What does being self-employed mean at Yodel?

When we talk with our self-employed drivers, one of the things they tell us they love so much about what they do is being their own boss. Being in charge of their own time, their own vehicle and their own parcels. And, well, their own lifestyles too.

It’s about freedom.

Because no one knows what it takes to deliver parcels around your area better than you do. That’s why you’re in charge.

So, when you join us as an owner driver or a neighbourhood courier, you’ll be classed as self-employed. You’re still part of the Yodel team, of course – it just means you sort out your personal contribution, insurance and tax matters yourself. Which we’ll support you with.

It’s nothing to feel nervous about. Just remember that pretty much everyone around you will be  self-employed too – so if you ever need any help with anything, you’ve got plenty of people around you to ask for advice.
