Gousto, the British 'recipe box' retailer company has announced to have started the recruitment for 100 jobs. The company plans to further expand its workforce of 400 roles in the next four months at its headquarters in London and logistics centres in Lincolnshire, with an increase of over 700 jobs by 2022. The new positions will encompass jobs in the field of data science, within the engineering and product teams, as well as production roles.

Gousto has benefitted from the COVID-19 pandemic, as large groups of people have turned to online food shopping. The company is also working with the UK government and two charitable organisations to deliver meals to the homes of vulnerable people who are self-isolating and to the homeless.

SCA Investments Limited, which trades as Gousto, was founded in London in 2012. It offers a variety of recipe boxes for home delivery – each box includes cooking instructions and all the necessary ingredients for a selected meal.
