Video-based hiring platform Tempo secures £1.75m funding

Intelligent video-based hiring platform Tempo has secured £1.75m in funding. The investment was led by Hambro Perks and Michael and Derek Jacobson, with participation from Chris Bruce and Michael Whitfield; the founders of Thomsons Online Benefits.

This takes the company’s total funding to over £3m.

This year Tempo has added Bulb Energy, OakNorth, Zellis and many others to an already impressive client base, which includes Monzo, Uber, Babylon Health and 2,000 others.

With the additional funding, Tempo will be able to continue its aggressive growth, taking its platform to new markets and investing heavily in technology.

Ben Chatfield, CEO & Co-Founder at Tempo said: “Moving jobs or hiring a new employee should be the most exciting part of your professional life – it’s the start of a new journey and new opportunities. Most of us have been left jaded by slow, monotonous and demoralising recruitment processes and agencies.

“Our vision is to turn recruitment on its head. We can give job seekers more options, more direct access to the employers, and ultimately the opportunity for a job they truly love. It is a testament to the progress made by the Tempo team in building a platform that works for candidates and companies, and their demand for greater choice and control in recruitment.”

Dominic Perks, founder of Hambro Perks said: “Hambro Perks is delighted to back Tempo. We are excited by the company’s growth plans and its mission to reinvent the recruitment industry.”
