Deliveroo is looking to sign up new riders to deliver food from restaurants and grocery retailers across the town to customers.

With over 50,000 riders across the UK, the job is a great opportunity for people who have other commitments, such as existing work, or students who are looking for flexible work to fit around study.

Deliveroo’s arrival in Burnley will also be a major boost to local businesses, who will be able to reach new customers and grow their offering through delivery.

The award-winning delivery service was founded in 2013 by William Shu and Greg Orlowski and it now works with over 115,000 best-loved restaurants and grocery partners from its London headquarters.

Deliveroo also has 2,000 employees in offices around the globe and it operates in nearly 800 towns and cities including Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, United Arab Emirates and Kuwait.

Harrison Foster, Deliveroo’s UK regional director, said: “We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in Burnley and we’re excited to be launching next month. We’re really excited to be creating new work opportunities for local people.

“The team is looking for people with passion, drive and great customer service who are seeking the added benefit of flexible work, amongst other perks."

Anyone interested in applying for the jobs is asked to go to the Deliveroo website.

The company has revealed that rider satisfaction has never been as high, in part due to the vital role that riders are carrying out in their communities as ‘key workers’ and the strong public support they have received during the pandemic.

The business offers all riders free medical insurance and other perks, such as free training courses for riders and their families.
