Our mission is to be the definitive food company. We are transforming the way the world eats by making food more convenient and accessible. We give people the opportunity to eat what they want, when and where they want it.

We are a technology-driven company at the forefront of the most rapidly expanding industry in the world. We are still a small team, making a very large impact, seeking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. We move fast, value autonomy and ownership, and we are always looking for new ideas.

As a Senior Policy Advisor you will work within Deliveroo’s integrated global comms & policy team. The role will play a key part in determining how Deliveroo leads the tech sector on diverse and varied issues, including: the future of work; how to reduce our impact on the planet; and the role of the industry in supporting healthy eating.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Leading the development of specific policy positions, which will require you to set direction, forge consensus across the business and then make recommendations to the Exec team.
  • Representing Deliveroo at external meetings with politicians, policy makers and opinion-formers.
  • Helping the business identify and address risks that could damage the business if they crystalise.

Requirements

  • Experience and knowledge of Westminster politics, the UK civil service and local government
  • A self-starter who is able to size up a problem on its merits, and then execute a plan to tackle it with limited supervision
  • Confidence in representing the company publicly
  • Ability to interact confidently with all aspects of our business including legal and operations.
  • Experience of policy in the civil service, as a discipline in-house or in an agency environment would be an advantage.
  • Experience of public policy connected to the future of work, ecommerce, sustainability or public health would be an added bonus.

Workplace & 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.

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 startups in an incredibly exciting space.
