We’re delighted to announce that Adzuna has acquired the number one UK tech startup job board Work In Startups! This is another important step towards Adzuna’s goal of helping to match people to better, more fulfilling jobs and to keep Britain working.
Launched in 2011 by Diana Ilinca and Alex Borbely, Work In Startups has become the leading job-board in the UK for startups looking to hire tech and creative talent. We’re pleased to announce that as a result of this acquisition Adzuna will take over operation of the Work In Startups website, crucially giving both its startups and its jobseekers increased hiring exposure and connection opportunities. The site will keep its independent brand and its community of tens of thousands of monthly startup jobseekers whilst also remaining free to post jobs.
Doug Monro, co-founder of Adzuna said: “We are thrilled at the opportunity to take Work In Startups to the next level, having watched it become an integral piece of the UK startup hiring scene over the past few years. It has been a fantastic resource for our key early hires as well as 100s of other early stage tech companies in the U.K, and based on our experience from Adzuna and Gumtree before, we’re really excited about what we can achieve here. We see the platform as a rough diamond, with a strong community already and bags of additional potential to grow and improve the experience for both advertisers and jobseekers.”
“Bringing the Work In Startups brand under our wing is another step in our mission to help people find better, more fulfilling jobs – particularly within the tech community which is close to our own hearts. We look forward to working with the community to continue to make hiring top talent for UK startups faster, easier and better.”
