The communications and policy team is a vital part of the business. It is this team’s job to effectively communicate the positive impact Deliveroo is having for customers, restaurants and riders, by offering the flexible on demand work people want and bringing world-leading food to people when and where they want it.
Working in corporate communications in Deliveroo means being involved early in decisions regarding policy and operational matters. Communications is not about producing a press release once decisions are made but rather about helping the business gets its proposition right, for consumers, riders and all stakeholders, and about coming up with proactive positive ideas to tell Deliveroo’s story.
The role will help to shape the global communications strategy and implement that strategy in France. The role leads on all corporate-related media communications in France, reporting on a daily basis to the global VP of Communications in HQ and working closely with the General Manager for France, as well as the Head of Public Affairs and the Operations and Commercial Directors in France.
The role involves being the lead on all reactive media for France, as well as planning and delivering a set number of proactive stories in the media each month, managing an external communications agency, and advising the company on the communication implications of policy and operational decisions.
The role will be central to the positioning of Deliveroo in France’s media market. The role will be part of determining how Deliveroo leads the technology sector in engaging with issues such as the future of work, the role of technology in the food sector, sustainable food delivery and the future of the high street. These are all important topics and Deliveroo intends to play a positive and leading role in the debate.
The essential ingredients:
- A strong understanding of the political context in France and good pre-existing relationships with journalists.
- Experience in crisis communications.
- An enthusiasm for up to the minute, difficult media issues. This includes a desire to pick up the phone to journalists and to form strong relationships with them. Business editors, political journalists and tech correspondents are all highly relevant.
- A proactive attitude and a desire to learn about and help make decisions right across the business, from commercial and operational decisions to HR policies.
- A good understanding of the complexity of policy and societal issues which Deliveroo may be involved in, and a desire to ‘shape the debate’ with Deliveroo’s work.
- Fluent English.
