If you are looking for a new job whether full or part-time or maybe just looking to make some extra money over Christmas then have you thought about being a delivery driver?

Becoming a delivery driver has many benefits and can be a job you can work around your family and home commitments. It's a great way to get cash in an emergency when you need urgent bills paid too as it is very flexible.  Let's have a look at the benefits of being a delivery driver this Christmas and into the New Year and why it has become a popular job. This is an advertorial.

Working for yourself

Many delivery drivers work for themselves. This can mean it's a great way to be your own boss and not have anyone to answer to. Working for yourself can mean you pick your own hours, and you can do as little or as much work as you want. Alternatively, if you work for a company you may have to work set hours but may get more perks such as sick pay. It's worth looking into both options.

Flexible working

Being a delivery driver means you can work flexible hours. It's the sort of job you can work around other commitments. Perhaps you have a young family, help look after elderly relatives or have another part-time job. Maybe you want the flexibility to work more hours when you need to or fewer hours when you want. Being a delivery driver means you can do all that.

No taking work home

With some jobs, you take work home but not with this one. You don't have to think about work when you are not delivering parcels. This can help to make it less stressful than some jobs, even though you may have tight targets to meet.

Doesn't need much training 

Of course, you need a full clean driving licence to be a delivery driver and you need access to a car as well as business insurance. If you don't have courier insurance you can get into a lot of trouble,  however, being a delivery driver doesn't need a lot of training. You don't need paper qualifications and you don't need a degree education. This makes it a job that many people can do with the minimum of training. 

Out meeting people

If you are a social person being a delivery driver can fit with your personality. With food delivery for example you are meeting people all the time, and it helps to be pleasant and chat with them as it may get you a tip. If you don't like being behind a desk and love being out of the house then it fits with your personality too. You are out it the fresh air making deliveries in all weathers and some people love this idea.

You drive a lot

If you enjoy driving then this is the job for you. You can listen to your music as you drive, and listen to audio tapes or podcasts. You get to see areas of cities, towns and countryside you have never been to before. 

As you can see there are many benefits of being a delivery driver and now is the perfect time to start. Let me know, have you ever considered being a delivery driver?
