– GERMANY, Berlin – Zenjob, the Digital recruitment agency has successfully completed its €27 million Series C financing round led by Forestay Capital alongside other investors including the existing investors Redalpine, Acton Capital, Axa Venture Partners and Atlantic Labs.
Zenjob provides student assistants to large and medium-sized companies from the logistics, retail and office sectors via app. New customers are digitally introduced to all processes and can then order staff via an online booking portal. This enables companies to find temporary workers quickly and flexibly in order to react to short-term personnel needs or seasonal fluctuations. The job-candidate matching enables students to find a job near them on the same day. Zenjob reaches 15,000 students a day via the app.
Germany-wide expansion and investment in new, efficient technologies The new financing primarily serves to expand into other cities. Zenjob plans to offer its personnel service throughout Germany by the end of the year. The Berlin-based company is currently represented in 14 cities. The technology is also to be further developed as part of the financing. Zenjob enables its customers to achieve high-efficiency gains and takes over the entire process for temporary staffing, from personnel search to billing. Algorithms are also intended to help predict staff demand even better.
Fritz Trott, Co-Founder and CEO of Zenjob, comments: “We continue to invest in our technology and expansion. Companies will soon be able to book hourly staff across Germany within 24 hours and use them much more efficiently than before. The same applies to students on the employee side, we enable real flexibility in the student job. Instead of paperwork and tedious interviews, the app goes directly to the right job. Contactless – that’s what Corona calls for, especially in logistics and retail. Thanks to our technology, we can hire hundreds of new students every day and fill vacancies. ”
