A recruitment video platform has raised £3 million to scale in the UK and internationally.

London-based Hinterview serves tens of thousands of recruiters in more than 30 countries and says it has experienced soaring demand for its technology as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Series A round, led by Calculus Capital, brings the total raised to date to over £6m.

Founded in 2015 by recruitment industry experts Andy Simpson & Richard McLaren, Hinterview has been adopted by some of the world’s leading recruitment brands including Korn Ferry, Harvey Nash, Impellam Group and Michael Page.

“In the last 18 months the world has seen the positive impact of video in recruitment as it helps to improve diversity, the candidate experience and time to hire,” said Simpson. 

“As a result, Hinterview’s video technology has firmly secured its place in the future of work and we’re proud to be able to support thousands of recruiters to find and place the best talent. 

“This investment will allow us to drive forward our massive growth & innovation plans, whilst continuing to deliver the same level of outstanding customer service that we’ve become known for.”
