This week’s launches include: Castle Employment Group, elbo, Supertemps

• Yorkshire-based Castle Employment Group has expanded its Newchase Court office in Scarborough, bringing together all its divisions. The York Place office will now function flexibly to accommodate registration appointments to those unable to access the new office.

elbo, a UK based start-up aimed at helping employers find the best tech talent, has launched. elbo aims to overcome what founder John Bentley describes as “outdated hiring practices”. Among its features are a candidate profile builder, a psychometric profiling tool and an interview scheduler that Bentley says eliminates the need for job specs, CVs, recruitment agencies and job boards, and results in “highly relevant shortlists in minutes”.

• North Wales-based recruiter Supertemps is expanding by opening a new office in Bangor. Four staff will be based at the company’s new Parc Menai site. The company has offices in Colwyn Bay and Anglesey, and a team specifically covering Chester and North-East Wales.
