Just Eat has announced that it is recruiting 700 additional couriers as the country enters a period of Level 5 restrictions.
The new couriers will support the anticipated growth in online ordering in the period ahead, enabling restaurant owners across the country to deliver their food to more people, in more areas, the company said.
Commenting on the announcement Amanda Roche-Kelly, Just Eat Ireland managing director said: “As the market leader in the food delivery sector, we are committed to supporting our partners in the sector through the crisis which is why we are launching this additional package of support measures.”
Commenting specifically on the plan to recruit 700 couriers Ms Roche-Kelly said: “We are delighted to be in a position to build our courier network at a time when many people have had to temporarily or permanently leave their jobs.”
Effective immediately, Just Eat has also said that it is committed to an extension of the 14-day Courier Relief Payment for those who may become ill or need to self-isolate as a result of the virus.
