About the role

As a Self Employed Owner Driver, you would be in charge of your own business, while being backed by the world’s largest delivery network. Royal Mail promise to promptly prepare and pay your invoices weekly, accommodate your preferred route wherever possible and give you up-to-date tools for the role, including Royal Mail latest delivery technology.

About you

Organised and efficient, you’ll need a long wheel-based van (either owned by you or hired) and a full driving licence that covers your vehicle. In an ideal world your licence would be clean, but it definitely shouldn’t have more than 6 penalty points. You’ll also be able to arrange route cover if you’re unable to perform your route. 

As well as vehicle insurance which must cover the carriage of goods for hire and reward you will also need; 
£5 million Public Liability insurance
£5 million Employers Liability insurance
£25,000 Goods in Transit insurance.
