Just Eat to create 1,500 new jobs in Liverpool

The new jobs will be created as part of the company’s expansion into its new UK agency worker model for couriers

Just Eat has revealed it plans to create more than 1,500 jobs in Liverpool by the end of the year.

The new jobs will be created as part of the company’s expansion into its new UK agency worker model for couriers.

Liverpool is the third city in the UK which the group is offering the new model to, following its launch in London in November 2020 and Birmingham in February 2021. The move has already created almost 2,000 jobs and will continue to be rolled out to further cities.

All couriers contracted through this model are entitled to hourly pay, minimum/living wage, pension contributions and certain statutory benefits including holiday pay and sick pay.

All agency workers can also benefit from training as well as relevant insurance to help protect couriers.

Alongside this, couriers are also provided with e-bikes/e-mopeds for launch, helping to reduce takeaway delivery contribution to UK emission levels.

Andrew Kenny, managing director, Just Eat UK, said: “We’ve reached this milestone significantly ahead of schedule and following a positive response in London and Birmingham, we’re excited to roll this out to Liverpool, creating 1,500 more roles this year.

“We believe giving couriers access to the benefits and security associated with a model like this is the right thing to do and we’re hugely ambitious to grow this further out across the UK.”
