Recruitment tech firm Debut has raised a further £5.1m in funding from James Caan CBE, a former Dragon and recruitment entrepreneur.
Debut, founded two years ago, has raised £7.3m to date from prominent funds including LocalGlobe.
Charlie Taylor, Founder and CEO of Debut commented on the fundraise.
“Given the importance of an effective, productive and motivated workforce to the country’s economy, I continue to be amazed by how little innovation the recruitment market has seen in recent years, especially considering the prevalence of smartphone technology over the last decade.
“Already, in just 2.5 years, Debut has collated and analysed more data than any traditional job board would be able to capture in 10 years. The fact that we have started at the entry level, and have such a high level of user adoption and data, we are in a stronger position than any other platform to take on the global recruitment market and stay with candidates at each stage of their entire careers.
“Debut prides itself on delivering an intimate user-experience, which results in more data collation, and a chance for our technology to learn more based on candidates’ and employers’ behaviours and actions, which further enhances that experience – it’s a big loop.
