Press Release: Syft Partners With Deliveroo

Deliveroo will utilise Syft’s high quality flexible workers to fulfil part of its Restaurant Perks offer


LONDON, UK – April 2018 – The UK’s market leading flexible staffing platform, Syft, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Deliveroo, to provide staff for the takeaway delivery service’s Restaurant Perks programme. It represents further progress for venture capital-backed firm Syft, which completed its first corporate acquisition earlier this month.

Deliveroo’s Restaurant Perks is a new website where restaurants can access a range of time, money and hassle-saving deals. The scheme has a broad scope, including savings on energy bills, WiFi, business rates and training courses, and is accessible to businesses of varying sizes. Venues that are particularly set to benefit from the programme are SMEs, which have in recent years been hit by challenging operating conditions, such as rising food and rent costs.

Staffing can be a significant challenge for venues of any size, with problems including inefficient recruitment processes, high costs, and shift no-shows. Through Restaurant Perks, venues will be able to access Syft’s thousands of high-quality flexible workers based across London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool and Leeds. For venues that exclusively use Syft through Deliveroo’s scheme, the deal is:

  • Six weeks with no commision
  • No upfront cost
  • 33.3% off later commissions

Venues that non-exclusively utilise Syft receive:

  • Three weeks with no commission
  • No upfront cost
  • 16.7% off later commissions

Launched in November 2015 by Jack Beaman and Novo Abakare, Syft is cost and time efficient for employers, offering them direct access to high quality, fully trained staff via the app. This allows employers to view a range of jobseekers with varying experience at an average cost of 55% less than a traditional temp agency. Syft’s fully verified flexible workers are offered higher wages plus benefits, and are given feedback at the end of every shift, resulting in a truly motivated workforce.
