gigl Closes $1.5M in Funding Round


gigl, a London, UK-based video-based job platform on a mission to solve the UK hospitality staffing shortage, closed a $1.5m funding round.

The round was led by Cerebrum Tech and supported by OxBridge Angels, Campden Hill Capital and others including serial events industry entrepreneurs and the former CFO of Deliveroo.

The company intends to use the funds to grow its marketing coverage, tech offerings, and further expand its user base with increased targeting of SMEs. 

Led by Dan Hudson, CEO, gigl provides a mobile and video first platform that enables employers to combine the application process, telephone screening and 1st round interview into a 60-second video. At the same time, prospective candidates view a 60-second intro video from the employer. Applicants decide if the role and work culture is suitable for them. 

The platform is used by employers such as Hard Rock Hotel, Subway and Tortilla.
