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-
Deliveroo has announced that its first drop-offs will take place in Newport and Ryde in July, and those interested in working for the company can find more details on how to apply on its website.
