Deliveroo seeks more drivers

New figures released today by Deliveroo reveal the company’s rapid growth across Milton Keynes in the past 12 months.

As Deliveroo continues to grow its service in the area, the company is looking for more riders to deliver meals across the city. Deliveroo recently launched Marketplace+, which has seen an influx of traditional takeaways joining the British food-delivery company.

In the past year orders in Milton Keynes have rocketed. Deliveroo data has shown that locals are embracing food delivery, with lunch orders increasing by 105% in the last 12 months.

Deliveroo has been delivering meals in the city for two years now, working with more than 60 restaurants. With the launch of Marketplace+ Deliveroo is expecting this number to double by the end of 2019.

This increase in order growth means that Deliveroo is able to offer more well-paid, flexible work that allows people to combine work with other responsibilities, for example studying.

On average across the UK, riders earn over £10 per hour. Deliveroo is now looking for more riders, and current riders who successfully refer someone new to Deliveroo in Milton Keynes will receive up to £250.

Dan Warne, UK and Ireland managing director said “We’re proud to be offering more locals in Milton Keynes well-paid flexible work and have been astounded by the huge growth we’ve seen in the city”

Earlier this year Deliveroo to provided its 35,000 riders around the world with free insurance to protect them and their earnings if they’re involved in an accident.
