Smile Does Anyone Now Where To Find Vacancies For Catalogue Delivery Drivers??

Hi all, I would like to know if anyone can recommend where to find vacancies for delivery drivers for home shopping catalogues and how it works. I would like to become a driver for my area, but I'm not sure where to look. I have tried to contact a couple of companies via email but I get a response saying I need to put my account number on my email to get a reply!!! Any help would be greatly received.

I have seen adverts for yellow pages and thompson local directory deliverers just give them a call direct and they will tell you how to apply.
Also catalogues Grattan, Littlewoods etc ask them for advice.
My neighbour did it and parcelforce delivered them to him and he did the rest but he has moved now so can't tell you who he worked for.
Good luck tho!

I know that betterware are looking for people to deliver and collect their catalogues but I think you have to actually sell their stuff.

I saw the ad in my local Birmingham Mail free paper.

In answer to your question , Home Delivery Network or HDN is the name of the company Littlewoods use, same as NEXT .
You will have to apply to them directly for vacancies in your area Littlewoods do not recruit for them, they run as a seperate subsidery company.
