NFSP Relief Scheme

Need a break? 

At HR:4UK we understand the difficulties involved in finding cover when working as a subpostmaster. That’s why we offer a specialised relief scheme designed to give you the ultimate peace of mind. 

Our relief schemes cover the whole of the UK, and are regularly relied upon by subpostmasters to take a much needed holiday or to cover sickness absence, typically for between 1-2 weeks at a time. 

HR:4UK have managed the relief scheme on behalf of the NFSP for over 25 years. All members are previous subpostmasters, and you can be sure that they are thoroughly vetted with credit and document checks. 

Each relief scheme member is responsible for their own charges, however, they are obliged to provide day rates (include travel) so that you as a subpostmaster are always aware of the total costs before you make a decision. 

Our Schemes

We are proud to offer two distinct relief schemes, a free register and a chargeable register:

Free Register

  • Relief scheme members’ contact details and telephone numbers are passed directly onto subpostmasters seeking relief cover in their immediate post code area. 

Chargeable Register

  • Subpostmasters provide details of the office duties that they require covering, along with a date range and postcode area. We then search for a relief scheme member to match the vacancy.
  • Subpostmasters pay to use this matching service and it is designed to provide their business with additional safeguarding measures.

We receive a huge amount of enquiries for relief bookings, especially during the sunny summer months. As such, we’re always looking to expand our relief scheme membership. So, if you’re interested in becoming a member, or know someone who is, then why not contact us today and we can continue to help many more subpostmasters like yourself with this amazing service. 

Simply call 01455 444 222 or email [email protected] to get started: we’re always happy to help!
