Restaurant Marketing & Sales Internship (12 weeks)

Why Deliveroo?

When you first think about Deliveroo, you probably think of getting great food to your house in less than half an hour.  Awesome right? But behind the scenes is the real story. This story is one of high growth, huge challenges and an enormous opportunity ahead of us. It began with our founder Will, arriving in London over 5 years ago and finding it almost impossible to order great food, despite the wealth of incredible restaurants in the city.  Fast forward 5 years and we operate in 13 countries with over 50,000 riders who deliver orders from 50,000 restaurants in over 200 cities worldwide.

We want to be the definitive food company - the app you go to any time you have a hunger pang. We are transforming the way people think about food. We are providing people with limitless access to different cuisines and restaurants, turning cooking from a chore to a choice, and giving people the freedom to eat what they want, when they want, where they want it.

We work with riders, restaurants and consumers. We operate one of the most complex three sided marketplaces in the world and we do this in real time. Millions of customers and thousands of restaurants and riders rely on us to match them within milliseconds. The algorithms behind that marketplace are the secret sauce that allow us to deliver our orders in under 30 minutes.

And we’re just getting started

The scale of the opportunity ahead of us is immense. The global food market is valued at £7.7 trillion but only 1% of it is currently online. Contrast that with the digital disruption of countless other industries - from banking and travel to retail and communications - it’s clear that our journey in the food sector has only just begun.

We are already a multi-billion dollar company that is more than doubling in size every year.  Deliveroo came top in the FT’s’ list of Europe’s fastest growing 1000 companies in 2018, and we were the first company ever to win Deloitte’s ‘UK Top 50’ two years in a row. Yet most of the extraordinary value this company will generate lies ahead of us.

The Internship

We run this Internship every few months with anticipated starts in January, June and Sept/ October

Over a 12 week period, you will: grow our presence across the UK, you will have the opportunity to support the marketing initiatives in the the UK and become our all-round community ambassador across London. You'll be our local marketing representatives and work closely to understand some of the blockers our restaurants and riders face. One of your main objectives will be to get as much Deliveroo branded material into our restaurants as possible and write weekly reports on your activity and what you've encountered during your travels for that week. As a result of the type of work, you'll be loaded up with signage, and plenty of Deliveroo branded material so we'd strongly advise that you're able to drive and have access to a car.  

Day to day this means you will be:

  1. Deliveroo Ambassadors: You will meet with Restaurant Owners and quickly forge relationships to ensure that restaurants are advertising that customers can order their favourite food on Deliveroo.
  2. Autonomous Operators: We will kick off with a training programme to set you up for success… There will be no making the coffees on this internship! You’ll spend Monday - Thursday out of the office in the field talking to our restaurants, installing restaurant marketing materials and getting a first hand understanding of Deliveroo’s business.
  3. Hyper Local Marketing Executors: This internship is results oriented.  You will be allocated a region of the UK to own.
  4. Problem Solving: You will be using your initiative and energy to solve any problems that our customers or restaurant partners may face in your area.
  5. Restaurant Gurus: You will become intimately familiar with our platform, acting as advisors to our restaurants and customers and collating learnings and insights to feed into monthly reports.


  • You will need to be available from mid June to August
  • At Deliveroo we value: Creativity, Innovation, Problem-Solving, People-people and Results-oriented Do-ers. It’s not just about what you do, but how you do it.
  • It doesn’t matter what you studied at University, we hire interns who collaborate with people and can understand what makes them tick.
  • This is a hands-on internship and you should be too!
  • Driving licence is essential to this role

Please note that this role will be a regional role involving lots of travel so you'll need the ability to travel daily, in addition this is a 12 week programme and we will therefore not consider applications looking for longer internships. You'll also need to be available from June 2019 which is when this internship will begin. 

Life at Deliveroo

We are a growing team, with very large impact, seeking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. We move fast, we’re always looking for new ideas and we’re very transparent about the decisions we make and why we make them.

There are so many questions we need to answer and plenty more we haven’t even encountered. How do data and technology help restaurants to grow as consumer habits change? How can we predict what someone wants to order for dinner long before the idea has even crossed their mind? At Deliveroo these are just some of the tough problems we are solving - and there is no challenge that cannot be yours. No solution is owned by a particular team, which means the scope for growth and personal impact is enormous.

Benefits and Diversity

At Deliveroo we know that people are the heart of the business and we prioritise their welfare. We offer a wide range of competitive benefits in areas including health, family, finance, community, convenience, growth, time away and relocation.

In 2018 we announced our decision to give every employee equity in the company. We did this because we wanted all of our employees, regardless of location, level or role to be owners and because we believe that this is the right thing to do. We believe this helps build a culture where everyone is committed and able to share in the company’s success.

We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and how beautifully diverse it can be. That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are - your gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing start-up’s around.
