I worked a job at Deliveroo for a week & made £_____ – by Ben Morris

Deliveroo is a food delivery service that allows people to order food from places that don’t normally offer a delivery service, e.g. KFC, Nandos, FiveGuys etc. Delivery is done by people on scooters, bikes and even skateboards, they delivery person gets roughly £3.50-£4.50 per delivery depending on distance etc.

We’ve spoiled the video by giving you the answer in the photo above but that’s primarily because it wasn’t really a fair test or a full time 8 hour a day style job so the £75.00 he made was across 16 deliveries, we’ve seen some people do 16 deliveries in one day before.


  • Work when you want
  • Good exercise (if you use a bike)
  • Great way of finding new places in your city/town
  • Earn up to £13 per hour (or roughly £3.50 per order)


  • Lots of waiting for orders to be ready
  • Low income for day shifts, most money appears to be at night.
  • You need a bike or other form of transport
  • No guarantee of earning money
  • A decent amount of effort required
  • Can be dangerous riding bikes around a city
  • Possibly tax implications (just like any other sole trader)
  • Faffing around finding restaurants / finding people
  • A bit daunting at first
  • Robots will replace this job in 2-5 years time.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
