London, 2nd September 2014 – London based Contingent Recruiting Platform Elevate Direct, has raised a further $1.3 million from new and existing investors to further drive product development, and accelerate global expansion to Asia, and the US. Elevate is currently Europe’s only platform provider of automated contingent sourcing software that has a sole focus on on-site contract workers.
“Approximately 15% of the UK workforce is self-employed. The number of workers making up an organisation’s workforce is predicted to climb as high as 50% by 2018”, says Dan Collier, CEO of Elevate Direct. “At some point in the future, a lot of companies will find themselves in a situation where the majority of people they want to recruit, just won’t accept a perm job. We’re already seeing it with certain niche skill sets. The impact this will have on how companies attract, onboard and manage teams will be significant”.
Elevate Direct provides employers with an end to end recruitment solution for hiring contractors, enabling them to reduce their reliance on recruitment agencies. The platform makes use of extensive data science and machine learning algorithms to provide businesses from start-up to Enterprise size with a significant advantage when it comes to identifying contingent talent. It currently provides access to hundreds of thousands of UK based contract workers.
Elevate Direct has now raised over $2million since launching in 2012.
