Deliveroo launches in South Shields with delivery drivers and riders wanted
Kicking off in February, Deliveroo will see customers order food straight to their homes via the app, from a range of independent eateries, takeaways, chain restaurants and supermarkets.
Customers have the option to schedule orders up to one day in advance or receive food as soon as possible.
Ahead of its launch, the company is hiring new riders to deliver food from restaurants and grocery retailers across the town to customers.
Deliveroo is looking for people who value on-demand, flexible work and want the freedom to choose when, where and how to work.
Harrison Foster, Deliveroo’s UK regional director, said: “We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in South Shields 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 who's interested should head over to our website to sign up.”
To keep riders safe while out on the road, Deliveroo offers all riders free medical insurance to ensure all riders are protected.
The company also offers perks such as free training courses for riders and their families.
Deliveroo’s arrival in South Shields will also be a 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 to become a Deliveroo partner at restaurants.deliveroo.com/en-gb
