Deliveroo says it is hoping residents who have a car, bike, scooter or motorbike will sign up to take orders to customers' doorsteps which can be delivered in as little as 15 minutes.

Dan Warne, managing director of Deliveroo in UK and Ireland, said: "We’ve seen a huge demand for Deliveroo in Margate and we’re excited to be launching this month; we’re really excited to be creating new work opportunities for local people.

"The team is looking for people with passion, drive and great customer service, who are seeking the added benefit of flexible hours amongst other perks. We would encourage anyone looking for a fast paced and active job to apply through our website."

The company says it offers a free insurance package to all new riders and drivers to cover against incidents on the road.

A spokesman added the new jobs are ideal for people with cars or scooters or who enjoy cycling as a hobby are looking to keep fit while earning some extra cash.
