company will hire in total 940 employees by the end of 2017. The company conducted a survey on demand for personnel among its units across the country and it decided that the new positions will be created mainly in delivery departments. In 2016, Poczta Polska created over 1,000 jobs and raised salaries for the first time in ten years.
