Just Eat to create 'thousands' of jobs in UK after surge in revenue

The firm's chief executive says the firm will invest "tens of millions of pounds" as it reported a 44% surge in revenue.


Thousands of jobs are to be created in the UK by food delivery giant Just Eat, its boss had told Sky News.

Speaking to the Ian King Live programme, chief executive Jitse Groen said the firm was going to invest "tens of millions of pounds" in Britain as the company reported a 44% surge in revenue to €1bn in the first half of the year, driven by the coronavirus lockdown.


Mr Groen said with people stuck at home due to the COVID-19 restrictions, it was "quite logical" there would be an increase in business.


Just Eat saw orders soar by 32% to around 257 million in the first six months of the year as takeaway outlets experienced a spike in demand with restaurants closed.
