FindWork, a startup that acts as a recruitment platform for blue-collar and service industry jobs, has received $2 million in seed funding from angel investor Bernard Chong.
The funding will be used by the company for user acquisition, talent acquisition (particularly for its tech team), and regional expansion. The startup is now looking to expand to other countries, with Malaysia as its next destination.
Kevin Williams, co-founder of the company, said in a statement,
There is unprecedented opportunity in the industry for change – with high turnover rates, many blue collar and service industry workers in the region need quick access to suitable jobs. This is where FindWork comes in to target this potential with technology that enables faster matching between job seekers and hiring companies.
The startup, launched in February by co-founders Kevin Williams and Allen Tan, aims to “better connect” employers with blue collar and service industry job-seekers. FindWork currently operates in Indonesia and the Philippines, the startup claimed to have secured over 30,000 job-seekers and over 500 companies on board since its launch.
Claiming a “steady” 15 per cent week-on-week growth since its launch, the startup named Orang Tua Group, Alfamart, and Burger King as its users in Indonesia and Starbucks, Fruitas, and Ministop as users in the Philippines.
