Jobs hope for former City Link staff

A parcel delivery company is to make up to 100 jobs available to workers made redundant by the collapse of City Link.

APC Overnight said it would give priority to former City Link staff in filling vacancies at its national sorting centre in Cannock. APC Overnight chief executive Karl Brown confirmed that further posts may also be made available at 115 other APC depots throughout the UK.

Mr 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 New Year period.”

Staff at City Link have been told by administrators to expect “substantial redundancies”.
