How we scaled Just Eat Takeaway's recruitment team quickly and efficiently

Thanks to the partnership with WeAreKeen, Just Eat met ambitious hiring plans for the internal recruitment team in order to serve the entire organization through the phase of rapid growth.

We connected with Keen to hire recruiters and scale our team quickly, and they delivered. In the very early phase, they were on the speed dial of my phone.

The key word when thinking of WeAreKeen is partnership. We needed a partner who knew the market even better than us so they could be faster in scaling our recruitment team. For us, transparency was also very important, and finally, working with WeAreKeen is also fun.



Thanks to the merger of Just Eat and in early 2020, Just Eat was going through a rapid growth phase, establishing itself as the leading food delivery service globally. The internal recruitment team was stretched thin and needed an immediate reinforcement of a dedicated recruitment partner in order to scale sufficiently to serve the entire organization.

With the hyper-focus on scaling the team efficiently and quickly, WeAreKeen embedded a dedicated team of talent partners who helped navigate a hot hiring market for recruiters and delivered on their ambitious hiring plans.
