Deliveroo gears up for Dublin

Deliveroo, the high-profile food delivery firm that's backed by Irish entrepreneur Dylan Collins, is accelerating its hiring in advance of a Dublin launch for the service.

The firm eventually expects to have more than 50 delivery drivers in the capital and has been actively looking to fill those roles as well as management positions.

Deliveroo inks deals with restaurants that don't traditionally offer takeaway to allow customers to order food online and have it delivered.
