Bright Network receives £3.5m investment led by Maven Capital

Maven Capital Partners has today announced that it has led a £3.5m investment in technology recruitment platform Bright Network, which connects employers with graduates.

The transaction also includes investment from private equity firm Seneca Partners.

Maven originally invested in Bright Network in July 2018, alongside existing and angel investors to support the launch of a new Software as a Service (SaaS) solution.

Bright Network chairman is Zach Miles, former CEO of multi-national recruitment company Vedior. James Uffindell is Bright Network’s founder and CEO.

The network has around 280,000 graduate or student members and client organisations include Goldman Sachs, EY, Dyson, P&G and the armed forces, to name a few. 

The Maven statement said this latest funding will support investment in smart matching technology capabilities and enhancing sales and marketing resources.
