Online retail giant Amazon is aiming to have its products sent to customers’ within just 30 minutes of ordering – and you can make £15 an hour by delivering them.

The company’s Amazon Flex service will be piloted in Birmingham and then be rolled out across the rest of the country following a successful launch in America.

Applications have already opened for drivers to get on board, with interested parties requiring just an Android phone, a car and some time to spare.

Amazon is advertising the job as an opportunity to ‘be your own boss’ with drivers able to clock on and off whenever they please.

Despite the expected earnings being shown as between £13-£15 per hour on top of tips, the advert stresses that this can vary depending on the number of deliveries made.

‘Britain has a hugely entrepreneurial spirit, and we think there will be lots of people interested in earning extra money by delivering Amazon parcels in their spare time,’ the company said.
