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 6 years ago and finding it almost impossible to order great food, despite the wealth of incredible restaurants in the city. Fast forward 6 years and we operate in 14 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.
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.
What you’ll be working on
- A lot of hiring! The APAC recruitment team supports business hiring which for Deliveroo is everything non-tech across 6 markets: Australia, UAE, Kuwait, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
- You’ll partner with stakeholders up to the VP level on end to end recruitment and drive it rather than support it. We’ll be a strategic hiring partner to the business.
- Coaching hiring managers and XFN partners on long-term hiring plans and serving as a brand ambassador for Deliveroo.
- You’ll be responsible for mentoring and elevating fellow members of the recruitment team.
- This is not a role for an executor, this is a role for someone who is passionate about building a recruiting muscle within a growing organization. From interview training and candidate on-boarding to partnering with our teammates in EU and the UK, you’ll be taking a holistic approach to recruitment not simply filling headcount.
Job requirements and things we’d like to see in you
- 4+ years of in-house or agency recruitment experience
- You’re experienced in full life-cycle recruiting, such as researching, sourcing, talent mapping, designing processes, a working understanding of local employment laws, organizational structures, and salary trends.
- Proactivity. You identify gaps and develop innovative hiring solutions that can help our organization and our management team scale a highly engaged and inclusive team.
- You leverage data to drive strategic hiring decisions and influence key stakeholders.
- People skills. You’re able to develop business cases and meet stakeholder requirements, while building and managing internal and external partnerships.
- You thrive in an environment of unrelenting pace. The ability to multitask, juggle a bunch of stuff at once but also, somehow manage to be super organised at the same time is key here.
- Fluency in an APAC language is a plus.
- Bachelor’s degree required.
- Most importantly, you love food and are excited about influencing the way people eat globally!
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 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.
