About An Post

Hero image for An Post

An Post is changing, from an old world dominated by Mail and cash distribution to a new world more focused on e-commerce and financial services. Join our journey of transformation as we bring great products and services to communities and businesses throughout Ireland.

We have restructured our company into two world-class businesses, An Post Mails & Parcels and An Post Retail, each with its own talented team and agreed long-term strategy.

Our Mails & Parcels business is rapidly growing our eCommerce and mail marketing businesses, offsetting declining mail volumes, while still delivering the highest quality postal service to every home and business in Ireland. We want to play a full role in Irish economic life as the backbone of eCommerce, making sure that communities across Ireland have the same access to goods as in major world cities.

Our Retail business is transforming to meet the needs of a broader range of customers, both face-to-face and online. We already manage more cash than any other organisation in Ireland and will seek to diversify and grow our financial and retail services while providing a trusted gateway to government services for our customers. We aim to re-invent the post office network so every town and major village in Ireland has a modern post office, providing the financial technology services our customers need in a cashless society.

There’s never been a more exciting time to join An Post. There are excellent career paths for those who stand out and deliver. Take the first step to career-launching opportunities by finding out more about our graduate employment programme.
