What's it all about?

Sometimes you really fancy a takeaway, but your local doesn’t deliver. That’s where Deliveroo comes in - order via the firm and its riders will pick up the food from the restaurant and deliver it to your door.

If you become a rider, you’ll have the option of signing up to make those deliveries.

You download their app, and it will let you know when an order in your area has been made, then it’s up to you to swipe and accept the gig.

You’ll then need to update the app when you arrive at the restaurant and collect the food, to keep the customer updated on how their order is progressing.

And you don't have to do it by bike if you don't want to - with petrol-powered deliveries also allowed.

According to Deliveroo, the average wage is £10 an hour, though for those riders on the fee per delivery model this rises to around £12 an hour, with fees currently around £4.50 for each drop. You also get to keep 100% of your tips. Oh and did we forget to mention that you will get exceptionally fit if you opt for pedal power. However, you can also use a Motorbike, Scooter or Car. 

Deliveroo is expanding in the UK with new locations being added all of the time. So check to see if you can start riding for Deliveroo in your area here
