There's some good news for lads with a car who fancy earning a bit of extra pocket money. Amazon are reportedly willing to pay you £15 an hour to deliver parcels.
Using an 'Uber' style employment model, the online retail giant will pay people up to £15-an-hour for getting packages to customers - with delivery drivers who are able to choose their own hours.
Known as 'Amazon Flex', the scheme will be piloted in Birmingham this month before being rolled out across the country.
Amazon has already posted a recruitment advertisement on the Birmingham sections of Craigslist.

The post reads: "Earn £13-£15 per hour including tips delivering packages with Amazon.
"All you need is a vehicle, an Android phone, and some free time.
"This is a great opportunity to be your own boss, deliver when you want and make some extra cash."
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has previously said that the company is eventually hoping for customers to receive their purchase within half-an-hour of ordering.
Applicants need to be 18 or older, have the right to work in the UK and pass a background check.
However, employment is not guaranteed, with the post adding: "We aim to ensure that the number of packages you are assigned to deliver within your block is realistic, taking into account congestion and the primary requirement to drive safely.
Fifteen thousand products are already available within an hour of purchase from Amazon's Prime service.
