Online talent marketplace OneShift, founded by Gen George, has announced its acquisition by Perth-based recruitment company Programmed.
It is fair to say that 2016 has been the biggest year yet for the Australian startup community – but there is a lot to come in 2017.
Sydney-based recruitment startup Skilld has today launched its platform to address the high demand of skills in the hospitality industry. Founder of Skilld Gen George, together with the minister for skills and small business John Barilaro will open up the new match-making service to SMEs and skilled workers.
OneShiftJobs has become one of Australia’s most innovative recruitment platforms since its launch on a barebones Wordpress site in 2012. The last few years have seen the startup raise $5 million, make an acquisition, and expand from its focus on the hospitality and retail sector to the corporate sector, but now it’s going back to its original mission with the launch of Skilld, a new platform that looks to connect small businesses in the hospitality and retail space with local talent.
