Driver opportunities

Smiths News has fixed regular routes available for self-employed drivers where you can support the delivery of newspapers, magazines and products to retailers around the country.

You will display efficient and excellent customer service, and support working towards pack accuracy, ensuring compliance with legislation, health and safety, and security standards.

Average annual contract values range from £22,000 to £35,000+, with weekly invoicing and payment, there is also plenty of potential to expand your horizons by taking on additional routes. We want to see your business grow with us.

Providing your services to us as a self-employed delivery driver is a fantastic way for you to earn extra income while enjoying the security of working for a leading brand as well as the flexibility of fitting in with other contracts and commitments you might have.

As we work during the early hours of the morning, many of our current self-employed contractors finish with us and pick up additional work on the same day elsewhere.


If you own a large van with a payload of 1,000kg, can help deliver our stock during the hours of 2am-8am and enjoy fixed local delivery drops, then get in touch with us.
