Do you consider yourself a true foodie fanatic? Know your Lemon & Herb from your Extra Hot? If the answer’s absolutely, then Deliveroo might have the perfect new role for you.
The food delivery giant has this week announced it is on the hunt for food ‘Rooviewers’, who will be given a year’s worth of free credit - which could be worth over £3,000 - to taste test menus in return for foodie feedback.
The search for ‘Rooviewers’ has been launched in celebration of the food-delivery platform’s new national brand campaign “Deliveroo Presents: The Year of Great Food”.
The new roles are designed to help the on-demand delivery company trial thousands of options available to order, and help identify hidden gems.
As Deliveroo’s new brand campaign seeks to celebrate local restaurants, the best hidden gems identified by the new Rooviewers will have a chance of featuring in future Deliveroo marketing campaigns, alongside others chosen by the company.
For anyone unsure as to whether they have what it takes to take on the role of a ‘Rooviewer’ and celebrate a year of great food, Deliveroo has outlined a set of requirements. To make sure successful candidates ‘get’ great food, applicants should:
- Have experience in eating all food types
- Be willing to try different cuisines
- A palette for savoury and sweet, spicy and saucy
- Familiarity with high-street chains as well as a desire to sample local independants
- A sense of culinary adventure
- Ability to translate a great foodie experience into written or visual recommendations/critique
If successful, over the course of the next 12 months, Rooviewers will be given credit to use in return for providing the food delivery service with written reviews of restaurants and food experiences as well as images and video content of them taste testing dishes, to potentially be used on the Deliveroo blog and social channels over the course of a year.
Aisha Jefferson at Deliveroo said: “Great food is there to be discovered and we want to help more people find it. We know our customers love food, everything from local favourites to high-street staples, so this is an opportunity for any Deliveroo devotees with a good palette and a taste for great food to trial new, mind-blowing meals. In the past year, we’ve welcomed over 20,000 new restaurants on the platform, now we need three curious connoisseurs who ‘get’ food as much as we do to hero the hidden gems and help us in our year of food discovery.”
Whether they fancy a fish supper from a cheap-eats chippie one day, choose to dine-out on a Michelin starred meal the next, there are no limits on what successful candidates can sample during their time as a ‘Rooviewer’. As well as investigating their own local area, the select three will be sent dishes from restaurants all over the UK to taste and review across the 12 months.
Applications to be a ‘Rooviewer’ are open until 4th February, to anyone over the age of 18 in the UK. To apply or for more information visit the website.
