JOB TODAY hiring app gets funding to help reach UK jobseekers

JOB TODAY has secured $16m (£12.2m) in additional funding, which the company says will help it expand operations across the UK.

In a statement, released today, the mobile hiring app revealed it will use most of the additional funds to expand its presence in the UK, where it has experienced significant growth in both job postings and candidate applications. 

The group further reveals its overall volume of applications has increased by 46% year-on-year in the UK, with the number of applications per candidate growing by 32% in the same period.

Launched in 2015 by co-founders Eugene Mizin (CEO) and Polina Frolova-Montano (chief operating officer) (pictured above, l-r), JOB TODAY helps fill empty vacancies, especially in the retail and hospitality sectors, fast – in some cases in just 24 hours. According to the company, job boards and traditional methods are no longer fast enough to fill the Brexit job shortage.
