Why We Love Being Couriers

I joined the Urb-it Community and became a Courier because I loved the idea of discovering new places around London, meeting new people, and building relationships with local businesses. The ability to choose my own hours has really given me a sense of freedom at work.

- Eve, joined Urb-it in December 2019
