Andrew Hunter: Adzuna
The ‘Google of classifieds’, bringing job, car and property adverts together in one place
Andrew Hunter, 31
Last year, Andrew Hunter’s Adzuna was earmarked as a One To Watch for 2013 due to the potential of its fledgling classifieds site and the tech company has certainly delivered on its early promise. Posting six-figure revenues for last year and growing by 50% a quarter, Adzuna has also raised £2m of funding from Index Ventures, Passion Capital and the Accelerator Group; impressive sums for a business less than two years old. The company aims to provide the web’s first ‘one-stop shop’ for job, property and car classifieds, allowing users to see results from multiple sources using one search – as well as enlisting the help of their peer networks with built-in Facebook and Linkedin integration. The site now has more than two million unique visitors a month, searching more than 100 million classified ads from across the web.
This growth has seen it recognised in industry awards, making the finals of the Techcrunch Europas and gaining a place in the Startups 100 . Adzuna recently saw successful launches in six countries worldwide including Germany, Australia and Brazil, and more international launches are on the horizon.
