Hiring-Hub allows employers to ‘crowdsource’ vacancies from recruitment agencies signed up to the site and set a fee they are comfortable with – allowing employers to avoid the difficulty of selecting the right recruitment agency and introducing a competitive element amongst recruiters. The promising company made our list in 2012 and has continued to grow in popularity amongst both agencies and employers; 600 agencies are now signed up and household names such as Fujifilm, Dyson and Gocompare.com are amongst the 1,000 employers using the site. The business recently secured private equity funding in excess of £500,000 in order to fund aggressive growth and since securing the investment the business has grown 260% in the first three months of 2013, hired seven additional staff, and is well on target to hit its £1.4m revenue target this year.
