Just Eat is a leading global marketplace, providing millions of customers with an easy and secure way to order and pay for their favourite food from tens of thousands of Restaurant Partners.
We are committed to bringing emerging talent into our business, as well as retaining and developing our existing colleagues, with the potential to be tomorrow’s leaders of Just Eat.
There’s more to marketing than running an advertising campaign and hoping it performs well.
That’s why we like to say we’re as good a listener as we are a talker. By that we mean we communicate with our customers and restaurant partners in the same way. We stick to our brand values, and ensure each remain as excited about building the world’s greatest food community and discovering new flavours as we are.
Joining our Marketing department, one minute you could be working on a TV campaign and the next a Halloween discount offer push. It’s fast-paced, fun, creative and varied.
