When Newcastle-born Ben Maughan was looking for somewhere to launch a trailblazing new app, he knew there was only one place for it: the North East.
HiUp looks set to revolutionise the recruitment industry by giving jobseekers a place to create a virtual CV. The app finds jobs which match specific skills and experience and identifies any training which the jobseeker could carry out to improve their employability. It also allows them to apply for accredited courses to study.
Despite having set up offices in Ireland, Europe, USA, Australia and the Middle East, the firm chose the North East for its official release. The local launch was all thanks to Ben, the company’s UK Marketing Director who felt his home city was the perfect place to unveil HiUp to the world.
Employers now benefit from not having to pay recruitment agency fees. Instead, they get instant access to potential employees with relevant qualifications.
