Caroo, a Manchester-based recruitment platform, is set to accelerate its national expansion following a multi-million-pound investment.
The platform, which matches relevant candidates with employers based on skills and experience, has recently completed beta testing with big brands, including Co-Op, adidas and Missguided. The start-up company has received £2million funding from Optimise Capital, a Wilmslow-based private equity business.
Caroo Managing Director Gareth Peterson reveals aggressive growth plans includes getting 8,000 clients in the next 15 months and signing up 20,000 new candidate profiles per month. The firm also considers expanding to the US and Europe by 2021.
Peterson said: "We know the current recruitment market is outdated and inefficient and for too long employers have been getting a raw deal when it comes to hiring talent. Our aim is to push the sector forward and make the process much smoother for both companies and candidates."
"For employers, our smart tech matches people and jobs on skills, not job titles, saving them an incredible amount of time when looking for candidates, while for those out for work, it's important than ever that they know the opportunities which are open to them."
"Our technology allows them to tap into roles which they may not have known they were experienced for, giving them greater accessibility in a difficult jobs market."
