Inploi, the on-demand jobs platform, has closed £250,000 in seed funding from a number of sources including the CEO of a large multinational hotel chain, a LinkedIn client executive, and a Geneva-based family office.

The funding brings Inploi’s total investment to £450,000 and will be used to enhance its platform and grow its network of candidates and employers.

The company has also announced the appointment of two new advisors. Ross Sleight, former chief strategy and marketing & operations director of Virgin Games; and Jonny Crowe, current CEO of Dutch online fashion retailer Wehcamp
