DEYA is always looking for reliable and honest field-workers to help us deliver and organise distributions.
Delivery contractors are recruited by our Team Leaders to deliver books in their local area. On average, a deliverer will deliver about 1000 books.
Deliverers collect the books in their own car or van from a local site, where they receive full training (including watching a training DVD) on how the books should be delivered. The books must normally be delivered within 7 days and the routes are then checked to ensure all customers have received a book in the proper manner.
We encourage our deliverers to put the directory (or other item) through the letter box or to hand it over personally to customers. If this is not possible they are asked to conceal the book safely outside or leave the book with a neighbour.
There is no standard payment as it depends on the number of books to be delivered, the size of the book, whether the delivery is in a town or rural area etc. Normally, however, you may expect to earn approximately £50 to £120.
If you are interested in becoming a delivery contractor, please complete our application form. You must have a car and a telephone.
Click Apply Now above to fill out our application form. Your details will be added to our database.
When we are carrying out a distribution in your area your details are forwarded to the local organiser (Team Leader). If you are not contacted it means that the local organiser already has sufficient delivery contractors. Your details will remain on our database, so should vacancies occur in the future you may be contacted.
No. If we have other work in your area we will contact you.

The payment for a route depends on many things, such as the size of the directory or catalogue, how many you will be delivering, the type of area (urban or rural), and so on. The local organiser will tell you the exact payment for a route before you decide if you wish to deliver for us.
You must be 16 or over to deliver. However you will also need a car or van, so unless you are helping someone else you will need to be at least 17 and hold a driving licence.
You will be delivering bulky items such as Phone Books, Yellow Pages or catalogues so you must have use of a car or van.
Books are collected from local distribution centres (we often hire places such as sports centres or rugby clubs). We will normally only be there for one morning or afternoon so everything needs collecting during that time.
Normally you would need to collect 2 car loads from our distribution centre (though it could be more or less). You may therefore need dry, clean and secure storage space for at least one car load.
All delivery contractors are required to watch a training DVD, and given distribution instructions to read. The local organiser will also go through what is required and is available during the distribution to offer any help and advice.
It depends. If you have a full-time day job then probably no as you would normally be required to collect the books on a week-day, and you may not be able to complete the delivery within 7 days. If you have a part-time job, or work shifts, you may be able to deliver. In this case fill out an application form and discuss your circumstances with the local organiser.
Deliveries must normally be completed within 7 days. Deliveries can only be made between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. (earlier in winter).
All routes are checked to ensure the delivery has been completed correctly before payment is sent out.
Payments is by cheque and will be posted to you 3 to 5 weeks after completion of the delivery, subject to satisfactory route checking.
Our Local Organisers, we call them Team Leaders, organise the delivery of a book in a local area of about 30,000 customers/
Team Leaders are responsible for the recruitment of the delivery contractors. They are assisted in this by being sent details of deliverers on our database and through the placement of adverts online and in local newspapers.
Team Leaders must ensure that all books are delivered in the correct manner and on time, and are responsible for managing their deliverers so that we achieve this aim.
Many of our Team Leaders work part-time or have family responsibilities, but wish to earn some extra money. If you are interested in becoming a Team Leader, please complete our application form.
We often require Team Leaders for only some local areas within the whole distribution area, or we may have had many applicants. Your details will remain on our database if we do require local organisers in future.
All new Team Leaders attend a 2 to 3 hour training session. Every aspect of the job will be covered by the trainer, and you will receive a detailed instruction booklet and all the paperwork required. Normally you will also meet some people who have already worked for us as Team Leaders.
All Team Leaders have a local 'Area Supervisor' who offers guidance and support. This person will almost certainly have worked as a Team Leader before, probably many times, and should be able to help you with any questions you may have. In addition each distribution has a 'Field Manager' and administrative support based at our office in Wokingham whom you are welcome to phone with any queries.
Your own car is not absolutely essential (though it is preferable) providing you have a friend or relative that can give you a lift when required. For example, leaving the training session and attending the distribution centre there will be a lot of paperwork to carry. You may also occasionally be required to re-deliver a book to a customer if we have had an enquiry.
