On 9th November we have an interactive panel session on the topic of How to Build and Fund Your Job Board Business. The panel is made up of James Uffindell – CEO & Founder of Bright Network, Lee Biggins – founder and managing director of CV-Library and Alex Fourlis – Managing Director of Careerbuilder UK.
James will be hosting the session and is an entrepreneur, investor and one of the UK’s leading experts on the recruitment market. He’s an expert on entrepreneurship, building high-growth businesses, venture investing, private equity, social mobility at university level, the graduate job market, internships, entry level talent, and managing and engaging millennial employees.
Lee has established the UK’s leading independent job site and has always been an entrepreneur at heart, and even from an early age, his entrepreneurial spirit shone through. Growing up in Fleet, Hampshire meant that Lee was just a short walk away from the Basingstoke Canal, and on hot days he would sell cold cans of coke to fishermen. This drive led to Lee running his own car washing empire as a teenager, and ultimately carried through to the developmental days of CV-Library.
Alex is one of the pioneers of internet recruitment in Greece having been involved in the creation of Kariera.gr which is the number one jobsite in Greece. Kariera.gr was acquired by Careerbuilder in 2007 and in 2011 Alex became Managing Director of Careerbuilder for Greece, Cyprus and Spain moving to the UK in 2016.
During their 45 minute session they’ll be covering topics such as:
- Funding businesses growth
- Key challenges in running market leading job boards
- Trends in the market
- Recommendations for job board owners thinking about if they should sell or build.
- They’ll also, of course, be taking questions from the audience.
