Getir to create thousands of new jobs as it ramps up UK expansion

Getir motorbikes and drivers lined up and ready to go

Turkish ultra-fast delivery firm Getir has unveiled plans to create 6,000 new jobs across the country as it ramps up its UK expansion plans.

Since launching in the UK in London last year, Getir has already grown its workforce to more than 4,000, and has promised its new hires will be bought on as full-time employees and paid the real living wage. 

The rapid delivery giant has pledged to invest £100m into its UK business this year, in a bid to head off rivals such as Gorillas and Gopuff, which are also looking to ramp up operations in the wake of the pandemic.
