The company has seen rider demand soar this year and now works with 50,000 riders across the UK. This rapid growth in on-demand work underlines the vital role that Deliveroo is playing to provide work opportunities for riders in towns and cities across the UK.

The company has also revealed that rider satisfaction has never been as high, with 89 per cent of riders saying they are satisfied, in part due to the vital role that riders are carrying out in their communities as ‘key workers’ and the strong public support they have received during the pandemic.

To keep riders safe while out on the road, the company offers all riders free insurance to ensure all riders are protected. The company also offers other perks, such as free training courses for riders and their families.
