Deliveroo's search for riders and drivers

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

The award-winning delivery service is looking for people who value on-demand, flexible work and want the freedom to choose when, where and how to work. It 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. It is also a good way to keep fit and earn money at the same time.

The company has seen rider demand soar this year and the company now works with 50,000 riders across the UK. This rapid growth in on-demand work underlines the vital role that Deliveroo is playing to provide work opportunities for riders in towns and cities across the UK.

The company has also revealed that rider satisfaction has never been as high, with 89% of riders saying they are satisfied, 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.

To keep riders safe while out on the road, the company offers all riders free insurance to ensure all riders are protected. The company also offers other perks, such as free training courses for riders and their families.

Berenice Cowan, Head of UK Expansion for Deliveroo said: “At last, we’ve arrived in Coleraine! We can’t wait to bring everyone great food from local and national favourites, and to help local chefs reach new customers. Hungry foodies, here we come!”

Deliveroo is focused on providing the ultimate food delivery experience. Customers have the option to schedule orders via the Deliveroo app up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible, in under 30 minutes, from independent eateries, traditional takeaways, high-quality chain restaurants, supermarkets and food and grocery retailers conveniently delivered to their homes.

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

Restaurants, takeaways and grocery retailers can apply at restaurants.deliveroo.com/en-gb to become a Deliveroo partner.
