Deliveroo is coming to Northampton - and it is looking for bike riders to join its team.

London-based Deliveroo is also appealing for bicycle, scooter and motorbike riders to become a food courier for the expanding firm too.

A company spokesman said “more than 15” restaurants across the town have signed up to the delivery system, which aims to bring food from the kitchen hotplate to homes within 30 minutes.

General manager at Deliveroo, Jeremy Rawlinson, said: “We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in Northampton and we’re excited to be launching next month; we’re feeling very positive about the creation of new jobs for local people.
