TAKEAWAY FIRM DELIVEROO REVEALS ISLE OF WIGHT LAUNCH DATE

Online ordering and delivery firm, Deliveroo, has officially confirmed its expected Isle of Wight launch date.

As first reported by Island Echo, the delivery firm began its recruitment drive for deliverers on the Island back in April.

The firm has since renewed its efforts to get cyclists, scooter riders, motorcyclists, and drivers signed up to deliver meals on behalf of a score of local restaurants and eateries. The company, which has seen rider demand soar over the last year now works with 50,000 riders across the UK.

With the company understanding the need for its riders and staff to be safe on the road, it even offers free medical insurance to ensure that those delivering remain protected.

Harrison Foster, Deliveroo’s UK Regional Director, said:

“We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in Isle of Wight 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.”

The launch is set to be a popular one with many Islanders embracing online ordering whilst indulging in their favourite takeaway, and many restaurants beginning to move to online ordering during the coronavirus pandemic. Restaurants and takeaways, alongside grocery retailers, can apply to be featured on the app at restaurants.deliveroo.com/en-gb.

Great! More drivers on a time scale, driving recklessly and fast to get food delivered. Just look how pizza delivery drivers act on the road!

I hope that they are going to deliver to more of the island than the others will do. It is impossible to get ANYTHING delivered to Winford by ANY COMPANY !!!
