As a student, Deliveroo works perfectly as it is easy to choose exactly which hours I want to work. The pay is good when you ride during the busier hours (i.e.: not mid afternoon) because you are only paid in terms of completed deliveries (currently 3.75£ per delivery).
You meet a handful of friendly bikers, so even though you don't really have a boss watching over your shoulder you still have people who can help you out with any questions especially when you're starting out.
The hardest parts of the job are delivering food to locations on the opposite sides of town, and waiting around for 30min+ for a delivery to pop up.
For an extra £50 when you start out, use this code: AD137725 :)
long shifts are tiring