It depends. If you have a full-time day job then probably no as you would be required to come to our training morning, and spend at least half a day at the local distribution centre. If you have a part-time job, or work shifts, you may be able to be a Team Leader. In this case fill out an application form and discuss your circumstances with us if we contact you.
Payment is by cheque and will be posted to you 3 to 5 weeks after completion of the distribution.
Our Routecheckers are responsible for verifying the delivery, and the quality of the delivery, when we are distributing a directory in a particular area. Routecheckers need to have a telephone line with line rental paid to BT, and a Broadband internet connection.
Routecheckers are responsible for telephone checking approximately 25 of our delivery routes on a particular distribution. Most Routechecking is done in the evening from about 5.00 pm until 8.00 pm although occasionally you will be required to make some calls during the day, for example business customers.
Full training is given on how to make the calls but it is very straight forward and involves accessing the telephone numbers via our website portal, asking the customer whether they have received their new directory and, if they have, how it was delivered. All responses are submitted on a web form.
Our Routecheckers have to be available most evenings to do checking during a 14 day period when the directory distribution is taking place. However, it is flexible work and many of our Routecheckers work part-time or have family responsibilities, but wish to earn some extra money.
When making the calls Routecheckers are required to enter a prefix so that calls are routed via our Telecom company. We therefore pay the cost of all calls and they are logged for auditing purposes.
If you are interested in becoming a Routechecker, please complete our application form.
It is because we have sufficient Routecheckers at present but please bear in mind that the amount of delivery we do month to month varies and we may require additional Routecheckers later.
All new Routecheckers are first contacted by one of our trainers. If the work is suitable the trainer will agree a time when the training takes place. It is done by phone and on your computer, and will last between 45 and 60 minutes. Every aspect of the job will be covered by the trainer, and you will receive a detailed instruction booklet for reference.
All Routecheckers have an 'Area Supervisor' who offers guidance and support. In addition each distribution has a 'Field Manager' and administrative support based at our office in Wokingham whom you are welcome to phone with any queries.
If you are not paying line rental to BT you will not be able to use the prefix to route calls via our Telecom company.
It depends. If you have an evening job then probably no. If you have a part-time job, or work shifts, you may be able to be a Routechecker. In this case fill out an application form and discuss your circumstances with us if we contact you.
We pay per connected call made so the more calls you make per hour the better the payment. We are legally obliged to pay at least the national minimum wage. However from our work-rate studies we would expect an average Routechecker to earn more than this. When making the calls Routecheckers are required to enter a prefix so that calls are routed via our Telecoms company. We therefore pay the cost of all calls and they are logged for auditing purposes.
Van teams are used for delivery in city centre areas and where we may be having difficulty recruiting delivery contractors.
A van 'team' might be two or three people working together with just one van, or more people with several vans.
Work may be available outside the local area if the team is willing to travel.
We may not require additional van teams at the moment. Your details will remain on our database if we do require more van teams in future.
Every person in the team will need to watch our training DVD, and they will be given a copy of our distribution instructions. A Field Manager will also meet with the team to run through what is required and answer any queries.
If you work outside of your local area there may be some work on and off throughout the year. If you just work within your local area it may be just once or twice a year.
Our Loaders and Car Park Supervisors organise and assist with the loading of directories at our distribution sites.
The work is on a temporary contracted basis for the duration of a particular distribution site. It involves off-loading directories from trailers, assisting with the loading of cars, directing traffic and logging collections. You need to be reasonably fit, hard-working, organised and have plenty of common sense.
If you are interested in loading please complete our application form.
We often require Loaders for only some local areas within the whole distribution area, or we may have had many applicants. Your details will remain on our database if we do require Loaders in future.
One of our local organisers will contact you if we have work available and will go through what is involved. It's not complicated but you need to be fit, willing to work hard and have common sense. On the day of the distribution site the Manager in charge on the day will give you the relevant instructions.
It depends. If you have a full-time day job, then probably no as our distribution sites take place during the day. If you have a part-time job, or work shifts, you may be able to be a Loader. In this case fill out an application form and discuss your circumstances with us if we contact you.
Payment is by cheque and will be posted to you approximately 2 weeks after the distribution site.
