Tempo attracts £5m Adecco investment

Recruitment platform Tempo has secured £5m in a funding round led by Adecco Group.

Tempo’s end-to-end platform uses technology to simplify the recruitment process, with machine-learning used to match jobseekers to potential employers and video interviews used for screening.

Tempo, which has offices in London and Manchester, has raised more than £8m in investment since it was launched in 2017, with other backers including VC firm Hambro Perks, and Chris Bruce and Michael Whitfield, founders of Thomsons Online Benefits. The latest funding round will be used to invest in technology and to expand further in the UK, with plans to increase the headcount from 35 to 50 in 2020.

Teppo Paavola, chief digital officer at the Adecco Group, said: “This investment is consistent with our own focus on digitisation and enhancing our client and candidate experience through leading-edge technology.”
