Welsh company Digital Profile, at the TramShed Tech in Cardiff, enables users to create a living digital CV and allows companies to advertise opportunities directly to schools and education providers.
The new online careers portal which is aimed at helping employment seekers access to job openings and training, has received £275,000 backing in a Development Bank of Wales-led funding round. Other investors are private investor Giles Phelps and Cardiff Council.
Digital Profile was launched in 2016, and it currently has over 450 approved businesses on its site, offering jobs to 3000+ members using Digital Profile.
Dan Lewis, founder of Digital Profile said that the company wanted to create an engaging platform which allows people to easily change and modify their CV or profile.
“Our system allows candidates to tailor applications simply and to modify their profile as they gain more and more experience.
“It also allows employers and training providers to target appropriate opportunities to a large number of potential candidates at a much more affordable cost and cuts down the amount of admin time needed to manage the process.
“We’ve already had a number of schools, local authorities and employers register on the platform,” concluded Lewis.
Sarah Smith, the Development Bank of Wales investment executive who structured the deal, said: “Dan and the team have a really engaging and user-friendly product.”
“It’s a testament to the innovativeness of the platform that so many people and businesses have already signed-up. With the privacy protection of the platform Digital Profile is perfectly placed to address the concerns employers will face when GDPR regulations kick in May this year.”
Cardiff's Council uses the system and it has invested in the latest funding round.
