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 our Head of Public Affairs, UK & Ireland you will work within Deliveroo’s integrated global comms & policy team. Your job will be to represent Deliveroo with external audiences who shape our legislative environment, making sure our company positions are heard and understood. At the same time, you will bring the views of the outside world into Deliveroo, making sure we are proactively shaping our operating environment rather than simply reacting to it.

What You’ll Be Doing

  • Representing Deliveroo in advocacy with external audiences in UK & Ireland: including ministers, parliamentarians, advisers, civil servants and local authorities
  • Advising the business on legislative and regulatory developments in UK & Ireland.
  • Helping the business shape contributions to public policy debates where relevant.
  • Building collaborative relationships where relevant with peers and industry bodies

Requirements

  • Extensive experience and knowledge of Westminster politics, the UK civil service and local government with good networks in all.
  • A self-starter who is able to devise and execute a proactive public affairs agenda under your own steam
  • Confidence in representing the company publicly as our representative with the outside world.
  • Ability to interact confidently with all aspects of our business including legal and operations.
  • Experience of public affairs 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, digital taxation, 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.
