Gi Group, one of Italy’s largest staffing companies that ranks among the top ten recruitment firms in Europe, has completed the acquisition of Swiss job aggregator Jobtome. The acquisition will support JobToMe’s growth and expansion plans.
Based in Switzerland, Jobtome was founded in 2014 and is active in 35 countries across Europe, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. The company lists around nine million job ads indexed by 10,000 sites worldwide.
Gi Group provides various recruitment and HR services. As a multinational staffing company, the group began its international expansion in 2007 and now operates in more than 50 countries across the globe.
“We believe the most important challenge is to ensure an ever more effective and efficient matching of labour demand and supply and to be attractive to candidates,” said Stefano Colli-Lanzi, Gi Group’s CEO and President.
“In Jobtome we’ve identified the ideal response to these challenges. Its platform and the implementation of programmatic advertising technology will allow us to increase our capacity to bring together candidates and businesses,” added Colli-Lanzi.
Gi Group received legal counsel from SZA, Bär & Karrer and Studio Pirola e Associati while financial counsel was provided by Fitidal Spa. Jobtome was assisted by investment bank GCA Altium and international law firm Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe.
