Is being a delivery driver a good job?

Having a ‘good job’ can be subjective and often depends on what you value about your career. However, if you value flexible working hours, exercise, and a mix of social and solitary time, a delivery driver job may really suit your lifestyle.

Here’s a list of just some of the reasons why delivery drivers love what they do:

1. Flexible working

Fit your work around your lifestyle with a job that often lets you set your own schedule. Night owl or early bird, there’ll be a delivery driver job out there for you, giving you more control of your working hours.

2. Work life balance

Forget the 9-5 grind, a delivery driver job can give you a better work life balance. Whether it’s picking up the kids, making doctor’s appointments or fitting around a second job, the flexibility can give you a better outlook on work and your life outside it.

3. Time outside

A delivery driver job is also different to an office role because you’ll spend most of the day travelling around in your vehicle or on foot. So, if you’re the outdoorsy type, you’ll enjoy the fresh air and exercise compared to being in a stuffy office environment.

4. More exercise

You won’t just be getting more steps in as a delivery driver, you’ll also be lifting and carrying weights when you load up your vehicle and offload parcels at people’s homes.

5. Good social balance

If you’re the kind of person who enjoys socialising just as much as time alone, this might be the ideal role for you. On the one hand you’ll be in your vehicle listening to music or a good podcast, on the other you’ll be chatting with customers and interacting with your team too.
