Deliveroo has been delivering meals in the city for over a year, working with over 40 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 flexible roles 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 Peterborough will receive up to £250.

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