Do I have to apply online or can I just send in my CV?
We want to make sure we can track your application and that any one of our team can access it at any time, that’s why it’s important to be submitted through our careers website. Once you are in our system we can keep you updated on your progress, and consider you for other vacancies that may be suitable.
What should I consider before submitting my online application?
Make sure that you’ve included all information that is relevant to your application, uploaded your CV and included all your contact details. And last but not least, always remember to spell check!
What does the recruitment process look like?
to see what’s involved, from your initial application right through to an offer being made.
How should I prepare for an interview?
It’s a good idea to have a look on our website and find out a bit about us. You could pop into your local Doddle store too to make sure you are familiar with the surroundings and feel free to talk to a member of staff if you want to! If you require any reasonable adjustment to your interview or any stage of the recruitment process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How should I dress for my interview?
On the day we need you to ‘dress to impress’, not too flashy though or you’ll outshine our interviewers. Smart casual is fine, we love individuality and as long as you are presentable and make a good impression then that’s fine by us!
Do I need to take anything with me?
You don’t need to bring anything at interview stage unless instructed to do so in your confirmation email. Of course if there’s anything you’d like to show us that you think would support your application then feel free to bring it along.
What should I do if I’m unable to attend my interview?
Please let us know as soon as you are aware that you won’t be able to attend, we have lots of people who want to work at Doddle so we can fill the slot with someone else. But don’t worry, we know that sometimes things don’t go to plan so we will do our best to rearrange your interview if at all possible.
What’s it like to work in a Doddle store?
Our Doddle stores are at the heart of what we do, you will be dealing with customers on a daily basis, arranging for their parcels to be sent and handing over their parcels when they come to collect. You will also meet and greet the couriers in the back and check in deliveries. A huge part of the role is to spread the Doddle word, so we’ll ask you to go out and about, hand out leaflets, tell people about us and get them to sign up! Confidence and bags of personality is key, we need you to be as passionate about Doddle as we are!
What are the shift times?
Our opening times vary from store to store, however if you are offered a full time role we need you to be fully flexible as we don’t operate a fixed rota. You may work an early shift one week and a late the next. We have lots of different hours for our part-time retail roles and we can usually fit these around your other commitments. Our full time Head Office vacancies are a standard 40 hours a week.
I have a friend who wants to work at Doddle, how can I get them in?
Great stuff, some of our best people have come to us through word of mouth. If you are already a Doddle employee and you recommend a friend, you get £100 once they complete their probation (provided you are still employed by us of course). Cha ching!

I’ve been offered a job and have been asked to provide some documents. How can I get these to you?
