Hiring Hub receives £100k grant from Innovate UK

Hiring Hub, a member of the 2014 Future 50 alumni, has secured a £100,000 grant from the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, to help fund its development of an intelligent, cloud-based recruitment system.

The grant, obtained through Innovate UK’s SMART scheme, will support Hiring Hub in its development of a prototype online platform to give SMEs in the UK enterprise-level recruitment software at low cost.

Simon Swan, co-founder and CEO of Hiring Hub, said, “The grant throws additional fuel on our plans to create a truly market-leading, intelligent online recruitment platform utilising the very latest technology to transform how companies in the UK find and hire experienced candidates, while greatly accelerating their recruitment process and dramatically cutting the amount of paper-shuffling and administration normally associated with hiring.”

Formerly called the Technology Strategy Board, Innovate UK is an executive, non-departmental public body sponsored by the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.

It works with companies to find and drive the technology innovations that will grow the UK economy and has invested over £1.5bn to help more than 5,000 companies in projects estimated to add £7.5bn to the UK economy and create 35,000 extra new jobs.
