UK Startup Jobs acquired by software firm
Recruitment software company Alvius has acquired UK Startup Jobs for an undisclosed sum.
Founded in 2011, UK Startup Jobs is a job board with a community of 10,000 job seekers which is headquartered in Edinburgh.
The job board specialises in advertising roles at high growth UK businesses to candidates with a range of experience levels.
The acquisition is London-based Alvius’ first, and is hoped to strengthen its position in the start-up recruitment sector with a larger pool of talent and clients.
“We already have considerable crossover in terms of both clients and candidates, so believe that there are significant gains to be made in the platforms supporting one another,” said Tom Davenport, Managing Director of Alvius.
“Many employers posting on one platform will soon benefit from the reach of both platforms. This acquisition consolidates our position as a key supplier of talent to the UK startup ecosystem.”
Sophie Hudson, Director of Marketing and User Experience at Alvius, added: “We have been really impressed with how UK Startup Jobs has positioned itself within the startup recruitment space.
“They have managed to build a strong community and reputation amongst both their employer and candidates, with a similar ethos to our own.
“We look forward to welcoming UK Startup Jobs’ 10,000 users to our existing community of 100,000 users.”
