Parcel delivery company APC Overnight is making up to 100 jobs available to former City Link employees at its national sorting centre in Cannock, Staffordshire, with potentially even more available throughout the company's UK network of 115 depots.
The firm, which currently employs more than 500 people in the West Midlands, made the offer following the news that more than 2,000 people could lose their jobs as a result of City Link going into administration.
Speaking about the new vacancies APC Overnight CEO, Karl Brown, said: “This is an extremely difficult time for City Link staff members and their families. Following discussions with board members we’ve made the decision to prioritise City Link staff for the job vacancies we currently have on offer.
“We’re also making ourselves available to those small and medium sized independent businesses across the UK who have been left without a courier during the busy New Year period."
APC Overnight, which was founded in 1994, has overseen 20 years of successive growth. The company attributes its success to its unique setup, being a network of more than 115 independent delivery companies.
