Tempo video-based hiring platform secures £1.75m funding


Tempo claims to be the future of recruitment. The intelligent video-based hiring platform recently secured £1.75m in funding. This latest funding round takes the tech platform’s total funding to over £3m.

Their most recent investment was led by Hambro Perks and Michael and Derek Jacobson. The round also saw participation from Chris Bruce and Michael Whitfield; the founders of Thomsons Online Benefits.

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

Tempo will use the additional funding to continue its remarkable growth. The company plans to invest heavily in technology, as well as take its platform to new markets.

The CEO & Co-Founder of Tempo, Ben Chatfield, 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.”

Commenting on their investment, 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.”
