Driving as a Courier for Yodel promises freedom. You’ll plan your route, get out on the open road and decide how much you deliver – and earn.

Self-Employed Courier Opportunities

This is for the kind of person who is happy to go the extra mile for people to get things right. Delivering parcels safely and with a smile, you will need organisational skills, confidence behind the wheel and your own car or van. As a Self-Employed Courier, you’ll be a big part of why so many people use our services.

To be a Self-Employed Courier that delivers promises as well as parcels, you don’t need delivery experience or livery on your vehicle. As the driving force of Yodel, we will support you from day one to ensure you’re ready to deliver your best. You can then start your engine and enjoy the great feeling that comes from making a difference to people in your local area.

All you need to apply for the role is a car or a small van (up to 3.5 tonne) and an Android or iOS smartphone that meets our minimum* specification. If your device does not meet this specification we may still be able to offer you an opportunity, however, those of you able to bring your own device will take preference over those without.

*Operating with Android 6 or iOS 13, with storage of at least 100Mb free, GPS, 5MP+ camera with flash/ torch, 3G/4G SiM, 2GB+ memory.


  • Great Earning Potential

    You’ll get out what you put in, because how much you earn is up to you. Typically, you could deliver around 30-120 parcels a day, 3-6 days a week, and get paid for each parcel that you deliver or collect.

  • Regular Work

    We deliver parcels on behalf of the biggest retail companies around, which offers the prestige of driving for major brands – and no shortage of deliveries if you want them.

  • Support On Hand

    Whilst being self-employed means handling things like taxes, we can link you with all sorts of experts for support, and a dedicated site rep for any questions.

  • Total Freedom

    You’ll need your own mobile device to download our great Courier App, the App will help you organise your route and track your workload – all in your own vehicle.
