Just Eat, a British company with a food delivery platform, has announced that it will be recruiting 4,000 people in Italy during 2022. It is important to underline that a part of these will replace outgoing workers, the exact number has not been specified by the company. 

What is proposed is a permanent contract, in which the hired worker starts as a courier with the possibility of later becoming a captain, providing a first level of support. Subsequently one can become a coordinator, responsible for a group of couriers with significant growth in responsibility. All hired couriers will receive training with 12 hours of basic and specific training on the job and on health and safety, with a periodic medical examination for fitness for work.

In the event that it is not possible to hire all employees with a permanent contract, the company uses a staff leasing contract for the initial stages of the relationship. 

Just Eat is also investing in a hub in Rome, which will contain a fleet of 120 electric scooters and 200 riders. The next hub is planned in Milan.
