This is a pivotal role on the accounting and financial reporting team, responsible for a significant part of our core business.

The finance team is a dynamic team working on a range of projects at any one time. The team reflects the entrepreneurial spirit of the business and works to partner with all departments.

We need someone who can be flexible, a self starter, and able to get on with people at all levels and across a range of departments in the business. Good verbal and written communication skills across all levels and teams important, including the ability distill complex accounting information to make it understandable for non-accountants.

Life at Deliveroo

We are a small 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.
