Job Details

Get paid more...To go the extra mile(s)

Right now, the cost of living has never been higher. So, because we're in the business of delivering promises as well as parcels, we're raising our game and giving you even more reasons to join us - like more money. Typically our couriers can earn anything between £16 - £18p/h (paid per parcel)

We've introduced Business Mileage Payment

We've changed our payment strategy to pay our new couriers daily from the moment they pick up their parcels, to their first delivery of the day you will receive a payment towards your travel distance and time. It's a total gamechanger. And that extra cash adds up to a much more lucrative earning opportunity for you.

We'll pay towards your mobile phone

We'll make a daily payment towards your smart phone and data; which should also help towards your device insurance too.

We'll pay competitively for each parcel you deliver or collect

You can realistically deliver between 16-25 parcels an hour depending on the area and your experience, for up to 6 days a week. The more you deliver. The more you earn. Our couriers deliver parcels up to a maximum weight of 9kg and 50 x 30 x 30cm in size.

We'll give you freedom and flexibility

You can plan your own route or our handy app can do this for you. We offer the following options: Monday to Saturday (6 days) or for those looking for more flexibility Monday to Wednesday or Thursday to Saturday, Saturday only or casual couriers will deliver on various days when required.

We'll develop and support you

You get all the independence of being self-employed, plus the backing of our expert team and access to a Yodel representative, to answer any questions.

We'll offer regular work on familiar routes

We deliver parcels for some of the biggest retailers around. So, there's no shortage of parcels to deliver. Plus, you'll be able to stay local and get to know the roads and customers. You have two options when joining Yodel to either become a Fixed Courier or Casual Courier. Fixed couriers will be given a specific postcode area and this will be yours to own. Casual couriers will be vetted and trained by our teams but will be called upon to cover vacant areas when required.

The life of a courier

Each day is what you make it. You can plan your own route, which will keep things fresh and interesting. And at each delivery or doorstep, use your mobile to scan parcels and make sure they're safely received by the customer, so there's no difficult technology for you to get to grips with.

What makes a great courier?

Delivery experience isn't necessary as long as you love driving.

You'll also need:

Preferred vehicle is a large car or small van (up to 3.5 tonne)

Confidence behind the wheel

Great planning and organisation skills

Relevant insurance (we can help you with this)

A suitable mobile device, to download our Courier app which will help you prepare and plan your routes more easily, as well as allowing you to liaise directly with customers.

To be friendly and enjoy getting to know your customers

To handle your own tax returns (we can help you with this too).

Come and join us

People are ordering more and more online, which means the number of parcels needing to be delivered is at an all-time high and still growing.
