gatszu.com, a Manchester, UK-based operator of an online recruitment marketplace that connects employers to a nationwide network of independent recruitment agencies, has received a “significant” investment of undisclosed amount from Capital Business Media (CBM).
In return of the investment, CBM has taken a 7% equity stake in the company. The new capital will be used to further develop the functionality of the website, employ sales staff and increase marketing activity.
Launched in February 2010, gatszu.com provides employers with the opportunity to upload their vacancies onto the platform for free, before setting the fixed fee they would be prepared to pay an agency should they place a candidate within the employer’s organisation.
Since it’s inception, gatszu.com has been used by high street retailers, specialist legal, finance, healthcare, construction and IT firms, corporate giants and SMEs.
