and live on Freeview channel 276
Evri has invested £45million in preparation for the busy period, to expand its capacity to meet the demand created by people shopping online.
Throughout the summer months, Evri has delivered more than two million parcels a day and is prepared to deliver around four million parcels a day in the run up to Christmas.
The 5,000 UK roles will be based either at the head office in Yorkshire, at one of its sites across the UK, remotely, or on the road.
Roles include warehouse operatives, supervisors, managers, van drivers and couriers.
Evri is currently looking for 140 couriers in the Normanton.
Couriers typically earn around £16 per hour and can enjoy the flexibility of delivering parcels any time between 8am and 8pm.
Couriers will often be delivering in their local area, within familiar surroundings and usually not too far from home which helps deliveries to be made around other commitments.

Gary Robinson, Director of Couriers and Final Mile at Evri, said: “As we head into our busiest period, we’re embarking on our biggest recruitment drive of the year.
"We’ve made it easy to submit an application, attend an introductory call with the local Community Delivery Manager and then begin training. We’ve seen couriers start at Christmas time and they’re still enjoying delivering for Evri 20 years later!”
